My partner and I visited the Hot Spring as part of a Town tour organised by our accommodation (Coron Ecolodge). We opted for the tricycle ride to get the full experience and we had an absolutely amazing time. We visited the hot spring after climbing Mt Tapyas in the late afternoon, which was a great idea as we powered up... More

It's the perfect place to go after climbing Mt. Tapyas as the hot spring will be the best therapy for your aching leg muscles. It's just a little far though and the road going there is bumpy and a little dark in the evening. The water is too hot for me at first but then eventually my body got accustomed... More

We stopped by in the evening with our tour company. Long, bumpy ride to get here. We arrived about 7:00 pm and the Hot Springs were packed. Very difficult to spot a place to take a dip. Still worth the trip - maybe early morning when it's not so crowded. You can also purchase drinks there at a minimal price.... More

After Mt. Tapyas, my legs were very shaky. Anthony, our trike driver, told me: you will like the next leg. It was quite a drive, and halfway towards it, the road got rougher. Apparently, the springs are privately-owned, and the property starts where the rough roads lay. My fiancé opted for our town tour be in an early part of... More

Ok, so firstly i am a clean freak! If i wasn't so much of a clean freak i would have given this 5 stars. The water is very warm and the higher you go the hotter it gets. If your going during the hot months go in the evening. The journey to get there is very eventful and bumpy so... More

Its a bit far from town but it was worth the trip to go here. I suggest you go at night or maybe early evening? So that you can see the connection to the ocean and these beautiful relaxing springs. I instantly fell asleep after going to the springs.

Very relaxing after the tiring day hiking to Mt. Tapyas - this is the best place to go. Different in the sense that it is a salt water which is not common for the hot springs. :) We also ate our dinner here which is the best part.

The hot spring is really hot compared to other hot springs I've tried. Very relaxing though that I've got to feel tension ad stress leaving my body while in the water. Best to go to their during late afternoon after a hike to Mount Tapyas.
