Atotonilco Hot Springs

Puerto Escondido

Horseback riding is the best way to explore the Oaxacan jungle on the way to the Atotonilco hot springs, located in the San José Manialtepec community about 20 minutes from Puerto Escondido.

Beaches aren't the only thing Puerto Escondido has to offer. At the Atotonilco hot springs, you can bathe in the healing waters that flow from a spring. In order to get there, you have to ride through the jungle, fording several branches of a river that traverses the community, as well as fields of fruit trees. On the way you, be sure to pay attention to the myriad bird that energize the expedition with their lively songs.

The final reward for a trek well traveled is a relaxing soak in a variety of thermal pools discovered by the tourism co-op in the region. Each pool is a different depth and temperature. Experts will help you decipher which pool is ideal for any given ailment. After your soak, feel free to rest and relax on hammocks suspended from trees.

The tour ends with a visit to the botanical garden, which was created by the women from this community for the purpose of restoring ancestral knowledge of traditional herbal medicine. As such, you will be pampered with a cup of freshly cut herbal tea, which complements the healing process of the Atotonilco hot springs.
