HOT SPRINGS

Mineral-rich hot springs have rejuvenating and therapeutic properties treasured for centuries by people all over the world. When you visit Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin and Rincon de la Vieja, you must experience the incredible hot springs at Rio Negro.

Beautiful and relaxing, the volcanic hot springs bubble up in the Rio Negro (“Black River”), heated naturally by the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano – the largest and most active volcano in Guanacaste, Costa Rica.

Surrounded by thick forest, the crystal clear river flows through 10 man-made pools we have created to capture the steaming mineral-rich water. You access pools (of varying temperatures) on both sides of the river by two hanging bridges. Heated volcanic clay is available to smooth all over like a “spa body masque.” After it dries, wash it off with a cool shower or jump in the river before soaking again in the hot pools. The complete relaxation is pure bliss.

There are changing rooms, bathrooms and lockers at the hot springs entrance. From there, you will walk an easy trail less than a quarter-mile (350 meters) through the forest to the hot springs pools.
