Hot Springs at Rincón de la Vieja
Unforgettable relaxation at Rincón de la Vieja, Guanacaste
Enjoy the best hot springs at Rincón de la Vieja Volcano with Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin!
Visit the Sulphur Springs (“Azufrales”) and also Río Negro (Black River) thermal springs by the Rincón de la Vieja National Park. You can get to both locations either by horseback riding or hiking scenic trails through tropical dry forest. Río Negro also is accessible by vehicle.
Surrounded by tropical dry forest, the Río Negro (Black River) Hot Springs feature six pools with thermal waters heated naturally by the Rincón de la Vieja Volcano. The soothing mineral waters are crystal clear and all natural, and the river flows through the pools constantly refilling them with water. Relax and enjoy luxuriating in our healing waters. You can also try our volcanic mud “bath”, where you smooth volcanic clay mud all over yourself like a spa “masque,” then after it dries, wash it off with a cool river water shower. The hot springs water will feel great afterwards!
Try our all-natural Symbiosis Spa, located on the Hacienda Guachipelín Ranch by the Colorado River, for the ultimate in relaxation at Rincón de la Vieja. For your optimum spa experience, we recommend starting with a natural sauna for about 15 minutes to open all of your skin’s pores, and then proceed to our volcanic mud pots where you apply the pure mineral clay mud all over. Let it dry and afterward wash it off by taking a shower. Then it’s time to relax in your choice of three thermal water pools for about 20 minutes. Finish off your treatment with a cold shower so the pores of your skin can close again, and you’ll feel completely new!
