    Discover Costa Rica’s largest network of naturally flowing thermal mineral springs in Arenal’s largest and most beautiful private rainforest reserve. Tabacon Thermal Resort & Spa lies between the majestic Arenal Volcano and the Arenal Volcano National Park. The road to Tabacon takes you to the heart of the jungle, so expect the sounds and sights of the native flora and fauna to flood your senses. This is where the thermal experience begins.

    Set on more than 900 acres of lush tropical reserve, Tabacon Thermal Resort & Spa offers 103 luxurious guest rooms and suites; two open-air, full-service restaurants; four bars and a world-class spa. Tabacon’s main sunbathing and swimming area features five cascading pools, a swim-up bar, waterfalls, and the thermal water slide, and just a couple of minutes by foot into the dense rainforest lies a cold-water pool too.

    All of Tabacon’s water has always been and will always be true, thermal water, naturally heated by the volcano and slowly mineralized underground. An essential part of exploring the wondrous world of the Tabacon Hot Springs is soaking in the cascading thermal waterfalls. This natural hydrotherapy is a surefire way to achieve proper relaxation. Guests tend to thoroughly enjoy exploring the numerous river pools, with their varying temperatures and water flows.

    The winner and their guest will be staying in a recently remodeled Orchid Room, offering vast open spaces with unobstructed views of the exterior tropical setting magnificently complemented by a modern interior with colorful décor. The bathroom features a “rainforest shower” with natural skylight, while the shower floors have been meticulously pieced together with local stones that gently massage your feet. There is a cozy sitting area that invites guests to read, lounge, or relax. Other amenities include 42″ flat screen TV, a comfortable king bed fitted with a sofa bed or two queen beds, both with luxurious bed linens, nightly turn-down service, wifi internet access and 24-hour in-room dining.
