The vacation season can be an excellent opportunity to spend time with family. Here we give you some suggestions for some different things to do for better enjoyment. Horseback riding is a good option, allowing you to see the nearby valleys, cliffs and rivers. Several operators offer you half-day tours or you can opt to ride for one day. On a one-day tour, you can camp out, and you even have the chance to go rappelling, suitable for almost all the ages and physical conditions. Or if you want just a little more speed, an ATV tour is a good idea. There are trips of three, four and up to six hours. For family relaxation, the thermal waters are an excellent option. Xote is a good choice if you have small children; this park has slides, aquatic games and large gardens. For adults, we recommend the thermal waters at La Gruta, where you will be able to breathe the healthy steam of the thermal waters under a large dome and enjoy a well-deserved massage from a strong stream of thermal water. In addition, La Gruta has two pools, a restaurant and wide green areas for relaxing.
