Located near Palm Springs, Desert Hot Springs is indeed home to quite a few natural mineral hot springs. We stayed at Caliente Springs Resort which has a large pool, several spas and showers all of which are fed from the mineral springs. The water from the Desert Hot Springs Aquifer continues to be heated by ancient geothermal forces thousands of feet below the earth’s surface. Naturally heated to temperatures as high as 180 degrees, the waters are thought to have curative properties.
