This is a great place you can do on the same day as visiting the ruins. It's good value at $22 Inc transport . They have various different pools, jacuzzis, waterfalls, mud baths etc. I would recommend this

This was a nice spring, but nothing amazing. It's not cheap to get there and it's a long, uncomfortable drive. Not sure i'd recommend this.

I really enjoyed the hot springs ar Copan, they are the best in Honduras. The environment is very relaxing and I likes that they had different types of pools with different temperatures.

In spite it takes an hour to drive from Coban de Ruinas to the site it is truly worthwhile. The ingenuity with which the natural baths are established with the hot boiling water coming from atop and running through terraces to lower the temperature and...More

Don't be fooled! The area you get dropped off at has just regular pools, but that's not it! Across a rope bridge is where you get to the private pools all along the incline of the hill. They are varying degrees of heat, from almost...More

The place is nicely hidden in the jungle. If you go in the morning, there won’t be a lot of people and you can enjoy a variety of pools and water temperatures in a amazingly relaxing atmosphere. One thing you should avoid though: the massages...More
