Costa Rica: Tabacon Hot Springs

So the resort we stayed at in Costa Rica had these natural hot springs. Water flowing through these pools heated to piping hot temperatures by the Arenal Volcano.

It was hot. Too hot for me really. I don't even like my baths that hot.

Here's me incognito ducking through the hot springs.

On the second pictures I can see that it was very hot there, Did you spill water on yourself? or is a natural man's juice?
Jorge! is a really your house? :

Amen dude. I'm the same way.

My husband is like that too...he takes luke warm baths.

Jules said...

Hot springs too hot to bathe in? There must be cannibals about waiting for boiled human flesh.

Joan Crawford said...

Natural Man's Juice. Holy crap, it gets better all the time.

The sad thing is that moments after the second picture was taken, a three toed sloth landed on Jorge's head. Thus knocked out, he was then pick-pocketed by a roving gang of Racooters.

Jorge,

I barely recognized you in the second photo! I actually thought it was one of those Howler Monkey's - I was checking for the white nuts! :P

Tena Lynn said...

Jorge, I just found your blog. Why don't you tweet?

I probably wouldn't like hot baths if I lived in Hawaii, but in Canada they're great in the winter (ok, most of the year.) :)

ehi, dude, how are you? i'm hot, but fine...Jacob not visited me, maybe because he's dead ;-)

Well, tell me one thing, if is it possible; is true that are doing the shooting aboard Flight 815?
or is flight 316?
please, say the first or the second.
Thank you.

1. By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.
2. We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.
3. For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion.

Man juice!

Jenea is fucking awesome... God knows what it was in Russian. The lad certainly likes to be first...I'll give him that.

I love hot baths...so I would be crazy about the hot springs..

Malea said...

Seriously? I totally loved them and never wanted to leave. But, to each their own. Glad you had a good time, 'tho.

Ian said...

Jorge, shouldn't you be back at work by now instead of traipsing through exotic jungles? (Don't you get enough of jungles at work?) I know filming on Lost started this week (but I think it's those other dudes at the statue). When do you go back to work?

I hate the heat! I'm originally from California and couldn't take the hot summers. So I moved to a cooler climate. It was so worth it!

Howey said...

Jorge,

Don't you need to be getting to another island soon?

lol...love the blog!

Speaking of heat, I visited Centralia, PA in the US yesterday. This is a town that no longer exists because it had to be evacuated. It's on top of a huge coal vein, and there's been an underground fire burning since 1962! The gov't gave relocation packages to the residents and tore down all the buildings, even cancelled their zipcode. There are 6 stubborn people still living there. My blog has pics of the trip and a link to a 10 sec video I shot of the steam coming out of the ground. Way cool!

Matt Roeser said...

Awesome Jorge!

I'm going to Costa Rica next month and while there, going to film some teaser video for the LOST finale parties I have every year. Have to take advantage of the perfect tropical locale...

To see photos of the parties (from season 2 through 5) and previous teaser video invitations, check out my blog here:

You would probably enjoy a Swedish Sauna. Get baking hot and then go out and roll in the snow. Very good for a sluggish thyroid. Sometimes they throw herby stuff in the hot coals and you can feel the rush thru to your veins. Natural and awesome high.

Christina Bauer said...

Icognito, eh? Because you clearly look like someone else there!

I have a sister living in Costa Rica and when I watch the pics she sends me it looks like paradise. Never been there, buy someday I will.
