A little history
Approximately 80 years ago in Santa Rosa de Cabal, when it was still part of the old Caldas municipality, the Arbeláez Mejía family acquired a land in a part of the mountain destined for livestock and timber trees.
Upon entering the land, they found warm water births at the top of the mountain, which they enjoyed as part of their family activities. However, as time passed by, they realized that people liked to visit these hot waters.
The family conducted studies and discovered they were hot springs. Since then, approximately 70 years ago they opened the first tourist destination of the Coffee Region, The Hot Springs of Santa Rosa de Cabal.
A warm experience
In addition to enjoying the thermal water pools, this wonderful place has a thermal spa in which they offer therapies with elements taken directly from the births of the thermal waters such as mud, clays and algae.
These treatments are specialized for relaxation, resting and some specific symptoms such as muscle pain and stress, among others.
On the other hand, they provide a thermal expedition in which visitors can walk through the mountains of the coffee cultural landscape, to the births of thermal water and see how these waters are born at high temperatures and all the impact they have on the landscape due to its mineral composition.
On these walks they also explain the history of the whole place and the municipality.
Among the activities to enjoy, you can sign on a coffee tour in traditional farms where tourists get to know the complete process of coffee, from planting to harvest. It includes the coffee tasting, bird watching and a visit to “Los Nevados (The snowcapped) National Park”.
