Fuentes Georginas

Situated high in the hills above Zunil, is one of Guatemala’s finest hot spring resorts, Fuentes Georginas. It makes a popular day trip for both locals and tourists from Quetzaltenango or Zunil. One of the country’s more affordable resorts, about $2.75, the springs are more temperate than they used to be but the temperature is still quite hot near the pool's rocky source. Hurricanes and consequent landslides have damaged the pools and the general area in recent years. However, the pools have now been fully refurbished and are in good condition.

Thanks to its location at the base of dormant volcano Cerro Quemado, there are plenty of pleasant hiking trails for visitors to take. You can hire a guide for $10 at the restaurant and explore the tropical plants and surrounding scenery. Hikes can take anywhere between 3-5 hours one way so consider this if you want to hike and enjoy the springs in the same day.

The accommodation at Fuentes Georginas is quite basic and not frequently used but there is a great on-site restaurant that serves local cuisine and tasty cocktails. There are also a few sheltered picnic areas where you can barbeque your own food, but you will have to bring fuel and your own supplies to use this facility.



Other neighborhoods in Quetzaltenango : San Francisco El Alto, Xela, Zona 3 Quetzaltenango, Las Cumbres, Zunil, San Andrés Xecul, Totonicapán, El Palmar Viejo, Laguna Chicabal and Cantel.
