Although it was a national holiday the day we went to the springs, we were alone in the place. They are very well kept and clean. To get there you need to go down a very steep road and it is totally worth paying 60 pesos per person to get you up and down it. It was very relaxing.

The springs are amazing! The close proximity to Creel and beautiful drive, if I lived there I would go weekly. The drive down the canyon requires a 4 wheel drive and there are several memorials along the way that stand as testaments of the dangers of drinking and driving. We were there for several hours because of the beauty and... More

We were seriously disappointed by this trip. The setting is stunning and the steep walk down enjoyable - took us an hour. When we arrived the place was heaving with people (it was a Sunday), and there was rubbish and grunge everywhere. The changing room was tiny, dank and stank of urine, with filthy water all over the floor. The... More

If you plan to visit the hot springs please walk your way down and up. Don't get on any type of vehicle. We had a terrible accident. Thank god we made it out alive. This was like 500 meters from getting to the hot springs.

There were no ATVs working when we went and the steep hike in and out were worth it. While they have made the pools, they have done it tastefully. You are sitting in this outrageous canyon listening to the river down below and enjoying the warm spring waters. A little slice of heaven.

This is an AMAZING hot springs....clear, clean springs flow from the mountainside into several cement pools which are vented to drain off the water so the waters are always flowing.... The pools are varied in temperature....and depth. The setting is breath-taking! The 2 1/2 kilometer path leading down to the hot springs is paved and sometimes there is a four-wheeler... More

Most of the tours from Creel will offer to go to Recowata hot springs as a drive there, park-walk-down-have a dip-walk-back up. I was very lucky to find a guide who offered the same tour but with motor quad! The road down is actually cobbled and emergency vehicles go down so just be careful and going down with a quad...

The hot springs are at the bottom of a canyon that is just beautiful, with a river flowing through and sheer walls with very cool rock formations.It is a very steep descent on a cobbled narrow road about 8 kilometers long, or you can take an even steeper path, but beware the knees! They don't allow anyone to drive down,... More

It was an extreme ride down, luckily our driver was good. The water wasn't super hot. But with the warm weather, it was just right.

We were a team of 16 people on an expedition in the copper canyon. It was very hard to reach the hot springs because we trekked from a weird direction -- it involved crossing a river and accidentally putting my hand in a cactus!! When we reached the hot springs we had been trekking for about 6 hours, so as... More
