Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Do NOT take a Tuk Tuk to get there. You definitely need a car to make the journey. We booked through the spa but it was disappointing. Understand that you're in Honduras where anything can happen on the roads. In our case, the journey to the spa took 90 mins. We were NOT given more time at Luna Jaguar, which was a huge disappointment. The spa is missing out on making money. The spa opens at 2. They should shuttle people from Copan Ruinas at 1 p.m. and then allow people longer time - people will likely be more inclined to use the spa services and eat on site if they're not on such a time crunch. But what do I know. I'm just an American tourist.

We we are able to arrange an afternoon outing to the Lunar Jaguar Hot Springs through the Via Via Restaurant and their partner, Go Travel in Copan, which my fear of a daunting journey through the scenic mountains. So much easier to rely on their expertise. They arranged transportation, massage appointments, and proved to be a great blessing as the honest staff found and even delivered a favorite heirloom ring that one of our party had lost in the van

The hot springs date back to the Mayan Rulers and provide a wonderful relaxing attraction that is family friendly.

Such a unique getaway with friends. I was doing some work in Copan Ruinas and friends and I undecided a trip to the hot springs would be fun. It’s a drive to get there but the views are spectacular. As other reviews have noted, the pools are set in descending order with the coolest water near the bottom. As you work your way up, the water gets warmer. The top pool is pretty hot but very relaxing when gotten used to. One of the pools goes back into a grotto. So amazing!! Very quaint and relaxing. It wasn’t crowded and had a very relaxing vibe.

You need to travel for over an hour on very bumpy dirt roads from Copán Ruinas. Difficult for a 2 wheel drive cars.
Stop at the Macaw bird sanctuary on the way!!!
You have to pay 15$ per person: you get a little tour by friendly locals, and you can spend time going from tepid to warm small pools to sample the water among beautiful foliage and trees.
Surprisingly there were no mosquitoes!
Low key, relaxing and safe place to experience volcanic natural spa.
Tasty local coffee to sample in the cafeteria.
The gardens are well looked after, everywhere is clean, with toilets and changing rooms.

It was great to have a Hot Springs experience in Central America. I would recommend that you take aqua shoes if, like me, your feet are a bit delicate.

I do have to warn you that some of the water is REALLY hot.

‘Well, obviously,” I hear you thinking. “They are called HOT springs.”

Let me explain. Another tour member was taking a photo of me and said the light would better in the next pool over. I slipped over the brick partition dividing that pool from the next and stuck my feet into the next pool. I pulled them out in a hurry though because the water was scalding hot. I have to thank my lucky stars ✨ that I only put my feet in and could retract them hastily. Had I slipped in up to my waist I would have taken longer to get out and may have suffered serious burns. All the pools of water have steam rising off them, even the ones with safe water temperatures. While I knew that the pools would be different temperatures I assumed none of them would be a burning temperature. I obviously should have tested the water first, lesson learned.

It is set out in a natural setting (you know, like a fake natural setting) not like an aquatic centre that just has standard swimming pools that are regulated with the temperature advertised. The place seems to stay open past dark, the lighting is limited so this adds a further challenge.

I’m not saying don’t go, I’m just saying test the water first (like I didn’t!).

This place absolutely blew us away in its scope and imaginative design. We've been to many commercial hot springs, which generally consist of a couple of ho-hum large pools sitting out in the open. But Luna Jaguar consists of multiple small pools of differing temperatures, plus optional mud scrubs, all tucked away on a meandering path you reach via a rickety suspension bridge over a clear stream. In the evening, there are colored lights that play off the rising steam--it's absolutely magical. It's an investment of time and energy to get there from Copan Ruinas, but totally worth it.

There was a shortage of English speaking attendants to explain understandably the protocols and things that we were signing on entering. There are many pools, at various temperatures, to try here. The grounds are beautifully floralled and you can get massages and mud wraps, I believe.

Really nice place to relax, specially if going on small groups since some of the pools are for about 3-5 people at time

When you arrive and begin your walk to the springs it’s like walking into a ancient time zone. The waters are healing and refreshing. There is camping spaces available for those who want to camp out.
