“Watch out for the monkey!”

Reviewed 28 July 2012

We headed to the Caldera Hot Springs with no information to go off of (our friend had been to other hot springs in the area, but not here.) We had a GREAT time, even though we missed the turn (and there were 2 entrances) so we hiked for about 5-6 hours "out of our way".... But I say that sarcastically because the hike, although tiring and seemingly all uphill, it was a beautiful experience and I dont regret it one bit! There must have been 20 different colors of soil/stine/clay/dirt and lots of wildlife to see and enjoy, and of course, the view when we got to the openings-- the valley is a gorgeous sight! We finally got to the hot springs (After seeing the "back entrance" from the trail) and honestly, we spent most of our time in the river, enjoying the cool rush! (we were incredibly hot and sweaty from the hike in the 90-100 degree heat.) the woman warned us about the monkey; and we found out for ourselves that he isn't afraid of us! So, that's my only "beware," te monkey will try to take your hat, or sunglasses, or camera, or whatever he can grab with his swift hand-like feet! Overall, this was an AMAZING experience and I'd DEFINITLEY recommend it to anyone & everyone!

A bit of a walk from the road. we visited in a thunderstorm! exciting sitting in a hot spring with a flash flood in the river nearby and lightning and thunder directly overhead. an experience not to be forgotten!

I went to the hot springs with a group of people and so had a good time. I did not think they were extra remarkable, but it was fun to go from one hot spring to the next one and then to cool off at the river. Bring some beers put cool in the river!

But that does not mean don't go! It is an experience getting there and then sitting in the open pools, moving a log or two if necessary, but it is clean and about as natural as you can get. The lady there usually takes $2 when you walk past her house and you then stay as long as you like. Your body will feel better after an hour or so in the waters.

It's ok, but if you have seen other Hot Spring with nice set up, like some in Costa Rica...you may be disappointed...go with not to much of expectation....but is still good to see. There is like 4 hot spring, with clean water...like 4 small pool
