  • One of a kind place, the closest you can get to thermal pods instead of flying to Turkey but just as beautiful. Every turn you take in this area is another beautiful scene after another. The pods or p...  read more »
  • It is a good choice for vacationing, the recommendation is to go during the week or in low season, although in this latter the risk of rain there is, is worthwhile just to enjoy it a little more without so many visitors. The pools are the best!

  • We did a 5-hour drive from Toluca, if they go with children recommend arriving at the Hotel Paraiso Escondido because this right next to the pools and remain open until 10:00 PM and if adults only will recommend reach Hotel La Gruta since the cave and the cave as well as river is paid both for young children , both within the area of the reserve. Also there are area for camping and there rent tents but to me not that option I like so much. The hotels are very basic without AC and provide a fan even if the weather is nice. The costs are $650 to $850 per night more the fee daily to be within the reserve of approximately $120 pesos per person per day and children do not pay, the cost of the ticket includes visit both the cave and Las Pozas which is great. There is service of restaurants for breakfast, food and dinner and the menu is varied and relatively cheap (some 70-120 pesos by person) though the personal in my very personal opinion need train is in the area of the service since leaves much that wish. To enter "the cave", it is necessary to take a diving lamp, (also her right there in the store sold for $120 pesos) since this dark and if necessary. There are many stairs to access all attractions so go prepared with non-skid PEGA-PEGA sandals. Definitely recommend to arrive between Monday to Thursday and outside jumpers and holiday period since hotels do not take reservations and there are many visitors give them nearby States. I recommend being at least 3-days so that they will know about the place. Overall had a great and would gladly, is definitely a Wonderland that offers my Mexico wanted the world!

  • A very good place to get away and enjoy a weeked. I recently went there and I must say I fell in love with the place. The thermal waters were amazing, and one really does get to connect with nature. I recommend camping over staying in one of the three hotels there, since you really get to have a better experience around a camp fire. I look forward to going back soon.
  • It is a very, very nice place to relax and chill,on the rustic side, the downside is the location, which is far, very far away from any major city. But the journey is a total experience. If you can deal with the extreme road, the views is totally surreal, but if you suffer from vertigo, you'll get dizzi very fast! The people who work there are as nice as can be expected, prices of food, drinks and souvenirs are fair, considering the remote location. If you wanna get a better experience you have to spend more money,but nothing excessive.The pouches they sell that are supposed to be waterproof to protect the cell phones, are a total failure, 3 phones are ruined because those crappy pouches! So dont buy them, is a complete waste of money, overall is a diferent experience that you'll enjoy if you like to soak and relax you senses!
  • Very beautiful. Thermal water very warm. If you visit the Grutas (cave) take a waterproof flashlight so you can explore the cave. You can get one in the gift shop .
  • My mom us from ixmiquilpan hidalgo mexico.!
