For about 5$, where else can you enjoy hot springs and a historical/archeological site? Very knowledgeable guides, a nice slow-paced afternoon.

I went to Agua Blanca by bike from Puerto Lopez and still continued to the Playa de los Frailes the same day. The place itself has a rich history which the small museum and archaelogical site hardly suggest - definitely worth a tour! The Agua...More

Is great to see the community pulling together to protect the history and culture of the area. We enjoyed the visit and walk to the Sulphur Pool of healing water. Is perfect and cared for by the locals. Wonderful!

I certainly enjoyed the museum tour and the walk to the excavation site and across the river. We didn't go into the sulfur pool or had a massage, however there were birds and farm animals around the trail. I would have preferred to walk the...More

After paying a small entrance fee, a tour guide escorts you through the museum. I'm not a big fan of museums, but it was interesting. The guide then takes you to archeological site where they will be excavating for the next decade. We learned that...More

I must begin by saying my time was limited. I only had a couple of hours and my main interest was in the jungle spring water pools. As for the artifacts and excavations, your complete attention must be given to the guide, who speaks only...More

Well worth a visit as there is not much else to see around Puerto Lopez. Best (read: cheapest) way to get there from PL is by bus. For USD 0.50 any bus drops you at the entrance. It is about a 45 min walk to...More
