If you follow my blog you know that I love hot springs ;-) Whenever we have the chance we visit hot springs in Mexico. This seems to be the land of hot springs for hours in either direction of Michoacan. Apparently, there is a lot of underground volcanic activity in this region. That makes a good home for hot springs, a natural relaxing wonder that we all can enjoy!
Rio Caliente is located in Bosque La Primavera outside of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. It might be a 30-minute drive from the city center of Guad. It’s well worth it to escape the city for a day and enjoy one of Mexico’s beautiful natural parks.
These hot springs in Mexico bubble up into a river that runs through Bosque La Primavera. There are some picnic tables nearby and they have stopped up the water in a few spots to allow for a nice warm soak in the river. When we went Brad was having a lot of back pain. He didn’t swim with us even though I thought it would help. I want to visit another time so he can enjoy Rio Caliente with us :-)
The best way to get to Rio Caliente is to read the reviews on TripAdvisor and follow directions… Google Maps does not give very good directions. We also stopped on our way out of town and asked a few locals how to get to the river and the park. They were the ones that told us to turn into this little town that you see below!
