Tabacon Thermal Resort & Spa – Costa Rica

Costa Rica is a pinnacle for global sustainability as one of the top 5 of countries leading the way in renewable energy. Since 2014 the country’s energy has been coming from 99% renewable sources, with a goal to be the first carbon-neutral nation in the world by 2021. They also have plans to completely eradicate single-use plastics within the same time frame, to be replaced by 100% recyclable or biodegradable alternatives. So, it’s no surprise that in a country with such an aggressive position on environmental conservation that a quality eco-conscious travel option could be found. Spread across 900 acres of lush rainforest near the base of Costa Rica’s Arenal Volcano, you’ll discover the Tabacon Thermal Resort & Spa. This five-star hotel offers an unforgettable stay experience, especially for those looking to minimize their environmental impact. All of water on the property is naturally heated from thermal hot springs, and the resort operates completely carbon neutral. But that’s only half the green experience, with more than 500 species of protected plants and wildlife on site you’ll literally be surrounded by nature. Additionally, through its Tabacon Green initiative, guests can participate in the plant-a-tree program, and rest soundly knowing that all single-use plastics have been eliminated from operations. And if you’re looking to take the eco-luxury up a notch, there’s also an adults-only Shangri-La Gardens complex complete with private cabanas and outdoor spa where guests receive treatments amongst the natural sounds of Costa Rica’s local wildlife.
