I was reluctant to spend half a day during my vacation at La Gruta, but are very happy we went. Our kids (7 and 10 years old) loved it! The food and drinks were reasonably priced considering they have a captive audience. Make sure to...More

The place was pretty dirty. Staff a bit short with us and not very helpful at all. Booked a massage and the room we were put in was freezing cold. The water in pools is only luke warm at best. Would not go back

We hit San Miquel at a particularly cold time, so it was nice to get away to the Gruta and soak in the hot water. Well organized, with food service and clean facilities

Love this place as its family style and heated for cold winter days. Several pools to cool off in if you get too hot. Kind of pricey but worth the bus ride if you chose from San Miguel.

Externally nice place for weekend chill out. They have several pools and “cave” with hot waterfall. Highly enjoyable.

I took a taxi to get to La Gruta. It cost $180 + $20 tip (pesos). I forgot my towel and they do NOT rent towels. You can buy a thin towel for $100 pesos or a large fluffy towel for $200. On Friday it...More

Small, meticulously clean hot springs, clean changing rooms. Not a place to swim but a wonderful place to spend the day and relax and have a massage or beautiful lunch. Franceso was my waiter, and he was as professional a waiter as I've ever had....More

It is a nice place, kind of crowded and lack of standards but if you like the adventure I highly recommend you this one because is one of the moat complete thermal water parks in the area.

It isn't a long walk, probably less than 5 minutes; however, it is down hill and would be difficult with certain disabilities.
