Relax and unwind in the hot water springs at Fuentes Georginas, which features four separate pools, each differing in temperature. Although it may feel like a tropical forest, the fresh mountain air keeps temperatures cool here. Take a sip of the mineral-rich water, said to possess healing powers, and consider staying overnight at rustic cabins, which come with personal hot tubs fed by the natural springs. The site also includes a shop and restaurant with a bar, which does get exceptionally busy on the weekends. Lockers and towels are available upon arrival. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Zunil holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Fuentes Georginas and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • We went there with a couple of families on a weekday and only used one of the four pools (the first one close to the entrance). The facilities are simple and you are better off with changing into your...  more »
  • Place to avoid the weekend since it is full, however the week if you arrive early it is perfect. The great baths, of the hottest to the warmer. The environment is relaxing

  • It is a pool of thermal water behind the santiaguito volcano, the place is very nice, and seriously if you get disconnected and relax. Restaurant has affordable, and the food is good, but if you want you can bring your food and consume them in areas intended for this purpose. The only downside is that facilities are a little careless, but it is no reason to stop going.

  • My favorite day trip from Xela. The pools were clean and the views were stunning. Just make sure you go on the weekdays, I have heard weekends get really crowded. Btw there were a few good stores and one restaurant here. We didn't try the food. But the ice creams and drinks from the store were good
  • Visited in the weekend and the place was very busy, but I suppose that is to be expected. The setting is pleasant, however the man made pools are pretty small aren't great. Judging by the smell of urine in the changing areas we weren't 100% confident that the waters were all that clean. To be honest it looks better in the pictures than in reality.
  • This is a turistic place located in the municipality of Zunil, Quetzaltenango, the cost is Q30.00 per person plus Q20.00 for parking. The main characteristic of this place is the thermal and medicinal pool, because the water comes from the Zunil Volcano. It is a nice place, especially if you go to the pools at the bottom, however to visit this area in which children are not allowed. To get into this area you need to pay additional Q25.00 quetzales. Exchange rate Q7.50 per Us$1.00
  • Water was very warm; it was a nightmare to get out because of the cold. Beautiful scenery on the way. Try a day when there is no fog, though.
  • The main pool is crowded and loud but the private Jacuzzi (+ Q25) are totally worth the extra price, immersed in nature and quiet.
