Relax in the steaming hot springs of Hamat Gader Park. Built by the 10th Roman legion, the bathing complex dates back to the second century CE. The park is rich with ancient ruins of the original bathing complex, along with remnants of a 1,500-year-old synagogue and Roman theater. The hot springs themselves have a high concentration of sulphur, believed to provide a therapeutic effect for a variety of ailments and pains. Be sure to walk down to the small zoo area, which features both an alligator farm and petting zoo.

    Once the guest tents at Hamat Gader. Five families with children in the age range 11 years. A site about empowering family experience. So ... ... This is not!!!!! Feeling reached a refugee camp in Syria borders Turkey. Promote us security guards who take care that your vacation will be much harder to implement. Such as: took the electric hotplate. Family not lighting a fire on Saturday, the army Saturday morning jachnun is supposed to do. Took all the products brought and an electric kettle. So as I wrote from camp. The run-down and not a patient. Considering the price without the discount ranges from 950 to 750 shekels. The bathrooms don't deserve to the entrance, not to mention at all. The camps are divided into an area free of synthetic grass and turf. So a little tip from me if you've already at the time of booking it is important to note that tent will be in the turf rather than sabotage. A small shallow pool so if built on it. The crocodile farm disappointment. The place remains as it has been from the 80 so there is nothing new under the Sun. In summary .... It's full potential right but not utilized.

Where to stay in Tiberias

Offering both affordable dorm beds and the most luxurious hotels in northern Israel, the resort town of Tiberias accommodates a wide range of tourists. The lakeshore and the main street are the top location for many inexpensive hotels; come with a reservation, especially during July and August, when domestic tourists take over. A good number of convenient mid-range hotels lie up on the hill on Route 77, providing great views of the Sea of Galilee.
