There are no such hot springs... there is a pool with hot water but this is a pool complex, really a different concept from what they try to sell. For pools, ok, 4 stars, for Hot Springs, 1 star.

We spent the entire day at Los Laureles and we had an extremely good time there between the pools, the hot stream and the meat we grilled. We also got to see a group of toucans hanging out over our rancho!

This is the place where ticos families go if they want to visit some hot springs. It has a waterpark type of theme. I liked the signs posted around the park asking you not to get romantic. Estoy caliente
