Arenal volcano and Tabacón hot springs tour from San José

Rumble through the jungle on a trip to unreal Arenal, Costa Rica's most active volcano, followed by a chance to relax in the luxurious Tabacón hot springs on this guided day trip from San José. The volcano is pretty young by volcano standards, at only 7,500 years old, but what it lacks in age it makes up for in activity with regular small eruptions and grumblings. Thankfully the volcano also heats the healing waters of Tabacón hot springs, which flow naturally through the result into a series of pools in a paradise jungle setting. On your way to Arenal, pass through La Fortuna, the closest town, where on a clear day you can enjoy unparalleled views of the mighty colossus towering above. This huge volcano periodically erupts, roaring like thunder and sending clouds of smoke and ash into the sky. Thankfully these days it's pretty quiet, although you might still feel the odd rumbling at your next destination, the Tabacón hot springs, where you can heat up in geothermal pools and cool down in the natural cold river stream running down through the rainforest. Tabacón is Costa Rica's Premier hot springs resort, with excellent eco-friendly and carbon neutral credentials, and plenty of opportunities to enjoy revitalising treatments, as well as a delicious lunch. Time slips away in the resort while you explore the beautiful pools, waterfalls and cascades, and soon it's time for a tasty dinner full of local specialities. Now is your chance to witness the spectacle of the volcano at night, as the red lava snakes down the mountain and illuminates the sky like a magnificent display of fireworks. The ultimate combination of exhilaration and relaxation, this volcano and spa tour will leave you relaxed, rejuvenated and inspired by Costa Rica's incredible nature.
