For bird lovers, our gardens create a natural Paradise, where 138 indigenous and migratory species have been documented. These species are registered with photographs in the Arenal Springs Bird Booklet, which is available in the reception areas, so that our guests can create their own tour.

The hot springs of Arenal Springs Hotel are hundred percent natural and rich in mineral salts and ions such as Calcium (CA+2), Magnesium (Mg+2) and Chloride (CL-) as they come from underground sources of the Arenal Volcano. Due to high mineral concentration, while soaking in these waters, your skin is moisturized and refreshed.

Our hot springs have been created to give you the feeling that you are in natural thermal river in the middle of the rainforest. Tropical gardens surround the river to add to the sensation. The floor of the pools is made from limestone which adds to the soothing atmosphere. The light color allows you to see your feet and verify the cleanliness of the waters.

The thermal water is naturally heated by the Arenal Volcano and its underground rivers. The water reaches our thermal pools taking advantage of the force of gravity without the need for pumping or drilling. The minerals naturally found in the water, such as calcium, magnesium, sodium bicarbonate, and chloride contribute to a complete relaxation of mind and body, promote circulation, and help to balance pH levels, liberate free radicals, soften both skin and hair, and promote better sleep. We have also created special features like carefully chosen river rocks to form the bar stools of the wet bar, waterfalls to offer you a relaxing hydro-massage, and a soothing jacuzzi. The pools range in temperature from 34-40°C (93-104° F) with a pH of 6.7.
