Banos Public Baths May 21, 2014
Banos baths are must go place for anyone that comes to this little city. There are few baths that you can use but Public Baths are good old place to mingle with locals and burn your skin for a bit. Place is very organized with clear order of what you need to do. Buy the ticket, buy the head cover, change, leave your stuff at the lockers, take shower and approach to one of the pools. There are three pools, but only two work at all times. One pool is always cleaned while other are used. Aside of two pools on the top platform, there is one on the bottom floor, but I must warn you that it is VERY hot. You will literally cook… There is trick you can use, jump first in very cold pool or take cold shower and then go to the hot pool. When inside, don’t move!!! If you move you will be TOO HOT. Water in the pools is murky because it goes through volcano... There are cold showers that are part of the waterfall next to the baths.
