The Arenal Volcano is a 1,633 meters (5,300 feet) high mountain, which is perfectly conically shaped with a crater of 140 meters. The Arenal is geologically considered a young volcano and the age is estimated to be less than 3,000 years.
In 1968 it had an eruption and destroyed the small town of Tabacon. Due to the eruption three more craters were created on the western flanks but only one of them exists at today's date. With its perfect conical shape it allows breathtaking views of volcanic action in the summit. Almost every night the crater offers a spectacle of lights with its explosive eruptions. Arenal is considered Costa Rica's most active volcano and has been studied by seismologists for many years and although the activity nowadays is less damaging you can still see daily ash columns, underground rumbling, glowing orange lava flows and sudden explosions
There are many naturally occurring hot springs around the world, many affiliated with volcanic activity. But the perfect combination of volume, temperature and mineral content (low sulfur content to prevent strong odors) that is present in Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort is unique in Costa Rica and worldwide. Hot springs are considered a natural expression of Earth's inherent energy. Geologically, Tabacon Resort's thermal natural springs are 97% rain-based and 3% magma-based. Rainwater enters the earth through fissures on the surface and is then heated by magma found in the earth's core. Once heated, the waters rise to surface, taking with them minerals found in the earth's rocky stratus.
Tabacon is COMPLETELY natural. Water flows by gravity throughout the property, forming in-river pools, waterfalls, and cascades and filling in the pools throughout the resort. An eco-friendly and carbon neutral resort, Tabacon places a big emphasis on turning the guest experience a close encounter with nature. These characteristics make the Tabacon Hot Springs the first to open to the public and the best known luxury hot springs resort in Costa Rica.
