Hotel Hacienda Taboada - Hot Springs in Mexico


Many American people lives in Miguel de Allende after retirement, and that is probably why it has sophisticated air that is different from any other cities in Mexico.

There is a hot springs hotel in the suburbs.

San Miguel de Allende

San Miguel de Allende is a colonial city that was developed during the 18th century through the handicraft industry.

Today it is one of the most popular tourist spots especially among women, and at the same time an international city where many retired American people and young people studying art live.

Indoor tub

It is 30 minutes’ drive from the downtown.

Road to Hotel

The hotel is located in the plain far from town.

Old-fashioned but pretty rooms harmonize the streets of San Miguel de Allende.

Guest Room

I would not personally recommend the hotel restaurant.


The food was cold and the taste seemed monotonous.

Bathroom 01

All guestrooms come with a private indoor tub.

The tasteless and odorless water was poured into a closed space without a single window.

Indoor Tub

The water temp is usually tepid around 99 degrees F and does not stay constant.

Outdoor pools


You will find open-air baths when you go out from the terrace.


In the sophisticated garden, there are step-like three small tubs, and plenty amount of water is provided into them.


For a while, I examined the spring water in the top tub, but I felt uneasy about the quality.

I investigated the rectangular pool in the back, and found the discharged water was connected to the small tubs.


Finally, I noticed that the discharged water of this circular pool is provided to the rectangular pool.

In conclusion, you can enjoy the freshest spring water in the boring big pool.

Soaking 01

Indeed, there is not chlorinated and the water temp is moderate around 103 degrees F.

However, if they do not provide new water to each pool, I believe the smallest tub should be the first one.

Why do you think so?
Freshness is the most important for a hot spring enthusiast.
