Club Rio Springs

We highly recommend you visit the Hot Springs at Club Rio Adventure Center. They are truly some of the most beautiful spring pools in the world, and most of them border the river, allowing for amazingly scenic views of the flora and fauna of the river canyon. It is a spiritual event just walking through the towering rainforest by the river’s edge and finding flowing hot spring pools around every turn in the trail. You don’t want to miss the crystal blue water of our famous Ojo del Agua (Eye of the Water) spring where you can feel the hot mineral water and bicarbonate bubbles flowing through your toes from the depths of the earth beneath you.
About Our Hot Mineral Springs
Our Hot Mineral Water is captured from natural springs near the river and are pumped up 420 feet (130 meters) to our pools. Each night at closing the pools are drained, cleaned and refilled starting at 6:00 AM. During the hours of operation new hot water continually flows into the system. The water is also circulated through a filtration system in these pools to eliminate some of the precipitated minerals and foreign contaminants.
