Infinity pools are always a great choice and you can’t easily find one we don’t like. But one spot in Mexico’s Mezquital Valley puts even the most luxurious hotel swimming holes to shame with its majesticness.
Las Grutas Tolantongo, or the Tolantongo caves, is a collection of hot spring pools built into a cliff in Hidalgo. The definition of a bucket list destination, they sit three to four hours northeast of Mexico City in a picturesque canyon
The pools are filled with warm, naturally mineral-infused water that’s heated by the surrounding volcanic mountains. For the ones who are craving some adventure, there are also caves and a tunnel to explore, a hot spring river to swim in, and a kid-friendly pool with a waterslide.
If you’re so hypnotized by this magical spot, it’d be better to plan your entire vacation around it. Expedia claims you can save up to $570 by booking one of its package deals, which include flights and a stay at a nearby hotel. If you want to stay within the resort area, go for the Paraíso Escondido hotel. Otherwise, have your pick of options at the base of the valley.
