Most people think of a vacation as a chance to just get out of town for a few days and unwind, but sometimes even an adventurous getaway doesn't completely dissolve stress. Our wellness vacations take advantage of one of the most amazing and unique features of Costa Rica - the therapeutic hot springs! A variety of resorts in the country offer spa vacations and multiple hot springs, meaning you're sure to find one that fits perfectly into your idea of a wellness vacation.
Costa Rica’s volcanoes - of which the country has over 60 - are more than just fascinating natural formations and occasionally frightening displays of the strength of nature, they’re also the reason for one of the most amazing perks the country can offer - hot springs. These natural mineral-laden waters have been used for therapeutic reasons for over 200 years. Whether you believe in their mystical healing powers or not, there’s no denying the comfort of soaking in a hot springs!

Romantic or adventurous, day tour or week-long hot springs extravaganza, Costa Rica Experts is here to help you plan the perfect getaway.
Amazing Spa Retreats
The pampering at a spa is by far the best part of a wellness trip to Costa Rica. In a country renowned for healthy lifestyles and natural hot springs, it sometimes seems as if there’s a spa at every hotel! Our Costa Rica Experts delight in discovering the best of the best in our favorite country, and the spas are no exception. The natural and local ingredients that many of these destinations use in their treatments are divine, such as a volcanic mud wrap or a coffee scrub. Organic and all-natural labels are much more than a trend of the modern times in Costa Rica - they’re an inherent part of a country with an amazing dedication to the Pura Vida.

“I highly recommend using CRE for any trip to Costa Rica. I used them to plan a customized 13 day self drive trip to the Pacific side that worked for my budget. The whole process was seamless and we were able to navigate from location to location very easily. The amenities were great and met all expectations.”
“I want to thank you for all your help in planning this trip. It was outstanding! I would definitely refer anyone thinking about travel to Costa Rica. Everything was well organized, the activities were perfect, the resorts were excellent, the domestic flights efficient, the transfers were seamless. We’re already thinking about when we can go back.”
“My family enjoyed every moment of the trip that you planned for us. Everything went smoothly and we experienced all there was to offer, which was a gazillion interactions with water, fauna and flora and lovely people and food and places. One great thing is that we did not bring any electronic devices with us, so nothing got in the way of all that was around us to experience. We will all recommend Costa Rica Experts to others.”
“Wow! We had a magnificent vacation in Costa Rica. Thank you Costa Rica Experts for all of your excellent planning. Everything (really – everything) was planned perfectly. Our drivers were always prompt and courteous. They also liked telling us about their home. The tours that you arranged for us were all very professional. Not only did we learn new things, but we also just had fun with our guides. Again thank you so much for great suggestions and assistance. We’ll be calling you again in the future for another round.”
“We had a great time. Your recommendations, service and follow through were unsurpassed. My wife Karen and I were extremely impressed with your service. Thanks again, this was a trip we will never forget.”
