Choose from shallow or deep warm pools, or circulate between the hot and cold water for the best relaxation experience.

  • Such an amazing experience. Went with a group on a study abroad trip to Ecuador. We all had such an enjoyable time there. Some of us did the hot springs and some did the massages. Both were great options and so relaxing! The trails around here are also great, and some of the easier "hiking" we did in Ecuador. Beautiful location and amazing views.
  • We went in on a tour on February/11/2019 everything was fine until I go to take a shower to realize there is no hot water they said the power is out. Our tour had to leave by 4pm the tour guide didn't mind waiting so by 4pm still the power is out so we had no choice but to either shower with cold water or just dry our selves without shower. When we left by 4:20pm the power was back on. I was not offered any discount. I understand the power happened to be out but your hotel should have a generator.
