They're a cute couple, Hugo very tall, slim, sandy hair looks like the boy next door and Fabiola, pregnant, sparkling and talks at a million miles an hour. They're great hosts, cooking us tasty local food and showing us to our sleeping quarters for the night - a tiny no-frills metal caravan where we can put our sleeping bags to good use, and a great option compared to other bloated tourist-price accomodation in the area.
But our night's not over yet
The springs themselves are a surprise. They're set in beautiful surroundings - a 20-30 m natural cascade, gentrified pools and change rooms, salsa pumping out at high volume, couples dancing in their swimmers, and macho young men dive-bombing the pools. Note exactly what we were expecting... but we enjoy the experience for several hours before heading home.
If you want a cheap place to stay or some good food around Santa Rosa then try dropping in or calling Hugo at La Estación, Kilometro 2 via Termales, Santa Rosa de Cabal, ph 3113742957. They may let you use the caravan or pitch a tent in their backyard for a small cost.
