The basics

Baldi Hot Springs offers day packages as well as overnight options at an adjoining resort for guests who want to extend their spa experience. More than 20 naturally heated pools range in temperature from 93 to 152 degrees Fahrenheit (34 to 67 degrees Celsius), getting hotter as the elevation rises. The volcanic minerals in the water are believed to have benefits for the skin and body circulation. Adventure seekers and families with kids can enjoy some splashy thrills with extreme waterslides and cascading waterfalls.

Baldi Hot Springs is a common stop on day trips from San Jose. Combo tours may include a soak in the springs plus a hike along mountain trails or hanging bridges at nearby Arenal Volcano National Park.

Baldi Hot Springs Day Pass with lunch or dinner included
Lunch was the highlight of our experience. The food was excellent. The hot springs was very nice with more pools than we had time. One pool area was very dirty but most of the place was clean and well maintained

Arenal Volcano & Baldi Hot Springs From San José
The hot springs offered a variety of water options, including heat, waterfalls, and slides. Definitely get a massage at the spa. We could see the volcano but it was not really an attraction. The food was very good. The guide was flexible and responsive in meeting our needs.

I loved Baldi. I had enjoy all the Hot Springs, especially the tropical pool. The food was delicious. I believe anybody can say they were in Costa Rica if they didn't visit Baldi.

Arenal Volcano and Hot Springs Day Trip from Guanacaste
Our guide, Freddie, picked us up right on schedule. He was very knowledgable and fun! We stopped along the way for breakfast overlooking Arenal Lake. Then we traversed to Mistic Park for about a 1.5 hour hike through the rainforest and hanging bridges. After which, we went to relax and have lunch at Baldi Hot Springs. My only recommendation is to bring Dramamine as half the trip is narrow, winding roads and we, along with other tourist vehicles, had to pull over for someone who got sick.

Great experience in Costa Rica! We were picked up on time from our hotel which was 4 hrs away from Arenal. The van was very comfortable.The driver and guide were very friendly and professional. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of information about the flora and fauna. The highlight was Baldi hot springs to end the tour.

Baldi Hot Springs Day Pass with lunch or dinner included
Had a lovely time. Started from the back and worked my way down. So much space to grab a spot quietly and enjoy the space. Buffet was basic but decent. Highly recommend the pumpkin bisque. A wonderful spot to end a long day of hiking

Things to know before you go

  • Baldi features two restaurants plus a handful of bars; some prepaid packages include a discount on meals and drinks.

How to get there

Baldi Hot Springs is located just minutes from the town of La Fortuna in Costa Rica’s Alajuela province. It's about a 3-hour drive from San Jose. Despite its proximity to Arenal Volcano, the resort is outside of the designated volcano risk zone, so it’s perfectly safe to visit.

When to get there

The resort is open all year round. Hotter temps and sunnier skies prevail in Costa Rica's dry season, from November to April, while the wet season (May through October) often brings afternoon rainstorms.

Arenal Volcano National Park

A restorative soak in Baldi Hot Springs is the perfect way to end a day exploring the hiking trails, lakes, and jungles of Arenal Volcano National Park. Visitors can get up close to treetop flora and fauna on a series of elevated walkways, or explore volcanic fields and lava tubes from previous eruptions on a guided hike or horseback ride. If you can’t wait to get wet, the park’s La Fortuna Waterfall offers the perfect place to cool off during a daytime trek.
