Hot Springs | Costa Rica
Our vacation style is usually very active, on the go. But a little R&R can go a long way, so we scouted out a natural hot springs resort. Our inn-keeper recommended a spot the locals frequent, not the über-touristy ones we had seen while driving around, and, boy, was she right. The grounds had tropical flowers and paths overgrown with jungle greens, plus lounge areas, and a dozen or so interconnected pools with water temperatures ranging from lobster-boiling hot to bone-chilling ice cold.
These springs subscribe to an "on your honor" drink system, letting you order up tropical drinks at the bar, then telling them on your way out how many you've had. That's a drink system we can get behind! Another bonus to our relaxation experience was the delicious family-style feast we enjoyed afterward, prepared by the staff and served up on an outdoor patio.
