Unwind and forget the stress of traveling at Spa Thermal Park and Riverbank Recreational and Scenic Reserve, a lush park filled with thermal pools ranging from warm to hot temperatures. Kids will enjoy running around the extensive area, which provides a completely natural setting. Since the pools are natural, consider wearing sandals or water shoes to avoid stepping on sharp rocks. There are no onsite facilities, so remember to bring your own drinking water. Also, keep your valuables close and lock your cars, as theft is somewhat common at this attraction.
