Stayed here two nights. It’s a nice enough place. Room for a couple of vans. Nice overhang as well. Showers work but don’t expect anything great. Water and power which is great (definitely need an extension cord). Beautiful view of arenal if it’s not cloudy.

Got here after dark around 8 but the guard was still present. Parked under the camping shade next to another car and set our tent up. Paid 2000$ to camp and $9000 to enter the springs (per person). Guard let us go in for the last two hours that the thermals where open and let us in the next day without charging us double. Nice people. Wifi is strong in the pools, weak if non existent at the camping site, works okay at the camping bathrooms.

Can confirm below prices still 2000C to camp pp but entrance to hot springs was only 5000C per person. Sunday night was super busy, went back Monday morning and had place to ourselves, much better. They let us back in on the same ‘day pass’ we purchased day before. Quiet nights sleep.

Great spot to camp.
Covered camping (handy in rainy season) showers, electricity, BBQ, toilets, wifi. The lot.
All in good and clean condition!

Still 2000/p. Kids were free.
As it's low season and a weekday, our kids could swim for free as well.

Easy, safe place to camp. We had a big truck camper and even in the rain made it in and out just fine. 2000 per person. Nice view of the volcano to wake up to. Water park seems cheesy, but i won’t complain for a nice worry free place to camp!

The spot is an open field in front of the Therme Los Laureles entrance. It has water, trash cans, shower. We didn’t use the shower but the water seemed to be a moderate temperature. We paid 3,000 colones per person.

We were not going to stay in La Fortuna, but found a great trail at lunchtime with lots of sloths and wanted to go back late afternoon to see more. Drove 10 minutes here to check and liked it so paid 4000 colones for two of us in a campervan. We were given wristbands to show we had paid then we could come and go as we please. Parked undercover, charged all our stuff, cooked and relaxed. Clean toilets and showers, dish washing sink, with soap and sponge, handwash in toilets. No wifi, but we have our own so all good.

Facilities were dirty. There were feces next to the men’s toilet on the floor and the ladies toilet was blocked. Shower heads were missing in both showers and only cold water. Access to the pools is nice but definitely not worth 10.000 Colones per person!

Report Check-In

We went there and ask the price for 2 persons and 2 bikes with our tent and they told us it was 10 000 colones per person with the entrance at the pool. We told them we didn't want to go to the pools and they reply it was the same price !! So just go 2 kilometers after to Hotel Loma Real & Hot Springs where you can stay in a QUIET place and same price for 2 nights!!!

Asked how much per night, they said 10,000pp for camping, includes entrance to pools and hot springs, we did not stay. We asked if we could just stay the night w/o entrance fees and they said no, only with “package”.

You can no longer just camp here you have to pay 10,000 colones per person to camp and it includes hot springs entry for two days. We laughed and left

Open field next to a hotel with hot springs. We were charged 10,000 colones per person to camp for the night which allowed us access to the hot springs that night until 9 pm and also the following day. Field was uneven but we were the only ones there so we were able to find a good spot. Nice bathrooms and wash basin there for campers, very quiet. Beautiful view of the mountain during the day

big grass patch, fairly uneven, toilets, water, wifi and electricity! 2000 and a reduced 4000 entrance for the water park! nice

Still a lovely easy place to camp. 4x4 with rooftop tent and we found a flat spot fairly easily but it was quiet. Facilities still clean and great. Nothing walking distance for food and we did get bitten quite a lot at dusk but then we should have been more sensible with the bug spray!! Excellent view of the volcano.

Great place to camp even if you don’t access the pools. There is WiFi and the facilities are very clean. Not completely leveled but grassy and nice view to the volcano. Price is very cheap for Costa Rica standards. Pet friendly.

Nice camping spot outside of the pool/hot springs area. Not really flat but pretty easy to find a decent spot. Toilet and showers are clean and the pool and hot springs are great to relax! The best thing however was the wonderful view of the volcano!

Nice field to stop. Quite hard to find a flat spot, but managed 2 times.
Commodities are cleaned every day.
Pools are great !

Enjoyed our stay here and especially covered area we parked our van under since it rained a lot. The area with nice sink, showers, toilets also covered and clean.
The hot springs were a blast. Only negative is it’s not really close enough to anything to walk but La Fortuna has everything (at a price—expensive place).
It’s easy to pull into and huge grassy area.

Stayed here for 2 nights, paid the entrance fees for camping and the hot springs once - they give you wristbands which you can show to get in and out. Campsite has plugs, showers, toilets and covered area.

Great volcano views and hot springs are really nice. Close by for National Park. Would highly recommend

Price is still 2000 colones pp and the pool is 4000 colones pp if you are camping.
Facilities are super clean, showers are cold, wifi craps out but when connected is good. Sink to do the dishes, a small bbq and you can plug in to charge your car. The night was very quiet. And you have an amazing view of Arenal. We loved this place :-)

Wonderful place! Big area for camping of any size. This is a water park with wonderful thermal spas. Huge swimming pools with water slide and tons of picnic options! There is a fee of $2,000 colones for camp per person and $6,000 per person for the hot springs and pools, a must!! and Right at the front of the volcano. Just minutes outside of La Fortuna Heading North it will be on your right, Looks like the opening to a resort so follow your coordinates.

Pay for the camping at the entrance to the hot springs area. Good flat area for camping with showers, toilets, and electrical hook up. Also had large sinks to wash your stuff. Got a little busier later, but not bad. Defiantly a drive into town, but there is so much to do in the area.

Great place for camping, or parking a rig. Right outside the gate of the thermal pools compound. Clean bathrooms and showers. Only drawback is that the single power outlet may be a bit far if you are not next to the building. 2,000 Colones per person.
The thermal pools at 4,000 Colones pp were very welcome after spending 2 weeks on the beaches. Our feet are now almost normal. Highly recommended.

what an absolute gem of a spot! the views from this campsite are stunning - right at the base of a huge volcano. there are clean bathrooms with toilets and showers and a wash up station with electricity plug in available. we didn't use the hot springs here but we used the ones across the road which were gorgeous. there is ziplines across the road at the tourist information with hot springs included in the tour - loved it! plenty of information about the campsite and hotsprings on their website too

Nice grassy camping area outside the gates to hot springs. Restrooms with cold showers, sink for dishes, electric (with extension cord). 2000/pp for camping only entrance to hot springs is another 4000/pp but we visited the free hot springs before arriving so we did not enter. Wifi is available but was not working while we were here.

Designated camping area to the left before the gate on grassy area (next to cows on the other side of the fence). It's outside the gate, but we felt very safe (there probably is a security guard at night at the thermen, we didn't see anyone). Stayed 2 nights, wifi could reach our van. Toilets and showers (1 of each, his and hers) are clean (with toilet seat and TP). In the morning Ticos arrived early by bus or car to line up in front of the gate, before the thermen open at 9 pm. Arrivals use the bathrooms after a long drive, but early in the morning the facilities are cleaned. Colones 4.000 for 2 persons + van. We filled up the water tank (through filter) at the fosset in front of the ablutions building. Did not visit the Thermen.
