What’s the only thing better than visiting hot springs in the uplands of La Fortuna? How about splashing inside of the hot springs after racing top speed down a slide. At the Kalambu Hot Springs Water Park, travelers can soak in thermally heat pools near the base of Arenal volcano, while enjoying the comforts, smiles, and thrills you’d expect of a modern waterpark. At the four-story tower that’s known as The Mammoth, sit in a wide, circular raft and pack it full of your friends, and then go shooting nearly 400 feet down a winding, twisting slide. The Triple Slide has triple the fun, and you can race your friends or family members to see who splashes down first. You’ll also find an interactive play area for children—just don’t get caught beneath the big bucket when it splashes down water from above!
Insider's Tip: For a truly unique La Fortuna experience, visit the waterpark at night.
Locker rental is $3 and towels are available for a $7 deposit. There is a restaurant on site, although no outside food is allowed. Many of the water slides have a minimum age of 6 years old, and children under 6 years old must be accompanied by an adult in the play area.
