Hi everyone. So this may be a stupid question, but I'll be heading out to Costa Rica next week and will be spending a few days at Rincon de la Vieja. I heard that the trail to hike up to the crater of the volcano is closed, so we will be doing the Sendero Las Pailas, Cataratas Escondidas, and Catarata La Cangreja hikes instead. Along the way we will encounter hot springs and mud baths (we are actually really looking forward to encountering both these things)... so my question is 1) is it safe to get in any/all of the hot springs or mud baths we see? 2) how will we know if the water is too hot without actually putting a finger in and risk burning ourselves?
Any advice/information anyone can provide would be great. Thanks!
