Baños de San Vincente Ecuador
Nov 2019 • Couples
Ecuador is always a pleasure. Salinas is beautiful sleepy little sea side town. Baños de San Vincente is located about 30 miles away. Great mud baths, natural hot spring and great messages.

A rustic, but fun day
Feb 2020 • Couples
This was an excellent albeit rustic experience. Walk in the mud with care as the area is uneven and slippery. One shower was salt water, massage was enjoyable. We recommend

Bargain for spa treatments
Dec 2019
Went with friends and you start off in mineral warm salt water for about 20 minutes. Then quick shower and over to the mud pool to get mud smeared all over. Sit around and let it dry for another 20 minutes or so and then wash it all off. Takes awhile! But then a good steam for 15 min or so, followed by 1/2 hour massage of your choice. We did the aloevera massage, and though slippery, they get every muscle and skin massaged. Shower off and end day with a fresh coconut chilled juice. Or in our case, a cerveza! $16 per person! Cheap at twice the price!!

Healing Gem
Oct 2018
This place is a hidden jewel if you are looking to heal body, mind and spirit. The price cannot be beat, However one must focus on the benefits you will receive AND block out the unmaintained ambiance. Monica, one of the massage therapists was very nice and accommodating since i could not take advantage of mud pond, she brought mud to apply on my aching knees. The employees do their best to assist one´s needs and although the ambiance sadly leaves a lot to be desired, it is very therapeutic and worth a visit.

Good old fashioned spa
Jul 2018 • Couples
Ancient spa. No frills place large soaking tubs aa well as hot mud baths and available massages with hot mud or aloe oil. Get your mud massage then bake in the sun and shower off. It is wonderful for the skin. Old world feel mostly locals there. Very cheap to get into or receive a massage.

Not my cup of tea
Mar 2018 • Couples
The complex is old, very old there has been little to no maintenance and no upkeep of the grounds. Many buildings are not used and falling down. The mud pit, yea I did it but would not repeat. The vapor room is small and nasty. In the mineral water tub you have to hang on a cross board as I could not reach the bottom. Go in the morning if you want a massage time as they book up. Not a repeat for me but some seemed to have a better time. Best to hire a driver as the bus let's you out on the side of the road several miles from the complex.

Excellent thermal water
Dec 2016
Have been the same for last, at least, 70 years, with very few maintenance done. But, diving in the hot water for fifteen to twenty minutes acts as the best anti-stress medicine; when I walked out I just wanted to sleep. There are also some volcano mud that it is supposed to be excellent for the skin.

To come back.
Feb 2016 • Family
Since I was a child my parents have taken me to this magic place, from always there was the called “healing mud”. The first time they forced me to enter but then I loved it. It didn’t have any ugly smell.
It’s a tourist resort with swimming pools, courts and thermal pools; as my parents have told me that complex is set on a volcano from which all it’s natural minerals come.
The entrance fee per person goes from $2 - $4. Families can enter with food, there is parking, inside handmade tents and massage service. My parents always go for the massages, they always say “ they leave me like a new person”.
I think it needs remodeling in General, but everything was clean so it’s a place to always go back and relax in a natural way

Baños Termales de San Vicente
Dec 2016 • Family
I went to visit the The thermal bath complex of San Vicente with my friends, this place is located in the province of Santa Elena.
The main attraction is a volcano of natural water with a temperature of 42 degrees Celsius, more a volcanic crater of mud, the people can get this mud on the skin because it contains some minerals of high therapeutic benefit, but this I do not like. Also there are swimming pools which are deep, the water is rare this is due to minerals. In the small population there are sites that provide accommodation and the chance to taste the mouth-watering meals typical of the area such as: fish and seafood. I like was the massage.
The drawback is that buses do not enter to the community because the road from the main highway is located in deterioration and has potholes., I called the attention to the neglect of the entities calls to provide the basic services that it deserves inside of the community, this being a tourist place.

SAN VICENTE THERMAL BATHS
Oct 2016 • Family
With my family, we headed for the thermal baths. After a few taxi rides we arrived at San Vicente.If you are looking for fancy and fussy with lots of ambiance, this is not the place for you. This is a basic thermal bath that has the addition of the mud pool and massages and a steam room. It was very inexpensive.
A $2 entrance fee gave you the option to use any of the basic facilities which include the thermal bath, swimming pool, mud pool and showers, bathrooms and changing areas. They also have massages available at $4 for either the volcanic mud or the aloe. They also offer a steam bath called vapor for $3 which had several wonderful herbs including rosemary and eucalyptus. What a fun time. When we first got there we changed, showered and then took the first dip in the warm, mineral filled bubbling pool. It was very difficult getting out — so soothing and relaxing!
