Tabacón Grand Spa
The Arenal volcano region in north central Costa Rica has always attracted pilgrims to the natural hydrotherapy provided by the hot springs and waterfalls. The Tabacon Grand Spa blends these outdoor surroundings with luxury service to create treatments that range from body massages to exfoliations and wraps, often with local ingredients like volcanic mud, coffee, and coconut. For a more intense experience, consider the Temazcal — a traditional sweat bath using indigenous medicines and led by a shaman, who employs hydrotherapy, aromatherapy, chanting, and meditation exercises.
