The pool is very clear, which is not unexpected since the water bubbles up from an underground aquifer likely coming from deep inside the mountains. This water is apparently the water supply for the locals, so not unexpected that our guide told us that swimming is not permitted, and this was reinforced by large signs in English clearly stating that bathing in the pool is not permitted. Unfortunately a lot of tourists seem to think that this does not apply to them because they are 'entitled'. The accents betrayed their country of origin and reinforces that concept of entitlement. Parking is chaotic, but given that the area is being kept as pristine as possible, it is not surprising that little in the way of development has taken place. Usually the conundrum when dealing with popular tourist spots which are popular because of their natural beauty. Making them 'nicer' for tourists often destroys the very reason that the area is popular. The access road at the end by the pool is a narrow dirt road, and with cars parked along the side of the road, we saw cars wanting to leave and cars arriving, not being able to get past each other, so no one was going anywhere.
If you do visit pleas respect the area and desire of the locals not to have the pool used as a bathing spot, it is pristine so keep it that way.More
