This place is surrounded by lush nature. The hot springs are in the middle of the woods which lets you feel much connected to the natural setting. It is smaller than other springs in the area but this just makes it more private. We also...More

This place is like a magical paradise! We went for the 5pm-10pm session, arriving just after 5 so it was dusky. The bonus of these hot springs, is that numbers of visitors are limited to 100, so it always feels relaxing and never crowded. It...More

We went to Ecotermales last week after reviewing many of the local hot springs on TA! We were thrilled with our choice. We took a taxi from our Airbnb, arriving at 5pm (booked 5 to 10pm shift) so we could see the grounds before it...More

We went to two different hot springs in La Fortuna and Eco Termales was our favorite of the two, by far. It felt intimate, serene, less crowded and more friendly and laid back. The other, Tabacon, is also beautiful - but more people, more of...More

This place is so relaxing. I thought this would be a highlight of a once in a lifetime holiday and it didn’t disappoint. The pools are really hot and there is plenty of space to escape people. It’s good that numbers are limited. Favourite moment...More

I highly recommend these Hot Springs over any others in Costa Rica. They are private so they are a bit more expensive but they only let a certain amount of people in at a time. The Hot Springs have 8 to 10 different baths all...More

While the Hot Springs are amazing, the buffet is pretty terrible. Enjoy the Hot Springs, but skip the buffet.

Ok, so I have to admit I’m a bit of a germ-a-phobe. And a little terrified of random illness such as the one caused by Naegleria fowleri. But even I loved soaking in the hot springs! WOW I have never felt so well and so...More

Beautiful facilities, very relaxing hot springs and awesome dinner buffet. The hottest pool is approximately 110 degrees. The buffet has a very nice selection from rice, pasta, vegetables and salads to chicken, beef and even dessert.

Whilst you can buy alcohol there it's really not a party type place. V wry relaxed and people tend to keep themselves to themselves.

Not swimming deep. The deepest point in any seems to be less than 5' and most are much less with gentle slope from all sides. I don't swim either and never felt in any danger.
