One of the unique activities within walking distance of your room is “The Crater”. This one-of-a-kind geothermal spring is hidden within a 55′ tall beehive-shaped limestone rock with waters over 65′ deep. The hole at the top of the dome lets in sunlight and fresh air while the interior stays heated by the mineral water, at a constant range of the mid 90s, for a completely unique and therapeutic soak and swim.
The Crater offers swimming, scuba diving and snorkeling, but you do not have to get wet to have a one-of-a-kind experience. Many guests just enjoy the self-guided tour, which covers the history, geology and archaeology of this remarkable natural phenomenon. You needn’t rappel through the top of the dome to enjoy all of the fun either. A tunnel was bored through the rock wall at ground level, lending easy access to custom-built decks and a soaking area where guests can enjoy the crystal-clear blue mineral water and the warmth of the crater — in or out of the water.
