There are many naturally occurring hot springs around the world, many affiliated with volcanic activity. In Costa Rica, there are hot springs of different temperatures, flow volumes and mineral content that can be found in the regions around the Arenal, Irazu, Miravalles and Rincon de la Vieja Volcanos, and others in the Orosi Valley or near Ciudad Quesada in San Carlos.
Hot springs are considered a natural expression of Earth's inherent energy. Geologically, 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.
Branches of the thermal rivers flow through the gardens or down from the rainforest. Springs captured for cold water consumption for guest use in the resort...: a real Paradise! In the Arenal Volcano region there is the first Hot Springs resort opened to the public, still the top rated, most acclaimed and publicized luxury Hot Springs and Spa resort in Costa Rica.
