Natural Mineral "Green"
The Healing Power of Hot Springs:
Costa Rica is renowned for its hot springs and spectacular exotic settings. Blue River Hot Springs has a one-of-kind jewel. The hot springs located on the resort are considered to have unique healing powers. The water is mineral-rich, green and is released from the ground at 60 degrees Celsius (140 degrees Fahrenheit.)
The natural mineral "green" hot springs found bubbling up from the surface at Blue River Resort & Hot Springs have been harnessed to create spectacular pools. Each hot spring pool has varying features and temperatures. In addition, guests can cool off in the fresh-water pool and bullet waterslide.
The surrounding landscape is lush with flowers and rainforest foliage. Panoramic views of the mountains, including the Rincon de la Vieja volcano surround you. Enjoy great food, drinks and an inviting atmosphere at the Tiki Bar & Restaurant.
Around the world, including Costa Rica, hot spring pools utilize the natural water from the ground or heat water using the natural hot rock formations under the ground. However, there are only two to three other locations in Costa Rica found to have a natural water source containing a high natural mineral content (the healing power). Blue River's natural hot springs are high in mineral content, chemical-free and are the cleanest and purest waters in Costa Rica.
