Luna Jaguar Hot Springs – Copan Honduras

As I stop relaxing for a second to evaluate my surroundings, I realize that yes… I am an hour away from civilization… in the middle of a Honduran Jungle… in a hot spring spa.

The Jaguar Luna Hot springs are a self guided, natural spa. Geothermal heated water fills a series of pools to soak away all your stresses. The grounds are very nicely kept, with a variety of treatments and pools. There was several temperatures of pools the higher you went on the property the hotter the water. You could also walk through the circular shaped pedicure pond, where you step on polished stones in alternating hot and cold water.

The whole experience is ridiculously relaxing, I haven’t felt this relaxed since my last Thai Massage. I think my favorite part was the hydro massage, where water rolls off a ledge which you sit under and the stream rushes the tension out of your muscles.

How often do you get a chance to smear on a mud mask and melt into a pool of volcanically heated water? I never take the time to relax when at home, and we have been moving pretty quick on the early part of this trip this is exactly what we needed! Whenever I’m back home from this trip I am making it a resolution to take more time out to relax!

The only minor problem is getting to the falls, like I said, it about an hour outside of Copan on a dirt road. If you like driving through the mountains as much as I do, then you will surely need to relax after the drive. Maybe it was the hot water or the hydro massage, but the ride back to town was much easier and I was not nearly as worried about rolling off the mountain in our off road Tuk-Tuk!

  1. Now THIS looks amazing. Do you know if it’s possible to get some sort of ride there instead of driving? Will be in Copan in November and I’m not going to have a car! I could use one of those hot springs near to home 😉

    • I highly recommend adding Copan to your future travel plans! Getting here was a journey but it was amazing and worth the trip! I too am not a fan of the bugs in jungles, but the spa made up for that!

  3. That looks like a great place. Also with it being so open and natural is amazing. I guess it is a much better experience than any indoor spa you’ll find in a posh hotel.

  4. I had no idea this was there!! I am thinking of going to Copan in October so this is good to know. Looks so relaxing… although being here on Roatan, the thought of sitting in hot water when it’s already so hot out is not nice 🙂

    • It was a great day trip and for only $10 entry fee! We had a great driver who took us there and horseback riding earlier in the morning. Let us know if you want some contact info! It was really relaxing and wasn’t busy at all when we were there! Let us know if you make it there!
