Located meters away from the US/Mexican Border, Jacumba, California is part of the famously referred to Hot Springs section of the State.
Occupied by the Kumeyaa people, prior to the European’s sacking and pillaging, Jacumba has become a beacon of spas and resorts in the area. After the Spaniards settle in and the conquistadors had their way with the Native People, Ranchers proliferated in the area. Up until the very end of the 19th Century, Ranchers and Indians were caught in a hostile circle of violence and conflict. One of the most prolific moments in these war occurred in February 27, 1880, when local landowners slew and hung over 15 Natives for cattle rustling.
In the beginning of the 20th century, the health and relaxation benefits of natural hot springs began to upsurge. A boom of commercialization seized the area. The region was caught in frenzy of expansion and marketing potential. Real Estate tycoons flooded the area and started constructing resorts, hotels, public baths and restaurants. A tiny oasis of hot springs toeing the line with Mexico.
The the 1920’s the town had a world class hotel,. It had become a top destination for silver screen idols and famous celebs’ of that era. Each an every movie star attracted by the natural panaromas, the exquisite amenities and the sulfuring waters that gave off a pleasant smells and did wonders for the skin.
Jacumba’s role as premier vacation trap for the creme de la creme started to decline post Second World War, when it began to feel the competition as Murrieta and Palm Springs open up their services. The stake, that ended up killing the vampire for almost 50 years occurred when Interstate 8 bypassed Jacumba by two miles; drawing the trade to its roadside services and leaving the small town to shrivel up and die.
The area is dry with an annual average rainfall of 11.8 inches (300 mm). It is a desert terrain where the temperature oscillates between extremes. Nonetheless, the volcanic landscape, plus the mountain ranges east of In-Ko-Pah Mountains afford this area a hot blast of air. Temperatures have been known to climb in midday into the upper 90’s and even, crossing that threshold and hitting the 105ºF with ease.

Hiking trails and bird watching a must in the area for any lover of sandy and desert terrains. Two: sitting back, relaxing and taking the load off, in one of the many spas the area has developed for you and your kin.
