Maybe some of you would find it a little bit strange wanting to swim at Maquinit Hot Spring when you already soaked yourself in sweat on an exhausting hike. Being a little cautious, I dipped my toes in first, checking the temperature of the water. It was overly warm but not unpleasantly hot so I slowly slide into the water, gliding my feet across the pebbly floor. As I adjusted to the water temperature, I slowly dipped other parts of my body and before I knew it I was completely covered. Guess what… Surprisingly, I liked it. My skin tingled from the heat as I lay back with closed eyes and listened to the sounds of nature that surrounded me.
Whatever fatigue we gathered on our trek up Mt. Tapyas, was washed away by the therapeutic water. It was easy to relax here. All I did was soak, look at the trees and the tourist, feeling the stones tickles my feet and the warm waters soak into my skin.
