Yeah its a public, open air swimming pool in the middle of the town with a park on the side and a public beach meters away from it. It's actually a pretty idea to make a spring into a pool. Accordingly it was once a source of potable water of the folks in the town. But when modern times came... More

This was our first stop in our Siquijor Island Tour. I first thought it was weird that there were children swimming in the lagoon right in the middle of the town. But then I thought it was cool because the water comes naturally from the mountain. There was nothing much here except the grotto and the church on top which... More

Visited the spring park just to have a look and a few photos but had no interest in swimming. The water felt quite cool and as others have said it is right in the middle of the town activities. I think it is a great place for the local kids to swim and families to enjoy the park area for... More

We swam, and swam. The water is clean, it's running and very safe . I biked to the Spring park , parked my bike . Went for a swim that lasted more than an hour. You can forget time as you just float and look at the trees above you.

We were there on rainy days so the water was cloudy and overflowing the manmade pool. I am just anxious how I can enjoy bathing in the waters if all passers including people and vehicles look my way. There was also a temporary flea market surrounding the pool which made matters worse.

Right in the centre of San Juan. Beautiful crisp water. Perfect for a midday cool down. There is also a Café here for food drinks and Picnic tables.

It was a commercialized park open to the public. You can hardly appreciate the beauty of nature here. We just stayed here for a minute or two.

The Capilay Spring Park, located in SanJuan, consists of pools with three chambers: the first one is the “springs” pool, the second one is the “swimming” pool and the last one is the “laundry” pool or the river which is found by the road. Huge trees with massive leaves also line up the place, protecting the visitors from the intense... More
