Occasional Traveler

A collection of my thoughts and photos on travel.

Caldera Springs

with 2 comments

November 24, 2009 | After returning from the coffee tour, my parents and I (my sister decided to nap/relax in the roundhouse) went with our taxi driver to Caldera Springs.  There’s no easy way to really get there.  Our taxi driver drove his truck through some pretty rough roads before he pulled over and made the short hike with us to the springs.

If you’re expecting some fancy developed area, you’ll be sorely disappointed.  It’s basically in someone’s (big) backyard and you pay them a couple of bucks a person ($2, I think) to go on their property and access the springs!  I believe there’s a few spots that has the hot springs and the first one we came across was being occupied by a bunch of students, so we went to the next one.

What I found more amusing were the random animals nearby!  See?

So cute!! And some more pictures– first one is the hike there, next is this unused building next to the springs (perhaps it was once for changing?) and finally, the hot springs.

We didn’t end up staying around too long.  The water was comfortably hot but there’s lots of mosquitos!  It also started sprinkling while we were there (that actually felt nice), and then POURED on us on our hike back, haha.   I think this was more fun for me than for my parents.
