SAN ANTONIO – The La Cantera Resort and Spa was recognized twice in a national ranking of the best pools and spas.

The luxury resort's pool was voted the third-best hotel pool in the nation in USA Today's 10Best Reader's Choice Poll. The resort's Loma De Vida Spa ranked fifth-best spa, alongside the Ritz-Carlton Spa in Dallas and the luxurious Waldorf Astoria Spa and Health Club in Chicago.

The best part: People can plan a "daycation" to the La Cantera Resort and Spa without breaking the bank.

Single-day passes to the resort start at $30 and include access to the resort's four pools, two waterslides, hot tubs, arcade, fitness center and more.

Access to the spa, however, does not come with the day pass. Single-day passes cannot be purchased to the spa.
