The place has a few pools in different temp. The place is clean. You can bring your own food and drinks. You can hire a locker for your stuff. The price is very cheap 4000 colones. I recommend.

Great value for the price. Simple amenities, favorited by the locals, makes for a great evening. There’re lockers and towels for rent but we brought our own.

We visited this place with our 3 year old. The entry fee was 4000 colones (~8 $) per person. We took our towels but if you don’t you can get them for 2000 colones. There are 7-8 hot pools and lot of tables where you...More
