We been to the Hot springs at the end of the waterfall in Banos. Try to go early morning and on weekdays , on weekends and Holidays not reccommend to go there. The water is composed with different minerals which is very health to do a natural therapy. We enjoyed it!

The Hotsprings at the end of this waterfall Virgen is very nice spa. After a day of outdoor adventures is great to go to this place for a theraphy. Try to go early morning when is not many people, you will enjoy the sunrise as well. Reccommend to include in your vacation in Banos!

While the beauty of the waterfall has not changed, the surroundings are in desperate need of a face lift. There are some mineral water springs on the site too. Many locals come to drink the water and take it home by the gallon, which can be filled right by the source. The water in the catch basin to the right... More

Few minutes walk from the centre of town. Not a massive fall but certainly worth a visit. It supplies water for the baths.

You can see the falls from a lot of places in town. If you're in that part of town swing past for a look. It's a nice falls but there are better ones in the area.

If you've been to some gorgeous hot springs around the world, you probably won't be too impressed. We payed about 3$ to enter (you also need to bring a headcap which local stores en route sell for about .50), and it is essentially a few man-made pools that get filled each day with the Fall waters. The water wasn't extraordinarily... More

No point beating around the bush, this place is horrible. It's the worst hot springs I've been to by quite a significant margin. The changing rooms were filthy, you have to pay to wear a swimming cap, it was so overcrowded that you could barely move in the pools. Worst of all was the pools themselves, there were a couple...

We went the day after a public holiday so maybe this is why it was crowded, but you literally couldn't move in the pools due to the number of people - you were physically touching other people all the time. It was noisy, ugly and dirty plus the pools were either too hot or too cold with no nice hot... More
