When staying at Hacienda Guachipelin you should make sure that you have time to visit Rio Negro hot springs. You find this calm and relaxing place just a short drive away from the hotel. A well marked trail leads you down to the five thermal pools. These pools are filled with natural water from the volcanic hot springs. When I went to the springs the first time I didn’t know what to expect and I was surprised when I saw how it’s all set up. You get to enjoy these pools in a beautiful and calm environment. The only sound you hear is the streaming from the river Rio Negro. First you get to three of the pools and then you have to cross a small hanging bridge to reach the other two. All of the pools have different temperatures so you just have to choose what temperature you prefer. The best part about this place is that even though many people visit these hot springs, it’s never crowded.
I prefer to visit the hot springs in the afternoon, it’s a great way to finish an active day of hiking, horse riding or other activities.
