This gorgeous hot springs is 24km north of Copán Ruinas – an hour’s drive through mountains and coffee plantations. The Popol Nah area features pools in the river, where the boiling-hot spring mixes with cool river water. More posh is the Spa Acropolis section offering herbal steam baths, massage stations and more, scattered around the hillside and connected by stone pathways.
The jungle here has been left as undisturbed as possible, and reproduction Maya sculptures dot the landscape. It's an amazing and beautiful spot, worth checking out even if you're not a spa junkie.
