We went on a Monday afternoon, so while there were others enjoying the waters, it wasn't crowded. Of the 2 pools, the less hot of the 2 pools was bigger. Both pools probably have a depth of 3.5 ft.

The only showers are outside next to the less hot pool. They are outdoors and are just for rinsing off (not for soaping up or shapooing) before you take a dip or to cool off between dips. The water is tepid, but feels refreshing vs the pools. The locker rooms have toilets and 3 individual changing stalls and a few small lockers you can use your own lock to store items. Most people just set their things at one of the tables or chairs around the pools. There are no locker room showers to wash off after your pool experience. Make sure to bring your own towels.

You pay the entrance fee at the gift shop. They have snacks, drinks, and knick-knacks

It is a small, nicely landscaped area with two hot springs pools. One is hotter temperature that the other. There is an outdoor shower, for your use, that cools you off after your soak. 15 minute intervals are recommended. The continuous music was very spa like and relaxing. The pools are shaded by canopies, which it a nice feature. Southern Puerto Rican sun can be intense. There are also shaded picnic areas surrounding the pools. The changing rooms were clean and lockers were made available.. We enjoyed our two hour break from travel very much while we rejuvenated our bodies and minds for a bit. Would highly recommend a stop at the Coamo Hot Springs.

Los Banos de Coamo is a small but cozy getaway for a day. You can soak in both the hot baths and the sun. There’s limited snacks and sundries, but that’s expected when the goal is to soak away your worries.

It’s not a good place to bring children because there’s nothing else to do but soak in the 2 hot pools, but it’s ideal respite for Mom and Dad!👍

The place was not like expected in terms of the pools. I thouhgt they were more spacious and more in quantity. There are only 2 pools. They are small. The pool with warm water was dirty. The other pool which has the hot water (110 degrees or more) was very clean and clear but has less space and so hot that we could only be there for 2 minutes. After, maybe an hour, of getting out of there, I began to feel a little headache, I took some pills to alíviate it, but it won’t work, the headache still getting worse, felt like my head was about to explode :(. Later, talking to someone, explained to me that some people could react to the high degrees of the waters making the blood pressure to increase. I am really not visiting again. The place has also an spa for massages, maybe that can be worth it.

I have been wanting to come to this place for quite some time. Many years ago I visited a similar place except it was just merely a concrete bath tub and not much to look at. Fast forward to today and the place now looks like a resort. To gain access you pay the small sum of $3.00. They have two hot spring pools to enjoy. According to the staff there; one pool is at about 75 degrees and the other is at about 100 degrees. We first took a shower then jumped into the 75 degree pool. It was quite pleasant. After soaking for about 10-15 minutes (they recommend you do no more than 15 minutes at a time) we decided to try the hotter pool. At first it is a bit uncomfortable but once you get accustomed it feels really good. Your muscles and joints really feel good. We went in and out for several times. The water, pools and grounds were impeccably kept. It felt like you were in a zen garden. By the way as you were there they play relaxing music which helped produce a great zen vibe.
After relaxing for a while we then visited their concession stand which had great snacks-we opted for the lemonade and fresh fruit. It was delicious. At the concession stand they had bathrooms/changing rooms which were very clean and private. Oh by the way, I highly recommend you sign up for the massage. Where else can you get a massage where it is actually $1 a minute. We decided to get 20 minutes and it was the perfect way to end a wonderfully perfect day. Overall I really enjoyed this place and am glad to see how it has progressed I will definitely be back on my next visit.

About 30 years ago I had stayed at the historic inn, enjoying the large pools there and meeting some good people. The public pool, located kind of behind the Parador (then part of a small government-coordinated chain of interesting small hotels), was little more than a foot bath. I knew the inn had been badly damaged by Hurricane Maria and had not yet been rebuilt, but had seen here at Trip Advisor that the public section had been developed. It was even better than I expected. Two nice pools--one fairly large and warm and the other small and hot. The mineral water is slightly sulfuric, which is fine with me because I know it can do very good things for the skin. Since it was a Monday afternoon, there were people, but it was not crowded. The hurricane did not miss this small oasis, taking out a lot of trees that would have provided welcome shade. Until they grow back, the Aguas Termales have plentiful awnings and umbrellas. Also a small shop with interesting Puerto Rican crafts, coffee and honey, as well as water, juice and snacks. Oh, and since I'm of a "certain age," admission was only $1.00.
