Small little place with a couple of warm pools to relax in. Cover yourself in mud/clay (it costs a little extra to get the full body mud but is well worth it), bake in the sun for 20 mins or so and then wash it...More

We had a blast and only wish we would’ve planned the day better and realized suits would’ve made it all the better! Fun, reasonably priced, short excursion while in El Valle and the mud facial was great!

Reading reviews made me a little concerned but the face mask was great and the hot spas were not dirty. They appear dirty but the water is clean. Worth trying.

Basic but lovely experience and skin feels better for it. Would never have known this was here except for the local guide telling us about it. Highly recommend a visit. Costs hardly anything at all.

Hot springs which aren't actually hot. Water seemed pretty dirty due the big amount of visitors (not only the clay and other vulcanic material). You get to put vulcanic clay only for your face (website said also body) and it surely does good for the...More

Don't expect anything like you'll get in North America or Europe. You're not in North America or Europe. Keep that in mind from the get-go. It was kind of fun to put volcanic mud on your face. However the pools are not very warm whatsoever....More

Not a fan of this attraction. $5 per is ok until you get in and see the state of the facilities. Old and tired. The only area that felt clean was the changing rooms/bathrooms. Big travel tip: DO NOT wear a swim suit you want...More
