Mundo Hot Springs - Hot Springs in Idaho

This is a hot spring pool for a day trip from Boise, Idaho.

The beautifully landscaped and planted pool area was impressive.

World's Hot Springs

If you're traveling on I-84, Mundo Hot Springs is the place to go for a short trip.

Rural 01

It is about a 1 hour and 50 minute drive from Boise.

Somehow, an Asian-style sign appeared in the countryside.

Rural 02

"Mundo" means "world" in Spanish.

Since it is not a regional name, it must have been named with some intention.

Parking Lot 01

Thermal water from the area has been heating in surrounding homes for over 50 years.

Mundo Hot Springs offers hot springs pools for day use and bistro and lodging options such as RV parks and cabins.

A simple office with no pretense.

It had a bistro kitchen.

Once out of the office, go to the men's and women's changing rooms.

Changing Room 02

The rooms were surprisingly clean.

Free-flowing Hot Tub

Pool Area 02

The pool area seen from in front of the changing rooms.

It was surrounded by a short fence.

The colorful plantings showed that they had been carefully cared for.

One large pool with a gentle slope.

There was a wooden changing room separate from the one just mentioned.

Poolside Changing Room 01

The quaint wooden lockers integrated with the shack are not to be missed.

Great locker!
Too maniacal.
Poolside Changing Room 02

A half-moon-shaped hot tub was connected to the large pool.

Hot Pool 01

The tub, constructed of rocks, concrete, and bricks, was located one step higher than the large pool, and geothermal was poured over it.

Hot Pool 02

The water temp at the water outlet was 129 degrees F.

There was no particular smell, and the texture was soft.

Water Temp 01

Water input was minimal due to the high temperature, but the tub was small enough to maintain good water quality.

Water Outlet 01

It was a beautiful little "world".
