With temperatures ranging from 76˚F to 103˚F and environments that vary from raging waterfalls to tranquil forest experiences our guests can find the perfect pool for their mood and the current weather conditions. Tests of the hot mineral springs reveal an ideal natural combination of high bicarbonate and high chlorides with relatively low sulfur content to provide a safe and clean soaking experience. Las Lagunas (The Lagoons) Located at the base of the reception building this area encompasses two acres of lush landscaping and an assortment of multi-level sun and shade terraces surrounding twelve pools.
Four of the pools are fed directly by water pumped from our Hot Mineral Springs and the other eight are chlorinated but heated to various temperatures by our Hot Springs through a heat exchange system. These pools range in temperature from 83˚F to 103˚F. Perdido Springs (Lost Springs) is a connected system of trails and seven spring fed pools located within a forest canyon just a short 100 meter walk from the lowest level of the Las Lagunas pools.

In the center of these pools is a small jungle bar called Los Perdidos (The Lost Ones) along with a water flume called the Monkey Slide. These pools range in temperature from 90˚F to 101˚F. In the fall of 2010 we hope to open a second phase of pools down in the valley overlooking the Arenal River as well as a creek-fed, old fashioned, swimming hole near the river with hot springs percolating up from the sand below. Of course, the kilometer of river frontage on the property lends itself to a variety of activities including swimming, inner-tubing, kayaking, fishing and hiking.
