near La Primavera, Jalisco (Mexico)

Mostly an easy hike, but rock jumping around Rio Esmeralda is a big challenging as you need to cross it several times, hopping rocks over skalding hot water (70C). Won't burn but will hurt if you step in it.
Don't take small kids or pets who cannot jump by themselves. Great place for photo shoots because of the bright emerald green and orange algae in the hot creek. Afterwards hiked on the very easy fire road by Rio Caliente and went in for a hot dip. Lots of interesting geological features including obsidian, piedra pumis, iron ore, intrusions and extrusions, etc.
