We just returned from a short two day trip to a fun water resort and hotel! In the town of Ixquimilpan they have an abundant supply of thermal spring water, and capitalize on it by building water parks using the water.
It is a beautiful town, and Hidalgo is suprisingly green right now. The pictures dont do justice to the mountain views.
And just a short two hours from us, we may have to go back! The internet priced the hotel at 1200 pesos a night.. Since we went on a week night the gave us the first night for 550 pesos and the second night for 405 pesos! For a room with two rooms (each with a queen sized bed and their own balcony) a living room with cable TV (not that anyone needs that when you could go swim!) and wifi, and a jacuzzi bath! And it included admission to their water park (which is usually 80 pesos per day per person).
Highly recommended! Dios Padre Water Park and Hotel in Ixquimilpan , Hidalgo.
Their downtown is very charming, had the most delicious meal at a steakhouse type place. Will look for the name pf the restaurant and post it.
This is a town I would love to show any family and friends that come to visit (depending on time of year and weather of course!)!
