The Easter holiday must have lit a fire under the men who do the building here at the Nuevo Ixtlan Aguas Termales. Just two weeks earlier, there were piles of rocks and sand; now there are 5 new pools to splash in and wooden doors on the banos!
The holiday vacationers had found their way to the hot springs the day I took my friends there, and in true Mexican fashion no one seemed to mind the several dozen extra people scattered about the area. It was quite a change from the one or two car loads we were used to.
One thing I didn’t mention in my previous article is that there is a sense of privacy here as the pools complement the natural setting that encompasses this site. Several of the man-made rock and concrete pools are interlocking, yet separate, and some of the pools appear to cascade from one to the next, but each one has its own hot water feed. There are also various types of flowering bushes and plants that help divide areas and allow each pool to have its own seating space nearby.
