12 km outside San Miguel in beautiful nature. The place has many hot pools and is good if you want to relax for 1/2 or whole day. You do not go here for the food for sure. Nice surroundings and nice pools. It can be...More

We live in San Miguel de Allende and feel very fortunate that we are not that far way from La Gruta thermal waters. Whenever we can we make a special trip and stay the whole day. We can get delicous food and snacks that adds...More

Our guidebook suggested we get there early to avoid the huge crowds. In January, this wasn't necessary. That meant we were absolutely freezing getting in and out of the water! I might give this place a better review if all the pools had been open....More

From our centrally located hotel we took Uber to this place for under 120 pesos plus tip. We got the phone contact from the driver but ended up ordering another Uber back (our cell phone had reception). Current entrance fees are 200 pesos per person....More

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

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