The cabinas were offered at 10 mil colones per person, a super value as this included the hot spring pool and the cabina with kitchen. Comfortable and clean, the wood cabinas are well situated in...

Termales Recreo Verde has thermal and mud pool, and also a volcanic cave (Death's Cave) that can't be wlked because of the volcanic gas that displaces oxigen. It's in the middle of a rain forest section so its green part complements the thermal attraction
