Down the road of San Juan, Siquijor sprouts an oasis for locals and tourist like us to enjoy the natural cold spring to beat the scorching sun in the unwinding road trip tour around the island. Others plunged and soaked in the deep turquoise cold water of the spring. The place is well managed, however they failed to reinforce consistency... More

The spring was enclosed in a very big pool surrounded by trees and benches. The water is cool. The pool is free and open to the public.

It's a free flowing spring in the middle of San Juan's small town. There's a groto, on the hillside. Water came from the big trees, surrounded by the rocks. They have cemented the area to make it look like a swimming pool. When we got there some locals were swimming. Tried to go down, but was hesitant when i saw... More

but do it very early in the morning or else you will be 'bathing' with the locals.....which is an experience in itself. at night it is closed off, but until then, it is a meeting place where there are partiers and drinkers, and somtimes they have a band in the park.

Nice place to visit! Well kept and it is clean. I went by myself, but my awesome tour guide / trike driver / photographer / friend, Kuya Allan captured every moment on my cam and iphone. He's so trustworthy, I even gave him my phone's passcode. :) For tours, please call / text him: 0916-641-9570 - Allan Buctolan

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.
