First impressions it seemed like paradise, BUT the warning signs about putting your head under water was too small with no explanation as to why. We spent 2 weeks worried sick that our kids might get incurable meningitis when we found out afterwards that was the reason people shouldn’t jump into hot springs due to the germ being released from the mud. Also, criminals were operating in a gang stealing from tourists whilst they were bathing. Quite frightening as they unscrewed the barrier at the top of the car park so they could drive cars up and down for quick get aways. A real pity. This was Jan. 2006 so I hope it’s improved as it is a lovely place. The skatepark there was good, our boys loved it.
