Amatlan de Canas Semi-Hot Springs
Scenic Warm spring in Nayarit
Amatlan de Canas, Nayarit, Mexico barely qualifies as a hot spring to me, though some would consider it so. The water at Amatlan is 37 degrees Centigrade or 98.6 F. Still it is pretty country at 5,000 feet.
Amatlan de Canas is off the main highway MEX-15 between Tepic, Nayarit and Guadalajara, Jalisco, at Ixtlan del Rio, Nayarit. It's 143 kilometers (90 miles) from Guadalajara to Ixtlan, then then 14 kilometers to Ahuacatlan. There turn south for 33 KM to Amatlan de Canas.
The small hotel, Arena is owned by friendly folks. Los Pavorreales is better-known. Both are relatively inexpensive, with the former about $25 and the later about $45. El Monto with a waterfall and cooler water is nearby.
