Really nice place, didn’t like that just because you’re not National you need to pay a lot more, but really nice place, they work with reservation and there is not a lot of people what is really good! Also they offer you lockers and towels.

We spent a few hours at this heavenly place. The day we visited was rainy but it did not take away from the great experience. They have many tiers of pools, each a little bit hotter as you climb up. There is nice food and...More

Ecotermales is as close to being in the original jungle as can be had in La Fortunate. We were surrounded by trees, frogs, and hot springs. There were even howler monkeys in the trees’ canopy! I did not hear any other native English speakers, so...More
