    Traveling While Black

    If you’re adventuresome and want to save some money, you can take a bus to arrive at las grutas. For the sake of maximum relaxation and flexibility, I would recommend renting a car and arriving first thing in the morning to take full advantage. If you stay the night, you will need to buy two days of tickets (for the first day and for the checkout day) which came as a surprise to us. Accommodations are bare-bones, so bring some cards or board games. There will be no TV or wifi in your room. There are new accommodations being built right outside of the park that do provide all of these amenities, if you feel you want to drive the 15 minutes uphill at the end of the day.
    You’ll have hot spring pools, las grutas, the river below, and poolside relaxation to enjoy over your stay. I would recommend going to the grutas first as it is more adventurous and chilling at the other activities as your time winds down. If you do want to be more adventurous, There are also some walking trails through the property where you can get some amazing views of the valley and forest surrounding. There are also ziplines that you can try for an adrenaline boost. All that said, the grutas and the hot springs will remain the main reason for choosing this destination.

    I hope this helps all

    So the place is about a hour and half out from Mexico City, I suggest flying into Mexico City airport if your going. When driving to the location on your gps it will show two or three routes and saying one of these routes may not be a paved road. Take the one that goes straight and not the one goes straight then left back into the straight road .. I’m telling u from experience that is not the paved road lol.

    Now there will be signs along the way once your about an hour out and you will see a lot of people selling water float items and such also the pollo (chicken) is good I stopped and picked up a few on the way thinking it wasn’t much to choose from of food at the location. I was wrong, there are two restaurants on the location and they serve breakfast as well. I think we paid 796 pesos per night maybe cheaper I’m sorry I don’t remember the cost exactly and food is really cheap u can get a full days meal for about $7-10 usd if even that much. There is also a bar type food place below towards the pools also (note this is if your staying on site)

    Now when you arrive you will be at the top of the mountain which there is a city and other hotels just in case you aren’t able to get a rsvp at this one due to the fact it’s first come first serve .. myself and my girlfriend we arrived around 2pm which they were checking out guest around that time so we really got lucky cause there was about 5 keys left after us. I suggest getting there at 830am put your name on the list and go down to the river front part and just relax until they tell you your time to check in.. keep in mind though if u do leave the check in area, when they are calling names you have to be there or they will skip you. Now if u arrive after your name is called I’m not sure if you go back to the bottom of the list but I would assume so.

    Now the place isn’t located half way down the mountiain you will go down a hill that swivels back and forth and once you get to the entrance you either go left which is to the river front and that’s a camp site so if you prefer you can do that. Or go right and they’ll direct you to the hotel. Now there is a entry fee which again I don’t remember the cost but it wasn’t no more then $10 usd if I’m correct

    Now the rooms are pretty well kept for what i was expecting they have one and two bedroom cottages and one two and three set up hotel style with balconies and having room and bathroom. There is also camping allowed on site but i wouldn’t suggest it as it rained over night the night we stayed and I felt bad for everyone who hadn’t camped as they tried to hide under roofed areas to save there stuff.

    There are the public infinity pools and then the amazon style which is a little bit more to the left when facing the office way and is open 8am -6pm if I’m correct on closing time

    Again the food and drinks on site is amazing I think I answered majority of the questions the parking is safe they have staff on site .. the location is pretty safe but like any place u visit I always saybbe cautious of your surroundings even though they have a security staff. There is much more to see around the area outside the resort

    They have a Instagram if you have any questions and you can find it on YouTube
