Food And Drinks

Tabacón’s two restaurants– Ave del Paraíso and Los Tucanes – offer everything from breakfast buffets to fine à la carte dining. Tuck into sopa negra (black bean soup) and ceviche. Or savour a Tabacón speciality: lava steak, cooked to perfection on a volcanic stone at your table. For mid-day snacks and refreshing aperitifs, head to the poolside bar or the Shangri-La Gardens, an award-winning, adults-only hideaway.

Los Tucanes Restaurant

Los Tucanes offers first-class dining in a relaxed setting. Located on the hotel grounds bordered by the rainforest. This welcoming and intimate restaurant serves a tropical breakfast buffet and a la carte dinners. The sounds of water flowing into the thermal mineral spring pool located right next to the restaurant.

Ave del Paraiso Restaurant

Featuring lovely views of the main waterfall and our lush tropical gardens. Ave del Paraiso is located in the thermal resort area. The restaurant is designed to accommodate large group lunches and dinners and also for guests seeking a more informal setting.

Spa

With a philosophy centred around the life-giving properties of its natural springs, the spa at Tabacón takes wellness to leafy new heights. Start with a dip in a thermomineral hot tub before a treatment in your own private bungalow. Its palm-thatched roof and caña brava walls allow you to experience the scents and sounds of the rainforest in complete privacy. Tabacón also offers invigorating yoga in its open-air studio.
