Marcos' Hot Spring: Public Hot Spring in Sta. Lourdes Puerto Princesa Palawan Philippines

Although we've had hot spring baths before, we Travel Tripsters, have never seen an actual hot spring source before so we after our failed trek to Boton Irawan Falls (not to mention the difficulty of going all the way up there which our trike surrendered to and turned out to be closed to public due to drought), we triked all the way from Irawan to Sta. Lourdes to see Marcos' Hot Spring.

From there's a sign to go to the back part to see it.

So this is the natural hot spring.  I wonder how they managed to place a tube and wall around it.  It was really hot and bubbling.  We've been told that locals have been cooking their eggs here since its discovery.  This is the main source of the hot spring water and it is pumped to the pools.

Fellow Travel Tripster Kurt was thrilled over this and spent around 30 minutes taking this photo.  I never got why but I'm sharing it with you cause maybe you can see the art in it or something.  I looked gross to me and I was impatient so I went on to see where we can bathe.

This was unoccupied when I arrived but soon a family of locals came and rented it out.  The locals though we were Chinese or Korean tourists so they were very friendly with us and spoke to us in English.  They told us that we could rent this for 500 php an hour.  We found the rate to be reasonably priced but the apparent stains and greenish color of the water made us repulsive. 

We Travel Tripsters learned a lot from this visit.  But, no we're not dipping ourselves in the Marcos' Hot Spring.
