On Hwy 9, 15 minutes west of town, you'll find this ageing mid-level hot-springs resort. Water is mineral rich, if not steaming, and funneled into concrete pools. Midweek it’s mostly deserted, but it pulls a big local crowd on weekends. Any Managua-bound bus from Boaco (or Juigalpa) will drop you here. A taxi from Boaco runs about US$8.
