These geothermal hot springs are not always open to soaking or safe, quite the contrary. Some are deadly. Take Yellowstone National Park in USA for example. Geothermal hot springs bubble up in sectioned off areas of the park because of their deadly nature. However, there are safe all natural hot springs all around the world, both at luxury resorts and primitive pools.
Hot springs range in size, temperature, cost, facilities, etc. That’s part of what’s so charming about them, each one is different.
