  • beautifully located and maintained, many pools to chose from and not that many people when I visited, definitely to be recommended 
  • If you want to relax and unwind for a while are a good place. Not is an attraction cheap the entry costs 15,000 and in time cutback starting from them 14 hrs sale 9,000 by person. They are several pools I recommend 1 since it is one of the more spacious, for my taste the more warm. Left to 30 min approx in san pedro. Not sold nothing by what is recommended to carry water and a snack! Are very nice, beautiful landscapes and good for relax.

  • Natural hot springs great for relaxing. The entrance fee can be a little bit pricey on weekends and in the morning but you won't find as many people as in the afternoon. Great for picnics!
  • Really nice wellness! It's just a joy too lie in the natural pools, really warm and cozy. A bit crowded, but there are many pools, so we could find a spot.
  • Not crowded, worth the money!
  • way overpriced ($18 USD), and for that money you don't even get a lock for their lockers. staff doesn't care about anything. the actual facilities are nice but what a ripoff.
  • Wonderful setting, a landscape that hardly will forget and perhaps not have to navigate all the pools to enjoy the hot springs
