Hot Spring Infinity Pools In Mexico Are Going Straight On Our Bucket List
Since we've barely been able to leave the house during lockdown, never mind jet off somewhere exotic, we've been spending a lot of time working on our travel bucket list.
And one place that has quickly made it straight to the top is Las Grutas Tolantongo - a collection of breathtaking hot spring infinity pools in Mexico.
The mesmerising hot springs are located in Mexico's Mezquital Valley and are known as Las Grutas Tolantongo, or the Tolantongo caves.
Although it looks like they're more likely to be an addition to a very luxurious five star hotel, they are actually built into a cliffside in Hidalgo.
Each pool is filled with warm mineral infused water, naturally heated by the volcanic mountains.
Surrounding the pools are a series of caves (known as grottos), epic waterfalls and ziplines as well as a bright turquoise hot spring river - and don't even get us started on those views. Just look at them...
You can also camp alongside the river, and there are three hotels nearby - should you fancy focussing your entire trip around the spring pools (which sounds like a very good idea).

Hotel Paraíso Escondido has rooms starting at £26 per room per night. Meanwhile entrance to the pools is just over £5 per person and children under five go free.
This includes access to all the attractions (the grotto, tunnel, river, pools, hiking and waterfalls) in the park's two areas - the Hidden Paradise and The Grotto.
It's reported, however, that you can't reserve a room at any of the hotels, so you have to get in there early to secure accommodation!
Travelling to Tolantongo is around a three hour journey from Mexico City, or you can take a bus to Ixmiquilpan, and from there, to Tolantongo. Although car is recommended as public transport to the springs can be a little unreliable.
You can find more information about the pools and how to organise your trip here.
