Jacumba has more to offer: a San Diego secret

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – When some people hear of this small East County community of Jacumba Hot Springs, it’s oftentimes equated with negative connotations.

What’s typically known for being a dumping ground for sexually violent predators like Alan James, is actually a best-kept San Diego secret in many ways.

That’s because it’s home to Jacumba Spa, which attracts people from all over the world because of its special mineral waters: geothermal heated waters known for their healing qualities.

The water from the hot springs contains minerals reputed to have therapeutic effects on skin disease, liver, digestive and arthritic conditions.

The original Jacumba Bath House was a mecca for Hollywood celebrities such as Clark Gable.
