Sights

Iza's main plaza is a lovely space filled with trees and lined with colonial buildings, many of which now house cafes and restaurants.

There are a couple of hot-spring complexes, including some undeveloped pools where locals like to go to take a free dip, but recently the waters have cooled somewhat – some residents blame the nearby mine – and are now lukewarm at best. Some of the pools are fenced off and access is prohibited.

Sleeping

There are several budget and midrange accommodations around town. The most comfortable beds, though, are outside of Iza, by the El Batan thermal baths.

Eating

Restaurants in Iza close very early, particularly on weeknights; bring snacks in case you miss out.
