Charming new, comfortable casita on the edge of the rainforest with natural hot springs in the Costa Rican heartland of rural farms and orchards near Aguas Zarcas and San Carlos (Quesada). Authentic “tranquilo” Costa Rica: clean, comfortable and all the luxuries are natural. Two hours north of San Jose (airport), 45 minutes east of Fortuna and Arenal.
Our hot springs are ancient “deep Earth” sources that bubble up through the rainforest floor, bringing mineral-rich waters that have been in the Earth for at least 10,000 years. Neither volcanic nor acidic, our waters are rich in calcium and magnesium, low in sulfur. Over the centuries, flowing calcium-rich waters have created scenic “tufa” limestone terraces filled with plant fossils and a splendid drip-stone cavern.
