cool pool of the weekCool Pool of the week

The cool pool of the week for the last week of February is at the Tabacon Thermal Resort & Spa in Costa Rica. Check out the hotel’s swimming pool filled with thermal spring water and naturally heated by the magma found inside the nearby Arenal Volcano.

In addition to Tabacon’s roughly 20 in-river thermal springs and waterfalls, the main pool offers a tropical backdrop with views of the volcano. The pool also features a swim-up bar that sits under a giant palapa where guests can hear and spot local wildlife roaming the property grounds.

The Arenal Pool Bar offers a wide range of standard cocktails and small bites, including mixed seafood ceviche, Mexican chorizo with chimichurri and fruit smoothies.

The cool pool of the week is filled with natural spring water from the hot springs where temperatures range from 77 to 105 degrees, so it’s not artificially heated. The pool also offers a waterslide and views of the Arenal Volcano that can be spotted on clear, sunny days. There is also an open-air restaurant overlooking the pool area where guests can enjoy lunch or dinner to the sounds of local wildlife.
