Blue River Resort & Hot Springs
Discover a “Paradise on Earth”, along the majestic, smoking, volcano, Rincon de la Vieja in northwest Costa Rica, at Blue River Resort & Hot Springs. Only here, on the north side of the park, is a lush rainforest with striking crater views, sparkling blue rivers and “natural mineral green” hot springs. Experience the ultimate combination of relaxation and adventure. Sleep in large cabanas or arrange a 1-day Eco-adventure tour. At the hotel soak in 3 hot springs pools; swim in Rio Azul, a real blue river, and the 2 freshwater pools with a bullet waterslide. Wander the Botanical Gardens with 700 varietals, fish, turtle and caiman lagoons, hummingbird and bird sanctuaries and more; enjoy a natural mud bath and sit in the sauna inside the gardens, between the hot springs and freshwater creeks; rise early for the Butterfly Gardens to watch hundreds of them released at the farm. Indulge in a spa treatment; exercise in the gym; view the many exotic animals, like sloths and toucans; pet miniature horses and donkeys; plus, much more.
Added to all those activities at the resort, are Eco-adventure tours into the spectacular jungle, and most are on site and nearby. Horseback (or be driven) to the spectacular blue river, Penjamo and Grand Waterfalls for dips and nature walks. The Zip Lining and Tarzan Swing follows 10 long lines criss-crossing waterfalls and the blue river. For the adventurous, Water Tube along the Rio Azul, rated by one travel writer as the best in Central America. Try your hand at River Rafting, rated by the tour guides as 2nd best in Costa Rica. The newest Eco-adventure is Dino Park, with 30 life-size moving dinosaurs that have returned to the Costa Rican jungle! Life in this region of Costa Rica is truly rustic and visitors will appreciate visiting a real dairy farm to experience their lifestyle and perhaps, milk a cow.
Just 90 minutes from Liberia International Airport, or about an hour from Liberia, this authentic Costa Rica experience is available only at Blue River Resort & Hot Springs, the perfect blend of creature comfort, adventure and tranquility. See why so many guests return again and again.
