Very nice overnight stay
Aug 2019
We came to the place when it was already dark and I thought for a while that we are not able to find it. However, we found it finally and the owner let us to overnight under the roof at the terrace of a small house. We took a bath already in the night including the bath in the river where you can go from warm to cold water. In the morning, we enjoyed this once again being there almost alone. We admired also beautiful butterflies. It is not for tourists who expect standard tourist places with a lot of services and sterility but I rate it very high.

Interesting spot

A series of small springs on the way to the river. Slightly underwhelming but I appreciated the nature.

Seemed clean to me. But my travel buddy made me aware that there are local families in the area that use these hot springs commonly to wash all things.

Not worth the hike in
Mar 2019 • Couples
If like us you get the bus to Caldera it is then a 50 minute hike on a rough road and then a trail and not well signed. When you do arrive you pay a small fee to enter a farm field where there is a small thermal pool. You can also walk on to the river where in places the water is hot. The meagre change facility looked daunting. For us the long hot hike did not yield much in the way of results, although perhaps more enterprising owners could change that. Last bus back seems to be at 4pm, so we had to rush back to avoid getting stuck there.

Nice and relaxing experience!
Nov 2018 • Couples
After reading the reviews this place really was a positive surprise! We took a public bus from Boquete (2 dollars) which left us to a junction from where it was a nice 45-60 minute walk to the springs. The pools were really natural, the water was clear and there was a lovely river to cool down after the hot pools. Getting back to Boquete was a bit tricky since the timetable we checked from Mamallena hostel’s wall before leaving was not accurate and the 1:15 bus never came. After waiting 45 minutes we ended up taking a David-bound bus to the David-Boquete road and from there, after waiting a bit more, another bus to Boquete. If only there were a bit more frequent bus service this place would have earned 5 stars from us!

Better swim in the river ...
Aug 2018 • Friends
The location is nice. There is a river that you can access without paying the $2 fee.

The thermal springs consist of three small pools. The two of them seem to be completely artificial as the water is guided there by pipes. The upper one might be "more natural" and you can see actual gas bubbles springing from the ground.

The water is warm enough and looked OK at a distance. However, if you look closely you will notice at least some tiny red worms hovering throughout the volume of the water. Although I have no evidence they are harmful, they looked a bit disturbing...

We opted to swim in the river which is actually a better idea especially if the day is warm/sunny.

Adventure to find it on foot, nice place to visit
Sep 2017 • Solo
I was staying in Boquete and the hotel owner told me about the hot springs in Caldera village. There is a minibus that is going daily to Caldera on each hour as I remember and it stops on the road where you come out and follow the path to the hot springs. Which I didn't know that the walk will be so long but nature around was so magic that I didn't notice that 40 min of a walk is the distance from the bus stop. Anyhow there was no way back so I was persistent. There are some signs showing the way so it was not so difficult. The hot springs are located on the isolated farmers land so you pay a small fee at his house to enter. The first impression was so many animals in the farmer's yard, even a monkey pet, amazing view. The hot springs are small and natural, the water is around 40 degrees. Besides a few pools you can go down to the river full of big stones and as well enjoy the warm water heated by the volcano. If coming by bus be careful that the last one is going back to Boquette at 6pm and stops at the same place where dropped you on the main road. I recommend visiting this place, it's a real adventure to reach on foot.

A bit of civilization in a wild area!
Mar 2018 • Friends
This was the hot springs that you can drive to. The spring is a boulder lined pool and sits apart from a dwelling that offers showers and changing rooms. On this date, the water was lukewarm and it was pretty busy as it was Sunday. There is a $5 admission and cold drinks may be purchased as well. Signs are up along the gravel road to get you there from off the main Caldera road. Go just past the soccer field and you will see the Hot Springs sign on your right. The road takes you through cattle ranches and across the aquaduct. There is a spot on this road near where the river bends that offers what looks to be a really grand swimming hole, although we didn't stop to investigate. Keep watch for horses, cattle and other traffic. The drive is about 30-45 minutes off of the paved road and it can be pretty challenging to drive.
