These are pools/hot tubs. Not the natural atmosphere we wanted. Tabacon was way better than Baldi, though still not natural. We heard Ecothermales was best for natural hot springs, or go to the free hot springs (check Google Maps). Baldi was an overpriced tourist trap.

This is a place where the whole family can have fun! There are water slides for yonger children, as well as adrenaline junkies! There are many different hot springs, with different temperatures, so something for everyone! Plan to spend the whole day here.

There are vouchers in hotels that give discounts for day trips that include lunch or dinner. We stayed in an airbnb and went to a nearby hotel and bought our voucher there. Make sure you have enough time to check out every pool. There is...More

We just returned from here. I thought my girls might not like it and we may only stay a couple of hours. 9 hours later we were dragging them out. We got a deal in town from a random guy outside of a massage store....More

Our group went down all the slides and they were very safe, and lots of fun. Just use your general judgement - don't do anything you would not do on a slide back home!
