Baldi Hot Springs Resort in La Fortuna, Costa Rica

The east side of Volcán Arenal has been spared the rivers of molten rock and explosions that the west side has, earning the name La Fortuna, The Fortunate.

We considered ourselves to be among the fortunate, as we headed that way to lounge in the heated water that springs forth from the mountain at the Baldi Hot Springs Resort.

Our visions of a hot pond in the middle of the rainforest was blown out of the water as soon as we arrived.

Baldi has twenty-five separate spring-fed pools, each getting warmer as they rise up the mountain/ volcanoside.

Each pool has a unique personality with waterfalls, bridges and even full-service bars right in the naturally-heated water.

There are waterslides for kids and thrill seekers, and a full service spa for the more sublime, but we were more than content to simply soak our cares away.

Dinner at Baldi Hot Springs Resort in La Fortuna, Costa Rica

After several tranquil hours making our way down from one pool to the next, we enjoyed a spread of Italian and local dishes at the resort’s buffet at the base of Arenal.

Perhaps the most relaxed dinner we’ve ever enjoyed!
