Grutas Tolantongo was on our radar since we moved to Mexico City. A collection of hot spring pools built into a cliff and a surreal turquoise river: weekend escapes don’t get better than this. We picked a long weekend in January to explore this natural spa.
Hot Springs National Park is the perfect destination for a relaxing weekend trip. Treat yourself to a spa session in a historic bathhouse, after a rewarding hike through the Arkansas forest. Quench your thirst with craft beers made of thermal water, or sip on a martini in a former gangster hangout. The smallest national park of all has a lot to offer.
