What You Can Expect

Best Arenal Volcano Hiking Tour with Hot Springs

Arenal Volcano Hiking Tour and Hot Springs

Depart your Arenal-area hotel for a leisurely afternoon hike in Arenal Volcano National Park, where you'll walk along the border of this amazing natural attraction. Your hike begins at the volcano's slopes, and although you'll be a safe distance away from the active crater, you'll still feel the excitement of walking near this majestic giant.

Inside the national park, there are various hiking trails along which you’ll walk with your guide. They include both secondary forest and lava fields from previous eruptions. Feel the rush of hiking alongside an active volcano, but don't worry about coming across hot lava, as safety is the number one priority and local authorities will not hesitate to close off portions of the trails in order to keep you safe.

After your hike, it's time to relax at the hot springs and enjoy dinner! Costa Rica is known for its hot springs, and you can choose the location that best fits your needs.

Baldi Hot Springs:
The relaxation area of the Baldi Hot Springs Hotel and Spa consists of several therapeutic pools, all with different water temperatures. The spa is family-oriented and caters to both adults and children .

Ecotermales Hot Springs:
The Ecotermales Hot Springs is one of the smallest sanctuaries in the area. Family owned, it is geared toward privacy and relaxation and consists of four individual pools ranging between 91 degrees Fahrenheit (33 degrees Celsius) and 105 degrees Fahrenheit (41 degrees Celsius).

Tabacon Hot Springs:
The Tabacon Hot Springs are the most luxurious and closest to Arenal Volcano, so you can enjoy panoramic views of the crater as you relax. Tabacon was also the first hot springs to be opened to the public in the Arenal region – it’s a Costa Rica favorite!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

This tour was awesome!! Though we couldn't hike to the top based on government regulations, it was awesome. The hike was moderate and started off very flat. Our tour guide Roy would stop several times on the path to show us different plants/trees and also to show us the new vegetation that grew after the volcano erupted. He was great! Highly recommend him for more tours and hope to see him again soon. :)

4 star rating: Recommended December 2013

We really enjoyed the spa we chose there were 28 different pools plus there was 3 water slides what a blast.

3 star rating: Worth doing August 2015

I gave this 3 stars because the hike was great and very educational! The hot springs was actually in my opinion overrated. Most of the money go towards your ticket to the hot springs. We went to Baldi Hot Springs and it was big and fancy and had a lot of different thermal pools but it was too crowded for me. Everything there was also very over priced, drinks, gifts etc and did not match in value for what you were getting. So in conclusion, please do the hike and get that amazing experience with wonderful picture opportunities but skip the hot springs, or do one of the free hot springs if you want to experience it.
