Costa Rica is known for its incredible natural beauty, laid back vibes and picture-perfect views. Nowhere is this more evident than the Rio Negro Hot Springs. This pristine destination is home to six thermal pools with waters that are naturally heated by the nearby Ricon de la Vieja Volcano. A constant flow of water from a crystal clear river ensures the pools are always being replenished.
Tired travelers will have the chance to experience true rejuvenation on a visit to this popular destination. They can enjoy the healing benefits of a volcanic mud bath by smoothing clay over their entire body, then taking a dip in a thermal pool once it’s dried. Rio Negro Hot Springs is the perfect natural escape for visitors to Costa Rica who want to experience ultimate luxury and ultimate relaxation.
Travelers can get to Rio Negro using one of two transportation options: Horseback or car/minibus. Horses can be picked up at Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin for a 1.5-hour trip each way. Minibuses also depart from the same location for a ride that is about 20 minutes each way. Entrance to the hot springs is $10 and includes a towel.
