What you can expect

Admire the volcanic colossus of Arenal – though it hasn’t erupted recently, this cinder cone on the Costa Rican skyline is considered one of the world’s most active volcanoes. Then, soak up the thermal benefits in the mineral-rich waters at Tabacon Grand Spa’s natural hot springs.

After being picked up from your hotel, set out across the Costa Rican countryside to La Fortuna. As you approach Arenal volcano, you can see the lush jungle on its slopes. As recently as 2012, it wouldn’t have been uncommon to see puffs of billowing steam and even rivulets of molten lava running down these hillsides.

In La Fortuna, explore the charming rural town that sits in the shadow of this threatening and fiery geological formation. Over lunch, learn about Costa Rica’s natural history and past eruptions at Arenal – in a violent 1968 eruption it buried three surrounding villages after nearly 400 years of dormancy – and then venture into the verdant jungle to the hot springs bubbling up from the area’s underground thermal activity.

Immerse yourself in the therapeutic waters at Tabacon Grand Spa and Thermal Resort as evening falls. You can choose to take advantage of the spa treatments on offer (additional fee) at the resort, or just enjoy the hot springs and natural scenery until dinnertime. After a delicious meal of Costa Rican specialities, leave the volcano behind and make your way back to San José.
