This place is just amazing. The setting is not of this world and the hot springs, mud bath and sauna are an onsen dream came true. How come that Japanese tour operators haven’t discovered it jet ?!?

Located at the foot of Miravalles Volcano, Johnny inherited this part of his father's cattle ranch (could not support cattle, therefore displaying his father's disappointment in Johnny).

Watch your steps but enjoy the view. There are so many hot springs of all sizes along the main trails that you have to really watch where you are stepping. My recommendation is to walk slowly so you may be able to get some pictures...More
