Several top Costa Rica hotels and resorts have recently added outstanding spas that compete on a world stage. These spas offer a variety of innovative spa treatments, ranging from Thai massage to the popular hot stone massage.

The ideal Costa Rica spa vacation does not have to be limited to relaxing at a resort. If you’re looking to combine recreational activities with a renewing spa experience, you can combine spa treatments with adventure and take full advantage of Costa Rica.

You can choose resorts that complement Spa services with activities such as tennis, golf, horseback riding and water sports. You can also pick a Day Spa when traveling and get an individual treatment that could last for as little as an hour, or multiple treatments that may take up to a full day. These spas are usually located in hotels and health clubs.

One of Costa Rica’s most luxurious and rewarded Spas is Tabacón Grand Spa. This five star luxury resort is recognized as a member of ‘The Leading Hotels and The Leading Spas of the World’. Its unique Spa offers the perfect combination of energy of the active Arenal Volcano, the heat of the Hot Springs and the pure air of the surrounding rainforest.
