Ojo del Inca, Potosi
(4.2/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web)
Take a restorative dip in Ojo del Inca, a natural thermal pool steeped in history and located in the eye of a volcano. This natural pool forms an almost-perfect circle. Its cone-shaped bottom measures 1 m (3.2 ft) deep around the edges, with the center going down to about 45 m (150 ft). Temperatures in the water here reach around 35 C (95 F), and are said to have therapeutic benefits. Rumor has it Inca kings traveled here all the way from Cusco, Peru to bathe. Put Ojo del Inca into our Potosi tour planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Potosi.

  • Go to the eye of the inca was a unique and impressive experience. To get there you have to take a trufi address Miraflores, it warns the driver that you are going to the eye of the inca to let you in the right place, the trufi can take it opposite the bus station to Uyuni. Once you arrive you can go two ways, one which can upload cars (when we arrived had two taxis waiting for some British) or through the mountain following the trail of white stones. When you have already uploaded a man will charge you 10 bs per person to enjoy the place. When we went out to a temperature of about 10 °, and the water was at 30°! It was a unique experience. That Yes, be careful because according to us told the guardian, through the Centre of the lagoon can be eddies that you succionen... To return to Potosí have to wait on the road has happens some micro or trufi is not this full so that you can be waiting for 10 min. or 1 h.

  • Located in the middle of the mountains, this natural lake at the temperature ranging between 30 and 35 ° is a beautiful place! Possibility of a picnic to enjoy the surroundings and bathe while there is very little tourist (from the less end September). 10 bolivianos go back from the Potosí market (lower town) then walk 10aine minutes rise and 10 bolivianos to swim, which is reasonable. Attention to the sensitive souls, the ground is natural (muddy) and it will stay on the Board for not taking risk and to keep (not walk according to the places). A must do while visiting Potosi (possible even on a day in the afternoon after the Cerro Rico).
