Try and visit on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday and arrive early (It opens at 7:00AM) so you can really enjoy the warm pools and sauna dome with at least some amount of privacy and calm. My understanding is that Saturday and Sunday are very busy and can be crowded and chaotic. We had a great time on a Friday morning visit and even booked a couple of 30 min. massages. Lunch was delicious! Beautiful grounds.

If you're looking for a refreshing break from San Miguel, La Gruta is well worth the $15CDN entry fee. The pools are nicely maintained, the water is warm and the grounds & facilities are clean. The food is okay, the service is excellent and you can lounge about all day. Try taking a bus there to save pesos. We caught our bus at the bus terminal in SMA. On you way back, walk out to the high way and grab one of the SMA buses heading back to town. It'll only cost you a few pesos -- much cheaper than a taxi.

La Gruta is just 10 minutes drive from San Miguel, autobus from La Station will take you there for 15 pesos. Less than 5 minutes walk from the bus stop and you cannot miss the giant sign. Access is 200 pesos for a wonderful experience. Several pools at different temps and the highlight is the tunnel that will take you to the very warm underground pool. The shower of hot water that you can enjoy there is so cool. Locker available for 50 pesos deposit they will refund when you bring back the key. Everything is sparklng clean and the restaurant has a correct menu (including alcohol) at a very reasonable price. Overall a must in SMA.

Cool place with several pools starting with the hottest through a little tunnel. The water flows down to each successive pool getting a little cooler at each. I would have liked it a little hotter. Good food at a fair price. Cheap beer and margs. Very nice afternoon. We were done after 2 hours, but we also don’t like to lay around all day.
