[Nearly on Border] Boquillas (Langford) Hot Springs

Do you know hot springs nearly on border?

The border between the United States and Mexico became the focus of attention, due to President Trump’s promise.

When you soak in the hot spring that is located nearly on the border, what will you see from the tub…?

Big Bend National Park

Big Bend National Park is one of the largest, and at the same time the least popular national parks in the continental United States.

In exchange for untouched wilderness, it is extremely difficult to get around; it takes five hours’ drive from El Paso and six from San Antonio.

In 1909, there was a man who established a resort around hot springs set in this splendid view of nature.

His name was J.O. Langford.

Many people visited his town in search the efficacy for malaria.

However, nobody was able to stay living in this town, due to repeated attacks from gangs of bandits.

Even today, hot springs are upwelling from the ruin, which become one of the attracts of the national park.

Cliff

After you pass by ruins, proceeding along the cliff, you will hear chatter of the Rio Grande River.

Rustic Open-air Bath

It is so surprising that many people gather around the hot spring, in this vast park!

Open-air bath

You need to wear bathing suits and the rate is, of course free.

The upper part of the building of an indoor bath collapsed and it looks like an open-air bath.

The water temperature is around 104 degrees and there is no smell and taste.

At the bottom, there is a water outlet, and the amount of water is OK.

Nobody seems to have cleaned the tub for a long time, and it is partly muddy.

Now then, where is the border?

Infinity Pool

In fact, the opposite shore is Mexico.

The Rio Grande is indeed a rushing river, but anyone can easily go across it.

When you soak in the hot spring that is located nearly on the border, you will see just a small river.

Summary

😆 Pros

Natural infinity pool nearly on the border

😥 Cons

The nature of the water is not characteristic, and the tub is partly muddy.
