A hot spring is a spring produced by the emergence of geothermally heated groundwater that rises from the Earth's crust. There are geothermal hot springs in many locations all over the crust of the earth. While some of these springs contain water that is the correct temperature for bathing, others are so hot that immersion can result in injury or death.

These types of hot springs are located throughout Costa Rica at its many volcanos. Some of the most famous areas are in La Fortuna at Volcano Arenal and Rincon de la Vieja in Guanacaste. Hot springs are usually included in combo tours or you can enjoy them for a day pass.
