Said to be the second largest in the world, this hot springs lake is a caldron of gray-blue water at a temperature ranging from 180 to 197 degrees Fahrenheit; a full-day rigorous hike with a guide is needed to visit this awesome sight.

Thoroughly enjoyed the Boiling Lake tour, until the rain caught up with me and the strenuousness of the hike makes you wish your legs were not yours anymore. The scenery is beautiful, though during the rainy season it can be dangerous to climb this. We...More

6 hrs (3 to go & 3 to come back) hike. Intriguing views and a lot of huffing and puffing if you're not fit! The Boiling Lake is very beautiful with different flora and fauna along the way. A hike you can't not take!

Forestry have done a great job restoring the Boiling Lake Trail after Hurricane Maria, which caused many changes. It is still a fabulous hike, tough and physically challenging. The round trip took us 6 hours, involved nearly 1600 ft of ascent and the view from...More

We took a hike of the Boiling Lake with Elvis Tours. Elvis was a fantastic guide and kept our feet completely dry (many rivers to cross) through 3/4 of the hike. Unfortunately, well beyond his control, the skies opened up for the last quarter. The...More

I read some of the reviews and agree with them all! I am reasonably fit, exercising regularly and walking lots. But I found this demanding, mentally and physically. Our guides were experienced and knew their stuff. One of them has completed this hike around 50+...More
