Arenal and the north: Blue River Resort and hot springs

Visit Us

Blue River Resort and hot springs

Spread across luscious tropical grounds, the huge cabañas of Blue River Resort are hidden within the rainforest that carpets the foothills of Rincón de la Vieja volcano.

The resort is justifiably proud of the natural hot springs that form its centrepiece: a collection of rejuvenating jade pools of warm, mineral-rich water fed by trickling waterfalls.

Guests can also choose from a host of outdoor activities at extra cost, including treks into the jungle and on the slopes of the nearby volcano; horse riding; tubing along glittering rivers; visiting a butterfly farm and ziplining. The spacious chalet-style cabins have high ceilings and wooden finishes. There is an on-site bar and restaurant that serves simple but generously portioned à la carte meals.
