Went for a run yesterday morning and came across Jerusalem Falls. Hiked into the jungle and followed signs to the warm bath, heated by hot water from the volcano. Was a beautiful little find. It was 7am so I was there alone, and I visited with Michael, whose family has owned the Falls area for 5 generations. He told me his grandfather lived to 103 by bathing every day in the hot, mineral-rich baths.
