Very nice trip. Excellent hike around the area, beautiful waterfalls, I highly recommend it. Mauro, our tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Hot springs were worth visiting, although not the best I've seen; great location, beautiful surroundings.
Guide Erica was very good. Facilities were clean, bus was clean. Meeting spot easy to find. Amount of time spent there just about right...
There is also about a 35 minute hike available should you be interested. Things like mud wrapping, sauna and spa services also on sight/may or may not be included in your tour...
The hotsprings were very relaxing and the Spa itself was very clean and had a good menu to purchase food from a snack pack was provided at the beginning of the tour, and would have been enough to stay full. There are several pools at different temperatures nestled around some beautiful mountains with fantastic views. Truly a relaxation paradise with some additional spa options not covered by the tour if you are interested.
The scenery and views were gorgeous on the way there and we got to see a lot of the countryside.
The stop at the local mini-farm was interesting. I tried the best coffee I have ever had, and got to see and try some of the local food/crops grown on site. The people there were very warm and kind, and a little bit quirky. The views from the top of the building were great, and was definitely worthwhile.
The only drawbacks was the meeting point was listed at a very busy and large intersection, and it took us a bit to find the actual tour stand. Our tour guide was friendly, but did not have the best English. We didn't really learn much about the local countryside and had a hard time understanding. It did not affect our enjoyment of the hotsprings and mini farm, but was enough to rate the trip a 4/5.
A great way to start your vacation to melt away flight stress, or finish your vacation to rest sore muscles from seeing this beautiful country. Highly recommended.
