Natural hot mineral springs, pools, and waterfalls

With 28 hot springs pools spanning over 4 acres of landscaped recreational area, there is plenty of room to spread out and relax. Our freeform, landscaped pools provide guests with great views of the volcano and a multitude of options. With temperatures ranging from 83˚F to 103˚F and environments that vary from raging waterfalls to tranquil forest experiences, guests can find the perfect pool for their mood and the current weather conditions.

Chemical analysis of the minerals in the hot springs shows that they have the best hot springs in Arenal, La Fortuna with the highest parts per million of beneficial minerals. Tests of our hot mineral springs reveal an ideal natural combination of high bicarbonate and high chlorides with relatively low sulfur content to provide a safe and clean soaking experience.

Las Lagunas (The Lagoons), located at the base of the reception building, encompass two acres of lush landscaping and an assortment of multi-level sun and shade terraces surrounding twelve pools. Four of the pools are fed directly by water pumped from the hot mineral springs and the other eight are chlorinated but heated to various temperatures by our Hot Springs through a heat exchange system. These pools range in temperature from 83˚F to 103˚F.
