Costa Rican Spas Receive Top Marks

October 20, 2006

Costa Rica boasts the best Central American spa and one of the world’s best mineral water spas, according to Luxury SpaFinder Magazine’s 2006 reader’s choice awards.

SpaFinder’s overall reader’s choice for Central America was the Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo, in the country’s northern Pacific region. At the top of the mineral water division was Tabacón Grand Spa and Thermal Resort, in north-central Costa Rica, near Arenal Volcano.

With this year’s award, Tabacón has twice received SpaFinder’s recognition, and will be featured in SpaFinder’s 2007 World Directory.

The resort opened with 42 four-star rooms in 1997, and has steadily expanded to consider itself a five-star spa with more than 100 rooms, 13 spa treatment rooms, a wave pool, a thermal pool and a conference center, according to Tabacón’s Web site, www.tabacon.com.
