    Worth a visit from San Miguel!
    We took a taxi there from San Miguel de Allende, for 200 pesos. The place was clean and reasonably well organized. They took credit card for payment (500 pesos for 2 of us). Lockers are free to use (you give a 50 peso deposit which you get back when you return the key). Changing rooms & showers available. Although a few of the pools were not open, several were and had varying temperatures — although I wish one was even hotter. Don’t miss the swim-through tunnel which takes you to a dark final cave-like pool — unique! Our lunch at the cafe was very good and reasonably priced. If you are thinking of going to Atotonilco — it is very close by (a few minutes by car, or about 15 min walk). Suggest bringing water shoes or sandals as the walkways can be slippery.

    Fun place for kids but bring cash
    We went with a large group to La Gruta. It is a fun place to soak for a few hours in the the pool. We were there for about 3 and a half hours and that was plenty of time to soak and eat lunch. The kids in our group especially had a good time. I would just caution to bring cash. We had a bunch of people who wanted flipflops and other swim stuff they forgot to pack and the gift shop there only takes cash and there is not ATM. So we were all trying to scrounge for cash. One of the restaurants takes credit but the other places for drinks also need cash so we were all a little stressed about running out. Also the lunch was not quite as good as some of the reviews suggested. This could be because we were limited by the cash issue to one of the menus. But I would go in the morning, order snacks and eat a late lunch back in town.

    Soak Your Tired Head at La Gruta
    I have been to La Gruta many times, try like 100 or more visits over the span of 5 years. It is one of my most favorite places upon our planet, soaking in the wonderful water for a price that is almost free. You can stay all day. Amazing value. Very easy to get to, a cheap bus ride taking you there. Is there any other spa like it anywhere? No.

    Relaxing soak
    A lovely thermal spa with a selection of activities including massages. It has 3 pools, the hottest has a cave with a tunnel from the pool. The largest has a water shoot. There are cafes, restaurants as well. Lovely setting. It opens at 8 am get there early as by the time I left at noon, it was getting crowded. Cost 300 pesos and a 50 pesos locker deposit. Bring your own towel.

La Gruta is a relaxing place to zen out for the day. Don't forget to bring your towel. All four of us got massages that was a treat. Be sure to book right away as she gets booked up quickly. She asks for a good faith deposit. I wish La Gruta had a few more caves to explore. We had lunch and drinks the food was good and the price was right. Our margaritas were extremely sweet, I noticed this trend of making margaritas with sodas in Mexico. I wish our margaritas were handmade and we would have ordered more. There is so much room on the property it would have been nice to have a BBQ option 😋 even if you had to prepay.

My family and I have been coming to las Grutas since 2007. It has a wholesome charm that is undeniably Mexican - it is not slick like a US spa or amusement park - but hence the magic. I just returned last week and found it more charming and cleaner than ever, with sweet Mexican families and a scattering of tourists enjoying the healing waters, the trees and gardens, even a few friendly resident kitties, and each other. An afternoon spent here is a total reset - and a delight we always take home with us.

Get there early to have the place almost to yourself. Also, the thermal waters are best enjoyed, in my opinion, in the cool early morning hours. Since it is not season, not all the pools were open. The main thermal was a treat and we enjoyed a great sauna in the interior pool. It was also a great place to meet people. Food is available and we had a so-so breakfast and cappuccino. If you plan to spend the day, grab lounger in the sun, asap, when you arrive. The massage/spa opened around 10ish and there was already a line when we went to make an appointment.

While these are not bad hot springs, with decent grounds and amenities to hang around, I was appalled at the lack of Covid restrictions they have. They let so many people in, there’s no social distance, people are sneezing, coughing, blowing nose with hands in the pools—it was totally gross. Even I got there early on a Wednesday and it was packed! Kids are loud, people in general are loud, it’s not exactly a peaceful way to spend part of your day!

The waters were amazing. We arrived when they opened. It was chilly outside which made the water all the more soothing. The tunnel and cave area were like a sauna and the waterfall was so therapeutic. We stayed the day. After getting out of te water, I spent most of my time in a lounge enjoying quiet time to myself and journaling.

Was excited to go to la gruta and we had planned to have lunch there. However, we stayed a couple of hours and felt that that was enough. Lots of locals and kids and was a little crowded. It was xmas day and expected it to be quiet. Had a nice time, but it was just ok.
