Club Rio Outdoor Center
The Club Rio Outdoor Center is built around the Arenal River. It has a restaurant, rock wall, nature and horseback riding trails and a wildlife sanctuary. You don’t need to be a guest at the Springs Resort to enjoy Club Rio and the best way to experience their adventure park is the multi adventure package.
Our partnership gives a $10 Club Rio discount for the multi adventure package which includes lunch, transportation, a 2 day hot spring pass and 2 activities from the following: guided wildlife sanctuary tour, guided nature walk, horseback riding, river tubing, inflatable kayaking and rock wall climb and rappel. You can watch our video on Club Rio and see what it’s like in that post.
Please fill out the form below to make a reservation with the $10 Club Rio discount (no promo code needed). Reservations are mandatory to get the discount.
You will see a large “Thank you for booking your tour, We will get in touch with you shortly” note and an automatic email once the form has gone through. If you don’t, that means the required sections were not filled out. Please make sure to fill out the entire form.

How long can I stay at Club Rio?
If you require transportation, the return shuttle leaves at 6 PM. Pick up time is 9:30 AM – 10:30 AM depending on your hotel.
What is the kayaking and river tubing like?
The kayaking and river tubing go down the same section of the Arenal River and they do the same section twice. The tubing/kayaking section is about 25 minutes and then you will go back and do the same section again.
Is the hot spring pass for 1 or 2 days?
A 2 day hot spring pass is included and you have access to the Los Perdidos hot springs, Las Lagunas and Club Rio hot springs.
So if you want to go back to the Springs Resort and Spa the day after for the hot springs you can, the entrance is free. However they do not provide transportation for the second day so you will need to find your own ride (taxi or drive).
What should I bring/wear?
If you’re doing the kayaking or tubing, please bring your swimsuit, a change of clothes and closed toed shoes that can get wet. Club Rio has lockers, changing rooms, showers and bathrooms and they have water shoes for rent or purchase.
If you’re doing the sanctuary walk, rock wall, horseback ride or nature walk, please wear comfortable clothing and closed toed shoes. For the horseback riding tour, your shoes may be getting a bit wet as you will be crossing rivers.
Also bring sunscreen and mosquito repellent. You can bring an action camera like a GoPro to mount on the helmet, just make sure to bring the adjoining mount piece.
Am I allowed to go to their other restaurants or bars on the Springs Resort and Spa?
Yes! But if you want to get drinks or other food at the Springs Resort and Spa restaurants, it is not included in the package. Only lunch at the Club Rio restaurant is.
Does Club Rio pick up at Airbnbs or vacation rentals?
No, they do not but they will pick you up at the closest hotel or hostel to your vacation rental. In the form, please write the name of the closest hotel for pick up. Some hotels may have an extra charge depending on where they are and we will let you know in the email.
