Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Costa Rica434 contributions87 helpful votes
I have been coming here for the past 10 years every time I visit Costa Rica, which is 5x now. It is my parents favourite place and they live in Peurto Viejo so the visit every few months. This beautiful place offers not only a 'jungle like experince in the thermal pool area, but boosts of a great restaurant, too. The breakfasts are buffet style and feature some of the typical dishes. The menu has a wide variety of choices and chez Javier is amazing! The habitations are spacious and super clean, with room cleaning service provided daily. The habitations have kitchens which are fully equipped to prepare whatever food you bring, as well as a coffee maker, stove, micowave, refrigerator/freezer. The grounds outside the habitation are maintained beautiful and provides a true tropical setting. There is furniture inside that can be moved outside to sit and relax on the pation, too. And, getting to the pools themselves, the best part! There are 6 different hot pools, in varying temperatures.. They are all clean and well maintained, water is changed very regularly, with fast moving water passing from pools and passing through non stop. There is a bar, which sells drinks and limited food items. The staff are very friendly and wonderful! Their is also a spa service with AMAZING great prices! I loved my reflexology treatment and also the facial! Getting to and from the pool area does require walking down a long path, paved in stones, which is beautiful and in a jungle area, you can even see two types of monkeys in the trees sometimes, and morpho butterflies! It takes about 5 to 7 minutes to walk down to the pools and the way back is up hill.. This is and will always remain my favourite place to visit in Costa Rica.. The staff is so friendly and nice, we always feel so welcome and have the true Costa Rican warm hospitality! I will be back again. Pura Vida

Visited 12-23 as 2 couples Entrance with lunch was only $15 USD per person. No way you can get this much for that price anywhere else in the country. Hot springs have varied temps which is great. They are also labeled. Cold river to get into if you need to cool off as well. Lunch was really good. Main course with veggies and drinks and arroz con leche and coffee. All for $15. Great buy.

Friendly staff. Fun daily hike with the ranch hand. My only lackluster review would be of the restaurant. Breakfast was A+. Dinner was just OK but we were there a night they had a buffet set up due to a big group. I’m not a buffet fan. We should have ordered off the menu and bypassed the buffet. Saturday night there was a discotheque across the highway which was playing some loud music. It eventually ended and we dozed nicely. If you want a real feel for Costa Rica, this is the place. We purposely decided the Arenal area hot springs was not for us. We wanted a more localized, authentic experience and we got it!

If you want the full tropical experience, visit this former farm turned into a hotel/hot springs spot. You can just pay for the springs for the day, bring your towels, sip a cocktail and relax. You must walk in the middle of the forest on your way in and out: have an umbrella or rain jacket at hand, since it rains often there. Tip: if you are bringing children, it is better in the day time, as couples prefer the evenings there.

We went on a national holiday during the week in the morning, and pretty much had the place to ourselves. It is the thermal waters of Hotel Termales del Bosque, they are volcanic waters heated from Volcán Platanar. You don't have to stay at the hotel to visit the thermal waters. The hotel's sign is right on the main road between Ciudad Quesada and Aguas Zarcas. You turn off, and follow the signs to the thermal waters (don't stop at reception, you pay at the entrance of the thermal waters), which is about 1/4km driving on a dirt road (any car will be ok). It dead ends at a parking lot and the entrance to the thermal waters. The fee is 6,000 adults, 3,000 kids, open 8am-10pm. No water toys are allowed, nor cans of soft drinks. From the entrance to the pool area, it is a trail going through primary rainforest for about 5-8min walk. When you get to the end, it opens up at the river where there are two bridges, and the natural looking rock pools appear in sight. They all have signs stating the temperature of the pool in Celcius. Since it is surrounded by tall primary forest, only one or two pools are exposed to sun. All other ones are in the shade, with branches above offering natural sun protection. All the pools we went into have a reasonable shallow depth for toddlers, allowing my son who is 96cm tall to walk around freely without fear of drowning. There is a changing area, lockers (opcional, 1,500 colones, have to be paid for at start of trail entrance), restrooms, showers, and a small bar/food stand that serves basic items like french fries or soft drink or beer, with a handful of tables, all under a roof. Off to another area there is the new spa area, however I didn't try that on this trip. There is a stone structure before the pools that perhaps anyone would ignore, however you can open the door, and it is a sauna. However it didn't heat much it is a structure built above one hot water pool, so when you go inside you will see that the floor is made up of wooden slats, allowing view of the water below. As any Tico would say, this place is BBB, bonito, bueno y barato. This is my favorite thermal water.
