Combo Lunch + Rio Negro Hot Springs

The mineral-rich thermal waters have rejuvenating and therapeutic properties that have been appreciated for centuries by all peoples around the world. When you visit Hotel Hacienda Guachipelín and Rincón de la Vieja, you can experience the incredible hot springs of Rio Negro.

Beautiful and relaxing, the volcanic hot springs at Hacienda Guachipelín 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 Río Negro are a beautiful and peaceful place. The crystal clear waters of the river flow near the 10 pools built on the riverbank and filled with thermal waters filled 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 hot volcanic mud, which allows you to have 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.

All tours are arranged at Hacienda Guachipelin’s Adventure Center; open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. for hotel guests and day visitors.
