Bubbling mud pools: The bubbling mud pools are holes that contain clay mud. These mud pools, which also have sulfured thermal waters, all have different temperatures:176º, 212º and 392º F (80º, 100º and 200ºC). This mud is odorless and can be found in three different colors: gray, brown and yellow. The coloration indicates how deep the pool is: The brown mud indicates a depth of two meters, the gray mud a depth of one meter and the yellow mud indicates the mud is from the surface and is full of sulfur.
You can select the clay in which you want to bath and then obtain it from the bubbling mud pool. Whilst waiting 15 or 20 minutes for the clay to cool you down, you can enjoy one of the greatest marvels in the world. After bathing in this volcanic mud your skin will be left feeling fresh and smooth.

We really enjoyed our trip to the Miravalles Volcano. The hot springs were amazing and would enjoy doing again. Our guide was great and provided a local experience for us. The only negative was not the fault of anyone but mother nature. The waterfalls were not as accessible as we had hoped due to a storm that brought down some trees and caused this problem. We were not able to get in the water as the picture shows.
We toured the forest, saw many waterfalls and walked on a couple suspended walking bridges. Then to the hot springs area and toured an old crater. If you want to do the hot springs or the mud bath bring towels. We finished the day with a great Costa Rican lunch in the restaurant next to the hot spring.
Beautiful scenery a little dangerous along some trails with wet slippery rocks.
I would recommend this adventure
Excellent!! Carlos from Pininos Tours was our guide. He was amazing! He was early to pick us up, very friendly, helpful and made the trip. We took our camera and he volunteered to take pictures of us all along the way.
After picking us up at our hotel, we drove to the Volcano and toured the craters. We then travelled up the mountain to see the most gorgeous waterfalls. The Hanging Bridges were amazing also. After a great rainforest experience, we had lunch at the restaurant on-site that was probably the best food we ate the entire time we were in Costa Rica I would recommend the fish.
After lunch we changed into our bathing suits and enjoyed the mud bath, sauna, and the hot tub.
The entire day 8 am - 4 pm was amazing.. would do it again!
My family had a great time. Our tour guide was very nice and laid back. The van we were picked up in was very clean and the AC was perfect. We traveled with 1 teenager and 1 five year old and they both had a blast. Great trip if you don't want to over exert yourself.
The Volcano was very impressive and our guide Carlos was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. The driver of our van sorry forgot his name also was very helpful and navigated the narrow roads in a very safe manner. Lunch was tremendous and overall this day trip was definetly 5 stars
