In the hills above Zunil, reached via a steep road which switchbacks through magnificent volcanic scenery, Fuentes Georginas is a spectacular natural spring spa situated on the evergreen slopes of Volcán Pico Zunil. The pools here are surrounded by fresh green ferns, thick moss and lush forest, and to top it all there’s a restaurant (meals US$3–8) with a well-stocked bar. It’s a blissful place to spend a few hours soaking away the chicken bus blues or recovering from a volcano climb in the heavenly steaming pools. Unfortunately the eco-vibe is spoiled by cheesy piped music. Fuentes Georginas has barbecue and picnic areas.
