Escondido Place Hot Spring; To Guadalajara

Aloha Everyone,

Among many activities J.J. and I engaged in San Miguel de Allende was a day trip to Escondido Place Hot Spring.

A 15 minutes drive by taxi from Centro, the road was relatively well paved except for the final kilometer which was unpacked and dusty. For J.J., taxi rides in México are bit of a torture. The automobiles, whether they are Japanese or Korean imports, are very small. J.J. could hardly squeeze himself in. He tried the seat next to the driver but they are still too small. Imagine someone a lot taller and bigger. I guess they would have to ask for a SUV through Uber.

This hot spring seem to attract well-to-do local families. They either drive their own cars or have drivers. To access the property, the cost is MX$150 (US$8.34) per person. There is no private bath, but rather I saw a swimming pool. The two natural hot springs were muddy with large carps in the water.

Today, we are leaving San Miguel de Allende. The Prima Plus bus ride will take us approximately 4 1/2 hours. Our estimated arrival time in Guadalajara is 6:00 pm.

Aloha -- Cathi
