Costa Rica Resorts with Lava Pools
Costa Rica is a tropical paradise located in Central America, bordered by Panama, Nicaragua, the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Tourists enjoy its endless beaches, crystal blue sea and exotic wildlife. For nature lovers and tourists seeking adventure, Costa Rica is the perfect destination offering hiking, surfing, rafting, canopying, diving and deepwater sea fishing.

Costa Rica is also home to the Arenal Volcano, another favorite tourist destination, as well as the "creator" of the Tabacon Hot Springs that can be enjoyed at a few hotels and resorts. The Tabacon Hot Springs are natural pools that begin deep in the Arenal Volcano where they are heated to 101 degrees and then flow out to the natural pools of the Tabacon Hot Springs. The lucky tourists who stay at these hotels can enjoy the hot springs on site as a natural and soothing hot tub.
