Rio Chollin, La Fortuna de San Carlos

Hot Spring · Nature / Park
Maneuver around jagged rocks to find a spot at Rio Chollin. Because the hot springs are often crowded with tourists and locals (even in the late evening), be ready to hike a little upstream if you prefer a more peaceful, secluded spot. For those that want to swim at night, bring a flashlight, because there are no light sources here. If you plan to stay awhile, bring along drinks and snacks. Wear comfortable shoes, as the jagged rocks can be painful to walk on. Our La Fortuna de San Carlos visit planning website makes visiting Rio Chollin and other La Fortuna de San Carlos attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
