Costa Rica: Rio Negro Hot Springs

Located right next to the Volcan Rincon de la Vieja National Park, the Rio Negro Hot Springs are a series of pools where hot geothermal volcanic mineral-rich water flows along the Rio Negro River. The hot springs are located in a private Hacienda Guachapellin. There are 10 pools in total with varying temperature, as well as mud baths. Several hanging bridges connect both sides of the river. And on the way back we counted 23 nightjar birds just sitting on the road!
