Truely a magical place to experience the healing waters of Guanajuato. With new and continuous renovations , the park like setting improves each year. Make sure you bring a small lock to take advantage of Escondidos on-site lockers to store your valuables.

Not exciting but a nice respite from the town. Clean and well arranged with warm shower and water flow from above. Also a lovely pool and picnic area.
