The Perfect Combination of Nature and Relaxation

Water & Fire

In just one day you will experience the two most impressive natural wonders in Costa Rica, the world renowned La Paz Waterfall Gardens Nature Park and the awe inspiring Arenal Volcano.

This perfect combination of nature and relaxation allows you to enjoy the morning hiking lush waterfall trails and interacting with an assortment of Costa Rican wildlife such as toucans, butterflies, monkeys, hummingbirds, snakes, jungle cats and frogs while spending the afternoon relaxing in Arenal’s most exclusive hot springs at the ultra luxurious Springs Resort & Spa where the commanding view of the grand, steaming volcano is unrivaled. You might want to indulge in a tropical treatment or massage at this resort’s extraordinary Spa.

You will be served breakfast at a traditional Tico restaurant on the way from San José and enjoy a buffet lunch in Colibries Restaurant at La Paz Waterfall Gardens. At The Springs Resort & Spa you can opt to receive $20 in spending chips to use at any one of the four restaurants or four bars including one of the top Sushi restaurants in Costa Rica or you may choose to partake of the gourmet buffet or special a la carte menu instead of the spending chips. We offer this flexibility to make your visit more pleasurable.
