I was at the Spa Tiki on Wednesday, as part of Jacquie’s 40th birthday celebration, chatting with the girls about various spa treatments. I mentioned that I’d had a certain type of spa service in Costa Rica, and the woman next to me said, as if it were just down the street, “Oh, at Tabacón?”
Why, yes, yes that is where I had that massage. But how did she know? Costa Rica is small in comparison to the United States, but it’s not as though the nation has only one spa.
I was amazed that she’d guessed this, and realized (duh) that she must have been there too. It wasn’t long before we were talking about what an incredible place Costa Rica, and specifically the Tabacón grand spa and thermal resort, is. About how exceptional the hot springs cascading down from the active Arenal Volcano are. About how the flora and fauna are so lush and verdant it looks like the whole scene has been airbrushed. Twice.
