Its history is charged with eruptions – both major and minor – that have intimately affected the region and the people who live here.

Day 7


Buffet breakfast included at the hotel. Day at leisure to enjoy Tabacón Hot Springs, the Spa or to take an optional tour. Hot springs are considered a natural expression of Earth's energy. Geologically, Tabacon Resort's thermal natural springs are 97% rain-based and 3% magma-based. Rainwater enters the earth through fissures on the surface and is then heated by magma found in the earth's core. Once heated, the waters rise to surface, taking with them minerals found in the earth's rocky stratus. Tabacon is a completely natural resort.

There are five different springs in the property, with temperatures ranging from 25 degrees Celsius to 50 degrees Celsius. Water flows by gravity throughout the property, forming in-river pools, waterfalls, and cascades. Hot springs provide many benefits thanks to various chemical, physical and biological effects; the most notable is a sensation of wellbeing coming from relaxing tense and tired muscles. There's a private area of lush gardens and six natural thermal mineral spring water pools for adults only and all naturally heated.
