Nice visit, but better avoid weekend

It is nice to visit this place for family. We enjoyed the pool with warm thermal water and it was thrilling to go through kind of tunnel to get hot thermal water. You can... read more

It is nice to visit this place for family. We enjoyed the pool with warm thermal water and it was thrilling to go through kind of tunnel to get hot thermal water. You can order the food and drink at the pool side, which is nice. But only bad thing is, it gets very crowded. So you want to avoid... More

Nice place with gardens and swimming in hot thermal water. Gets VERY crowded though, so go as early as possible and be prepared to share your space. Is clean and nicely arranged.

We were so happy to find the lovely thermal baths and enjoy the day as a family. The people were friendly and they had an excellent first aid center when our son fell and really hurt himself. I must visit if you are in San Miguel de Allende.

First time I went to La Gruta I turned around and went back home,it was a couple days before New Year's Eve 2016. This places was like Disneyland, cars piling out the gate, 8 people descending from them and I thought it was not going to be the relaxing experience I was looking for. I was told they opened at...

We went on a Friday morning at 9 am. The cost is $150 and you can leave and come back with your ticket the same day. Pools with three different temperatures and pool for summer. We left our valuables in the car and put change of clothes in backpacks and stored under a bench. There are lockers for $50. They... More

Really nice facility in a park -like atmosphere. Entrance fee only 150 pesos. There is a nice restaurant with outdoor seating and view of the grounds. Guacamole & chips are great. Nice and chunky avocado!

Did a three hour visit. The resort is attractive and staff members are friendly and attentive. Thermal pools were very pleasant. Mojitos were very good and cheap. $50 US for an excellent one hour couples massage seems hard to beat on value. Highly recommended.

We like coming here very much, the hot springs are just that, hot!! If you are a jacuzzi lover, this place will suit your fancy! The drinks and all commodities are a bit pricey, so don't forget your towel because they ARE expensive and thin as onion skin! A lovely place to go and spend the mid morning or afternoon!

I've been here with my family and it's by far a must see attraction. It is super affordable to anyone and there facility is very large. They have a swimming pool, thermal water caves, restaurant, changing rooms, bathrooms, shower, etc. I've come here various times and never get bored. I recommend trying their guacamole.

Cheap thrills and great hot springs. Drinking margaritas in a big public hot tub. All for $6.00 each, compared to $30 at othe springs
