There are a great number of natural springs spread throughout the entire State of Oaxaca. Their water springs from the soil, and is thermal, sulphurous, hot, or cold. These springs can be exploited for agricultural or recreational purposes, alike. Some are widely known, and others are not so popular because they are practically inaccessible.

We could safely say that most of the natural spas become well-known because they are near some town.

Some of the most popular are: those in the Isthmus of Tehuantepec Region, in the towns of Santiago Laollaga and Magdalena Tlacotepec. Another important one is the "Balneario de Atonaltzin" which has a sulphurous water spring, and is in the town of Tamazulapan Villa Del Progeso. Others, such as "Arroyo Blanco" (White Creek) and Vega del Sol form part of the currents that deviate from a river nearby. As they are located in a tropical zone, they receive visitors from all over the country, all year round.
