The basics

Baldi Hot Springs offers day packages as well as overnight options at an adjoining resort for guests who want to extend their spa experience. More than 20 naturally heated pools range in temperature from 93 to 152 degrees Fahrenheit (34 to 67 degrees Celsius), getting hotter as the elevation rises. The volcanic minerals in the water are believed to have benefits for the skin and body circulation. Adventure seekers and families with kids can enjoy some splashy thrills with extreme waterslides and cascading waterfalls.

Baldi Hot Springs is a common stop on day trips from San Jose. Combo tours may include a soak in the springs plus a hike along mountain trails or hanging bridges at nearby Arenal Volcano National Park.

How to get there

Baldi Hot Springs is located just minutes from the town of La Fortuna in Costa Rica’s Alajuela province. It's about a 3-hour drive from San Jose. Despite its proximity to Arenal Volcano, the resort is outside of the designated volcano risk zone, so it’s perfectly safe to visit.

When to get there

The resort is open all year round. Hotter temps and sunnier skies prevail in Costa Rica's dry season, from November to April, while the wet season (May through October) often brings afternoon rainstorms.

Arenal Volcano National Park

A restorative soak in Baldi Hot Springs is the perfect way to end a day exploring the hiking trails, lakes, and jungles of Arenal Volcano National Park. Visitors can get up close to treetop flora and fauna on a series of elevated walkways, or explore volcanic fields and lava tubes from previous eruptions on a guided hike or horseback ride. If you can’t wait to get wet, the park’s La Fortuna Waterfall offers the perfect place to cool off during a daytime trek.
