Description

Admire the volcanic colossus of Arenal—though it hasn’t erupted recently, this cinder cone on the Costa Rican skyline is considered one of the world’s most active volcanoes. Then, soak up the thermal benefits in the mineral-rich waters at Tabacon Grand Spa’s natural hot springs.

After being picked up from your hotel, set out across the Costa Rican countryside to La Fortuna. As you approach Arenal volcano, you can see the lush jungle on its slopes. As recently as 2012, it wouldn’t have been uncommon to see puffs of billowing steam and even rivulets of molten lava running down these hillsides.

In La Fortuna, explore the charming rural township that sits in the shadow of this threatening and fiery geological formation. Over lunch, learn about Costa Rica’s natural history and past eruptions at Arenal—in a violent 1968 eruption it buried 3 surrounding villages after nearly 400 years of dormancy—and then venture into the verdant jungle to the hot springs bubbling up from the area’s underground thermal activity.

Immerse yourself in the therapeutic waters at Tabacon Grand Spa and Thermal Resort as evening falls. You can choose to take advantage of the spa treatments on offer at the resort, or just enjoy the hot springs and natural scenery until dinnertime. After a delicious meal of Costa Rican specialties, leave the volcano behind and make your way back to San Jose.

The tour is not at all what you expect. The description makes it sound like you’re going to see the volcano but you really just pas it by from your your bus - very disappointing since you can’t even get out and take pictures. You spend about 6 hours driving up and down hilly roads through towns (also not told to you ahead of time). It also describes English commentary and we were given a driver who spoke no English and his brief commentary was on his phone using google translate, and nothing was commenting on the tour itself, it was simply giving us directions. We got picked up at 6:40 am and did not return home until 10 pm. The hot springs resort was beautiful but we did not feel like being there from 12-5 . The buffet dinner and the lunch helped redeem this trip. I would not spend the money again - there are other better tours offered.
