One of our favorite places in northern Baja is the Guadalupe Canyon. It’s a campground up into the mountains to the west of the dry lake bed of Laguna Salada that has campgrounds built out of stone with their own private hot spring tub in each. It’s amazing. Campsites can hold groups of 4-12 or so and they clean out the stone private hot spring tub before each group arrive. I highly suggest checking it out.
We are heading south through Baja, anyone know of any other hot springs along the way?
Grutas Tolantongo, located in Hidalgo, Mexico.
So this has to be one of the coolest places on the planet. Deep in the state if Hidalgo, Mex., hot springs flow out of the mountainside and form these beautiful waterfalls. Under the falls there is a tunnel and a grotto. The tunnel is about 6 feet in diameter and goes about 100′ into the mountain. Water spews from any crack or crevice and little pools as deep as 5′ form as you go back. The grotto is even more amazing. You enter under the falls and it opens up into a large space with little waterfalls flowing out of the walls that surround. There is one large, heavy waterfall coming out of the ceiling in the center, with a few minor ones out of the walls. All the water that comes out of the walls is hot. Inside the grotto there are more smaller caves you can swim into. All the water from the falls flow into a teal blue river that remains hot as it flows through the valley. You can set up camp right next to the river and have your own little section of hot spring river. Absolutely surreal.
