Relax in the Hot Springs & Enjoy a Delicious Lunch
The mineral-rich thermal waters of hot springs have rejuvenating and therapeutic properties that have been appreciated for centuries by people around the world. When you visit Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin and Rincon de la Vieja, you can experience the incredible hot springs of Rio Negro.
Beautiful and relaxing, the volcanic hot springs at Hacienda Guachipelin bubble up on the Rio Negro, naturally heated by the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano, the largest and most active volcano in Guanacaste, Costa Rica.
Surrounded by a dense dry tropical forest, the Termales de Rio Negro is a beautiful and peaceful place. The crystal clear waters of the river flow near the 10 pools built on the riverbank and fill them with thermal waters rich with minerals, naturally heated in the depths of the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano. You can access pools on both banks of the river thanks to two suspension bridges.
You can use the hot volcanic mud as a spa-like treatment on your entire body. When the mud dries, you can wash it in the cold waters of the river before entering the thermal water pools again.
We have dressing rooms, bathrooms, and lockers at the entrance of the hot springs. From there, you can walk 350 meters along a beautiful path in the woods until you reach the thermal springs. It’s a truly relaxing and natural experience.
