El Valle Mud Baths Panama

The mountain town of El Valle Panama is a picturesque village nestled in an inactive volcano.  This lovely city offers many natural attractions, from beautiful waterfalls and gorgeous flora to hot springs and thermal mineral pools where you can enjoy the relaxing El Valle mud baths.

We enjoyed a fun and relaxing afternoon at the El Valle mud baths and hot springs. We took the bus to El Valle from Coronado and just walked to the park from the bus stop. It’s a nice flat 15 min. walk past lovely homes.

El Valle Panama Hot Springs is well maintained with clean facilities and a friendly staff. The facility was very clean and picturesque; there were picnic tables if you wanted to bring a lunch and a play area for kids, and bonus, there were hammocks for relaxing in.

What to Expect at the El Valle Mud Baths

The cost was extremely reasonable as well. 3.00 per person plus 2.00 for a tub of mud for your body, we just got 1 tub to share and it was plenty of mud for 2 people. The guide showed us the steps to follow, smear yourself with mud, let it dry, shower off in the warm shower, and then venture into the mineral pool. The minerals in the water turn it a golden, brown color, so the bottom of the pool is not visible.

Good Clean Fun!
The pool is not very large so it could get crowded during the weekend. We visited on a Wednesday so it was fine. The pool is luke-warm and not hot, we heard some guests comment on this but we liked the temperature, who wants to be in very hot water when it’s 80 degrees outside? Not this girl from Minnesota.

The main pool is about 4 feet deep. There’s also a shallow pool just for kids
 After the 45 minutes in the pool we were so relaxed that staying in much longer would have made it hard to take the 45 minute bus trek home without falling asleep! The mud bath was definitely the highlight of the experience! It left our skin refreshed and smooth and it was fun to get dirty for the day. If you want an economical, relaxing way to spend a weekday afternoon the mineral baths are a must do!
