I just went, in August and although the only overcast day I experienced in two weeks, it was busy. Guess others thought like I did that it wouldn't be crowded. Perhaps earlier in the day would have been better as there are numerous families whose...More

Go early before so many families arrive if you want a quieter, more peaceful time. Book a round trip taxi, about 400 pesos incl. tip; you don't pay until they pick you up and return you to San Miguel. Lovely grounds and a succession of...More

I enjoyed a few hours at this hot spring destination with my family. It was really busy with domestic tourists and lots of families. The pools are decent but it's not a place to luxuriate. However, it was a nice break from all of the...More

This is a nice place to go and hang out for a day, and get out of the city center. When we went a couple of pools were closed, which cramped us into two pools. I also had no idea what time the Hot Springs...More

I came here by myself one day, and spent about 6 hours. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, and there are many amenities: a bar, a restaurant, a store, showers and changing rooms, a locker area. I would have preferred that the lockers were nearer the...More

No, they have a temescal which in this instance is a dome over a room of water around 2' deep at about 100F. No chairs but you can lean against the circular wall. Steamy but not quite "sauna" hot.
