La Paloma Too, New Mexico

Finding a hot spring straight out of the ground is not so easy.

Normally, only a tub can be made right above the source of the spring.

However, at Truth or Consequences, one of the most famous spa cities in the southwest of the United States, there are many hot tubs with water straight out of the ground.
