Said to be the second largest in the world, this hot springs lake is a caldron of gray-blue water at a temperature ranging from 180 to 197 degrees Fahrenheit; a full-day rigorous hike with a guide is needed to visit this awesome sight.

We researched the condition of the trail post- Maria, but when our guide forced us to back track several times, we knew we were in for a long, hard 8:40 hour day. Several showers made footing problematic and I fell many times. The temporary ropes...More

Awesome hike, the terrain can be hazardous and the path is not well marked, especially since hurricane Maria. Be sure to go with a local guide for your safety! It is physically challenging but totally worth it!

6 hrs (3 to go & 3 to come back) hike. Intriguing views and a lot of huffing and puffing if you're not fit! The Boiling Lake is very beautiful with different flora and fauna along the way. A hike you can't not take!

Forestry have done a great job restoring the Boiling Lake Trail after Hurricane Maria, which caused many changes. It is still a fabulous hike, tough and physically challenging. The round trip took us 6 hours, involved nearly 1600 ft of ascent and the view from...More
