Owner description: This hot spring makes for relaxing baths.

This is a little garden of eden with hot water. The pools are extremely clean, the gardens surrounding the pools are beautiful and tranquil. The only odd this is that there must be a quarry nearby as there was blasting that occurred at about 2 minutes intervals...but this quirkyness seemed perfectly at home here. No one seemed to mind it. The cost of a cab was about $8. There are massage services available that are pretty reasonable, although the 50 minute reflexology was only 30 minutes and we could not get an explanation. The first pool has warm water, the second pool is the warmest. Food is also available. $90mx to get in.

These natural springs serve as a perfect place for a picnic among locals. Don't miss the water tunnel that takes you to small waterfall then relax in the shade over a pina colada amid families on their weekend. An authentic, happy experience.

We love La Gruta because it is an easy destination with non-swimming kids. Decent restaurant and libations a plenty, you will not be disappointed. Just try to visit on a weekday or there won't be lounge chairs for you!

I enjoyed the hot springs with my husband and another couple we were traveling with. The brutal was our first experience on a hot spring cave and it was great. There were two pools and one was quieter than the other with several families with children. Met nice travelers there from the States and the owner of Leisurely Horseback Riding who were very nice. They recommended the horseback riding that was an excellent experience.

Pools are filled with fresh water daily. There are always 3 of them filled and they range in temperature from warm to a little warmer to hot inside the "Gruta" or cave. There are great cafes where one can have a delicious breakfast or lunch for around 50 pesos (or right now about $4.50) Friendly waiters (who can help you with your Spanish) come to your lounge chair at the pool or one can go to a sit down cafe or eat on tables with umbrellas on the expansive green lawn. It is a green delight of trees, flowers and grass.
