History:

fotografia de las cumbres para la pagina de historia dosThis beautiful place was originally developed to produce fresh mushrooms, using the natural vapors from the Zunil geothermic system in the pasteurization process.   

Mushroom production in one year only required thirty days of natural vapors, while the rest of the year the land remained without any use.  Capitalizing on this opportunity, we decided to build sauna baths, and make a proper use of the resources, while improving a long standing tradition in the region. Our sauna services have been well accepted due to the benefits that they provide to our visitors.

We are now pleased to share with you and your family what God and Mother Nature have given us.  Along with our jacuzzi and sauna services we offer: event halls, gym, squash court, hotel, board games and, of course, our renowned restaurant.

We are locate in El Municipio of Zunil surrounded by four volcanoes, Zunil, Santo Tomás and the Beautiful Santa María and Santiaguito, this last one is the most active in the West of Guatemala.
