Cottonwood Hotsprings
Located 5 miles outside of Buena Vista, these man made pools are a relaxing stop. This is a no frills, more rustic destination. The geothermal, gravity-fed mineral waters springs were used for centuries by the Ute Indians as a spiritual gathering place. Bring a book and your own towel ($20).

Amigos Motor Lodge
A renovated a 50’s motel. It is simple, clean, comfortable and eclectic. The property has a hot tub and fun loungig areas both inside and outside.
Downtown Salida is about a mile away from the motel. Obviously reach it by car, but it’s an easy bike ride down the Monarch Spur trail too (bring your cruiser). Or we used Mountain Taxi  (there is no uber).

Mount Princeton Hot Springs
Located between Buena VIsta and Salida these hot springs are a must! They have pools with a water slide but the best part are the creak side hot springs. You will do need to do a little moving around to find a little pool that is the right temperature for you. Bring your own towel and rates are between $15 and $20 depending on day of week
