In La Fortuna, you could spend a lot of money for "Hot Springs experience" OR spend $12 at this place. There are several hot pools with varying temperatures. Kids loved the slides. The place is well-maintained and lockers are available.

Came here with my five kids and my wife's parents. We all had a blast. The slides were fun. The hot tubs were relaxing. Staff was friendly. Very clean and beautiful with great views of the volcano.

If you are visiting fortuna, i would goto a different hot springs. This feels like you are visiting a public pool, except with extremely hot water. If it is a cold day this might be nice, but when it is so hot no

I don't know how the other hot springs stay busy. This facility is amazing. Multiple spring pools and swimming pools. Super clean facilities. And the lowest price in town. $12 You will be so happy you picked this hot springs!!

I think this is the cheapest hot springs in the area (12 USD per person). 9 pools with different temperature. Note that you have to bring your own towels, food&drinks, if needed - there is no bar there. Amazing place to spend an afternoon or an evening (it is open until 9 pm) with a possibility to have your dinner... More

Stopped by for an afternoon with a friend. Cheap and easy entrance, good parking. Varied pools with varied temperatures. Very family-friendly place. The ranchitos were plentiful and equipped with lights, outlets, a 'caja fuerte,' etc. Very nice place overall and great value for the money. I belive it was around 6000colones/pax.

Our taxi driver recommended this hot springs and we took him up on it with no regrets. Lots of different pools to swim in ranging from truly hot to Canadian lake cold. Clearly a popular spot with the locals and for good reason; a good place to observe culture in action including hot pots a-go at picnic tables, Latin music... More

Rather than go to a touristy hot springs location, Enrique from the La Fortuna hotel recommended we go here, which was frequented by locals. The cost was about $12 per person – significantly below the entrance fees for the larger resort operations. The location was a short taxi ride from our hotel and maybe because we went mid-week, the place... More
