About a half-hour south of Neiva, the Rivera Hot Springs make for a good day trip or overnight excursion, especially for families. The natural hot springs have been made into a water park of sorts, with well-designed warm and cool pools, some of which have slides. There is also a spa, and visitors have the opportunity to go horseback riding and hiking as well. Although it is not frequented by tourists much, this place is very popular with locals. The park is reasonably priced, and there is an on-site hotel and restaurant. Termales de Rivera is open in the afternoons during the week and all day on weekends; it is closed on Mondays.
Located just outside the town of Rivera, about 30 kilometers (18.6 mi) south of Neiva.
Easiest if you have a car, as there is plenty of parking at the hot springs. If you can get to Rivera, it's very close.
