The Peaceful Soul of Central America

If marketing experts could draw up an ideal destination, Costa Rica might be it. The ‘rich coast’ has earned its name and stands apart from its Central American neighbors on the cutting edge of so many trends: surfing, farm-to-table restaurants, and sustainable tourism. Developing infrastructure is balanced by green energy such as wind and hydro. One of the world’s most biodiverse countries, with half a million species – from insects to the giant anteaters that devour them – it also protects one-quarter of its wildlands through law.

our LXRY! hotel selection

We have some criteria before we can call a hotel a LXRY! Selection Hotel. We want to be surprised, we need luxury and hospitality at a high level, we love the quality of food and the rooms, we think the location is super important, and….we want to memorize the hotel for a lifetime! So you will not find basic chain hotels that look similar in all countries but truly found local gems that are different and memorable.

Experience The Real Costa Rica

Cooled by an ever-present breeze and framed by a unique dwarf forest, Rio Perdido Hotel & Thermal River is a sanctuary of well-being and the true embodiment of Costa Rica’s legendary PURA VIDA.

You’ll find Rio Perdido in the Guanacaste province, on the western side of the country. Even though the reserve is just an hour’s drive from Liberia, this rediscovered gem was once a sacred spot for the Cabecar tribes; people who recognized and harnessed the magic of the thermal gorge, hundreds of years ago. 

Rio Perdido was designed to be in perfect harmony with its surroundings. Great care has been taken to preserve this one-of-a-kind setting and its precious resources, while simultaneously providing a very comfortable experience for conscious-minded guests.

Spend your days swimming in the abundant, completely natural hot springs, along a mile of a thermal gorge that cuts right through the spectacular, 600-acre reserve with 30 bungalows. 

Witness a seemingly endless variety of exotic flora and fauna throughout 20 plus miles of hiking trails. Enjoy zip-lining, mountain biking, and white water tubing, or if you prefer to relax, lounge by the pool, savor true Costarrican cuisine prepared by local culinary artists, do some yoga on the cliff-side pods or visit the spa, for the region’s best treatments.


Even many Bagaces County residents are unaware of the breathtaking beauty that lies just beyond their doorstep. The reserve offers everything travelers could possibly dream of – from the signature thermal river to hiking, white water tubing, mountain biking, and zip-lining. Those craving a more relaxed experience can visit the spa, soak in one of many hot springs, or enjoy a yoga session on the platform.

Rio Perdido Hotel & Thermal River is nothing short of enchanting.

Costa Rica - arenal


The hot springs of Arenal Springs Hotel are hundred percent natural and rich in mineral salts and ions such as Calcium (CA+2), Magnesium (Mg+2), and Chloride (CL-) as they come from underground sources of the Arenal Volcano. Due to high mineral concentration, while soaking in these waters, your skin is moisturized and refreshed.

The hot springs have been created to give you the feeling that you are in a natural thermal river in the middle of the rainforest. Tropical gardens surround the river to add to the sensation. The floor of the pools is made from limestone which adds to the soothing atmosphere. The light color allows you to see your feet and verify the cleanliness of the waters.

The thermal water is naturally heated by the Arenal Volcano and its underground rivers. The water reaches our thermal pools taking advantage of the force of gravity without the need for pumping or drilling. The minerals naturally found in the water, such as calcium, magnesium, sodium bicarbonate, and chloride contribute to a complete relaxation of mind and body, promote circulation, and help to balance pH levels, liberate free radicals, soften both skin and hair, and promote better sleep. They have also created special features like carefully chosen river rocks to form the bar stools of the wet bar, waterfalls to offer you a relaxing hydro-massage, and a soothing jacuzzi. The pools range in temperature from 34-40°C (93-104° F) with a pH of 6.7.
