Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort

Inter-American Hwy. N.
La Fortuna , Costa Rica http://www.tabacon.com/
506-2479-2000

One of the 10 most active volcanoes in the world, Arenal produces intense geothermic energy in north central Costa Rica, feeding mineral springs throughout the region. Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort provides luxury access to the waters with a selection of plush rooms and suites, each furnished with handicrafts made by Costa Rican artisans. Although the concierge can arrange activities like nature tours, zip lining, and white-water rafting, it’s the adjacent thermal spa that is the main attraction. Local ingredients like volcanic mud, coffee, and coconut are used in a range of treatments from massages to exfoliations and wraps.
