When we arrived at the Cold Spring we were hounded by several women with menus who wouldn't stop until we've ordered food. So we did order lunch before getting in the water, which was unbelievably cold! We were shivering in the water already! The lunch was delicious and worth the price. The highlight is definitely the cold water though!

Went there for lunch and we were ambushed by women with menus before going out of our vehicle. They were trying to outsell the other ladies. It was total chaos and confusing. We were not ready for it so we just ordered stuff fast. We were disappointed with their chicken dishes that they prided so much. We did however enjoy... More

If you like to go for a cold cold swim without chlorine then this is it. Pure water fresh from the ground will make you want to drink while swimming.

We all know the feeling of putting once hands inside an ice bucket. Well, imagine that same shivering feeling but this time, it's your whole body that you are dipping! Here's the good (or bad) news, if you're swimming in the Sto Nino Cold Spring, you wouldn't be needing any of your imagination! You'll be singing "Frozen" all of a... More

We had the place to ourselves because it was already past 5pm when we arrived. They built cottages around the pool. It was quiet and clean and peaceful and of course COLD! Outside the pool resort, there are people you can ask to cook food for you (for a fee, of course).

No crowds, but a bit off the common track, takes a while to get there. Buy a couple of bukos a the entrance and enjoy the water.

Sto. Nino spring is at the foot of the mountain. It's really cold thus, the name suggests. The pool has division for the adults and kids. Swimmers used inflated tire interiors for their floaters. There are huts for rents around the pool and they can grill and eat there. One observation that really awed me from the time I arrived.... More

Since the water gushing is all natural, expect the water to be slightly cold, but not enough for you to shiver! Its just nice to soothe your feeling of warmth during summer time! :) Visited july 2012

Food is not a problem, right outside the spring are food stalls and vendors that will offer you kipping and grilled fish for a fee. Some might say that the facilities is... More

As you enter this pristine paradise first you'll ask yourself, where the heck did the cold water come from. I mean unlike other "springs", usually there is a river or a brook that comes somewhere. And when you plunge into the freezing water, you'll realize that the cold spring water is sprouting from the sandy bottom. I love the presentation... More
