Balneario Escondido Place
"What a wonderful place to relax and unwind -- especially after walking up and down the hill to Los Balcones and El Charco del Ingenio Botanical Garden! Do not let the looks of the place as you arrive discourage you. Like the buildings and courtyards of San Miguel de Allende, there is plenty of beauty behind what one initially sees.
Escondido Place has two warm, outdoor pools and three connected indoor pools. The indoor pools with their beautiful brick boveda ceilings get progressively hotter. One moves from pool to pool with its sulfur-free water. In the final indoor pool, there are three pipes that have rushing water replenishing the pool. I stood under it, and all of my tension in my neck and shoulders disappeared.
The outdoor pools range from oblong, shallow ones for the kiddies to large round ones. All of the pools are concrete lined. There are nicely manicures grounds, and lots of space for picnicking. Many Mexican families make a whole day out of it. Weekends are very busy. We made the ten minute trip from San Miguel to the hot springs on a Friday morning, and had all of the pools to ourselves for almost an hour. Take a cab for 1,000 Pesos (each way); pay the 800 Peso entrance fee, and have a relaxing, spa-like experience."
"what a great time we had today at the most inexpensive hot tubs on earth. For 8 dollars you enter what looks like a very low budget place with only a dirt road to park on but that is part of the surprise there isn't even a window to pay at this young girl meets you as you enter to take you money she then hands you a towel and wishes you a good day but once inside the place is bigger and better then it looks.
First we jumped into the cold water pools to stretch out then we entered the chambers of hot water. The first 2 pool chambers are about 80-85 degrees then you have to go out and around to the hottest one they have you walk down into the last chamber and its all heaven.
Over 100 degrees you soak till you feel you skin coming off - a must if your in this area! We going back again today!
Don't miss it its a great deal!
