My first trip to La Gruta over a decade ago was a ho-hum experience, but the owners have steadily improved the property (facilities, landscaping, restaurant) and I now much prefer it to the surrounding hot springs in the San Miguel/Antotonilco area. The tunnel and cavern are spa-like (and hot-hot-hot) and the Mexican fare on the patio is a wonderful way... More

This was great. But you have to know to ask where the tunnel is so you can find the hot Grotto. That's the best part. You can order food. Bring your own towel.

A friend and I went to La Gruta on a Friday morning. It was not too busy at that time of the day although I understand weekends can get very crowded. The pools get progressively warmer and the grotto, which is really beautiful is the hottest. The grounds are lovely and well maintained, change rooms and bathrooms very clean. We... More

My friend brought me here since it was one of her favorites. The pools were clean. There were two to soak in. The best part was the cave....you wade down a long enclosed hall to a big man made dome ( you have to climb up and down a few steps) to get into the dome area. It was very... More

Bring your own towels and suits! We spent most of the day here, enjoying a series of gradually hotter pools. All of the pools were very clean, clear and finished like American pools- if you are hoping for a more rustic experience, this is not quite it- and it is not bathing suit optional. But the cave pool, a domed... More

My 16 yr. old grand daughter and I visited this hot springs during a visit and absolutely loved the experience. Cost is 120 pesos per person. They do not allow food brought inside. However there is good Mexican fare available inside the park at a decent price. Bring your own towel. We flagged down a taxi from central San Miguel... More

We checked out La Gruta after biking, it was lovely. The water was really hot in the one pool and cooler in the others so you weren't left with only one option. It was really beautifully constructed with lots of rock work and landscaping. The pools were clean, there was lots of chairs to relax on. There were a lot... More

We are so glad we decided to visit la Gruta. The baths/pools were clean & relaxed, the cave fun. I had a very good 30 minute massage. The food was decent. All in all a very nice way to unwind in a beautiful park setting.

Good place to soak in warm water swimming pools in the late morning-early afternoon. Went twice in one week!

We went to La Gruta in the afternoon after spending the morning horseback riding. It was a wonderful way to relax after the train ride. The warm water was very soothing for sore muscles. The place was very clean and beautiful. A real treat!
