Few sites in Costa Rica inspire more respect and admiration than the Arenal Volcano.& At 5437 feet, it’s tall and conical shape stands imposing over the pastured green hillsides that surround its base. Although currently in a resting phase, Arenal remains Costa Rica’s most active volcano for the past 43 years. Its history includes some eruptions – both major and minor – that have intimately affected the region and the people who live here.
On the way to La Fortuna, a stop is made in Sarchi, the country’s most famous crafts and souvenir town.& As the trip continues, the group will pass by different plantations of tropical crops and ornamental plants and also cattle ranches. Lunch is taken in a cozy restaurant with an excellent view of the volcano.
After lunch, a visit to the Arenal Lake is made. To end the afternoon, everyone will be able to relax in one of the best thermal water places in the area where they can enjoy a healthy and relaxing soak.
Hot springs are considered a natural expression of Earth’s energy. Geologically speaking, Tabacon Resort’s thermal natural springs are 97% rain-based and 3% magma-based. Rainwater enters the earth through fissures on the surface and is then heated by magma found in the earth’s core.
Once heated, the waters rise to surface, taking with them minerals found in the earth’s rocky stratus. Tabacon is a completely natural resort. There are five different springs in the property, with temperatures ranging from 25 degrees Celsius (77 degrees Fahrenheit) to 50 degrees Celsius (122 degrees Fahrenheit). Water flows by gravity throughout the property, forming in-river pools, waterfalls, and cascades.
Hot springs provide many benefits thanks to various chemical, physical and biological effects; the most notable is a sensation of wellbeing coming from relaxing tense and tired muscles. Shangri-La Gardens is a luxury area, exclusive for adults.& It is a private area of lush gardens and six natural thermal mineral spring water pools, naturally heated.
