My family and I took the trip to tolantongo with high expectations from YouTube videos and didn't fail for the most part. First thing to remember is to bring toilet paper because the public restrooms around the park don't have any. We stayed in paraíso...More

You can't fly directly to Tolantongo. We flew into Mexico City and drove up. You could also fly into Queretari and drive over. Use any of the airline/travel sites for an estimate. Prices fluctuate based on demand (day and... More
