Pozos Termales (Hot Water Springs)These hot water springs, which consist of approximately 5 small pools, are located just off the main road in El Valle. This facility is the only one of its kind in the area,and the warm waters are considered therapeutic. Therapeutic mud facials are available for $2.00.
Petroglyphs (Piedra Pintada)A few minutes from town, in the same direction as the El Macho Waterfall, lies the Petroglyphs, or stone writings. This pre-Columbian petrography couldn't´t be decoded yet. Some locals say it was a map for traders nobody knows how old they are, the local kids will want some change to tell you stories as to what the writings mean, who knows if they are correct, but they are cute.
El Nispero Plant Nursery & ZooThis nursery/zoo provides the best location in El Valle del Anton to witness the famous golden frogs. The Zoo contains numerous animal and plant species.You will see monkeys, birds, iguanas, parrots, etc. There is a well maintained trail that passes through the zoo.
