The folks at Ojo Caliente know how to do relaxation. When I want to unwind I go solo or with only 1 friend or husband. This is a quiet place, not a chatty hang out. Get there around 8-9 am and soak in the hot springs, hang out in the garden area, and just chill out. Read and watch the swallows antics. Then, do some mud in the mud area. Sit in the sun, then wash off, do it again under the blue, blue sky. Wander over to the hotel/ restaurant and order, without fail, the enchiladas with jicama slaw. YES! Coleslaw next to chile. Loved it! Then, get the mango, coconut cake that is sitting in some yummy green stuff. Definitely coffee. The chef at this place is top notch and I got lunch for under $20. Hang out in the garden and read. Then, go back to the pools and soak, sit on chairs and hang out. If you talk, WHISPER. They remind you with signs. Sometimes the rain rolls in, they will make you leave the pools. No biggie. Just shop in the gift shop and pay, gladly, exorbitant rates for sage lotion. This way you can enjoy the smell of the place ALL month long. Shower with their yummy shampoos. If you have money, get the massage or get your own pool. Thing is... you don't have to be rich. The whole day cost me $50, lunch included. The lotion being an extra decadence. Worth EVERY cent. In the evening, if you stay, you can sleep over, or just hang out and enjoy the cedar fire. So nice. If you go with more than 2 people, staying is just as cheap as going one day and you get two days for the price of one. I definitely recommend this place to those who have the time to indulge. NOT a place for the fly-by. Stay, relax.
