Afterwards, you may have trouble deciding between lounging by the pool, relaxing in the flowering tropical gardens, or rejuvenating with a soothing selection of self-induced spa treatments at the pampering steam baths, body wraps, mud-wraps, and cold plunge pools.

Two steam and mud vents from an open vein of Rincon de la Vieja Volcano, two natural hot springs and one cold stream running through the property make Blue River Resort a true playground for body rejuvenation and restoration.

Emerald green bubbling hot water infused with minerals springs out to the surface at 140F (60 Celsius) in Blue River Resort's garden flowing into a stream where hot water is filtered and piped into three soaking cement pools.

The cold stream that runs through Blue River Resort is also filtered and piped into two fresh water swimming cold pools available to take break in between the soaks and a bullet water slide to play with the water.

The two steam vents are each topped with two adjoining wooden shacks with shower facilities, making it a natural steam room to cleanse your skin and open up your pores. A mud pod is also available on the same area where you can scrub your whole body in volcanic mud.
