    After a tiring day of swimming and hiking, it's good to take a dip at the Maquinit Hot Spring to ease tired and aching muscles. You can hire a tricycle to bring you there and wait for you. Price is P300-400.

    Entrance fee is P100 per person.

    Maquinit Hot Springs (& Infinity Pool)

    Maquinit Hot Springs & infinity pool

    Maquinit Hot Springs is nice refreshing stop. The slightly salty, volcanically heated water comes out of the spring around 40C (105F). There are two hot pools adjacent to the spring, both cascade down into a larger pool which might be about 33C.

    On the far end of the large pool, between the mangrove forest, the water flows directly into the sea. You can jump down into this water too and get a therapeutic mix of hot and cold!

    The park is open until 10pm daily. It is highly recommended that you visit in the late afternoon, dusk, or evening. The combined heat of the day, the sun and the springs will overload you system if you visit any earlier.

    Entrance is 100PHP for visitor, 50PHP for resident.
    You can take a tricycle from town for ~150PHP (pay after your return), or it is included at the end of some island tours.

    The new ticket office is located on Nueva Street, near Rizal St and the Catholic Church. Tickets must be bought here before going to the hot springs. Tricycle drivers should know this, but keep them honest about it anyway so they don't try to charge you extra by taking you back and forth multiple times.

    The best hot springs I've ever been to.

    What's unique about the Maquinit Hot Springs is that it's salty. The springs from the mountain is mixed with the seawater and so you get the dual therapeutic effects of saltwater and warmth (40 degrees C). The initial soak was physically difficult, but once you get used to the temperature it's really enjoyable. Then you don't want to leave anymore. :)

    We were told that there used to be only one pool, but a bigger pool has been developed to accommodate more people. This is an excellent way to relax tired muscles at the end the day. Maquinit is accessible by land (tricycle from town is P120) or sea.

    Entrance fee: P100
    Local residents: P50
