Nestled at the foot of Costa Rica's smoldering Arenal volcano, the five-star services of Tabacón Grand Spa Thermal Resort await you. Escape into the wilderness while indulging in luxury.

Tabacón Grand Spa Thermal Resort, tucked away in northern Costa Rican rainforests, demonstrates that the enjoyment of nature doesn't require "roughing it." In fact, if Tabacón Resort's hot springs prove anything, it's that sometimes nature can be downright pampering.

While there are many activities for adventure-seekers, such as hiking up the active Arenal Volcano, coasting down white-water rapids, and climbing through rainforest sky-treks, Tabacón's Grand Spa facilities are the real draw for those who want slow down, hush hectic minds, and beautify their bodies.

Amid serene decor and furnishings designed by local artisans, guests can indulge in hot stone massages, hydrotherapy, mineral spring baths, and Temazcal, an intense, detoxifying steam bath ritual that dates back to ancient Mesoamerican civilizations. Once you've finished sweating out everything your body doesn't need, you might as well fill it up with something it does, at one of five restaurants and bars.

Tabacón Resort is hidden away in La Fortuna de San Carlos, a village in the heart of the Costa Rican rainforest.

From San José, it's a scenic three-hour drive through the small town of San Ramón de Alajuela, but don't worry, there are plenty of roads to guide you once you approach the volcano. The locals do recommend starting out in the morning to avoid late-afternoon fogs, which can get heavy.
