Ojo del Inca, Potosi

(4.1/5 based on 90+ 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.

  • Obligation to go to this beautiful place between mountains, obligation to also be careful when it comes to bathe in the waters of the eye... There are countless people who die drowned. Since Potosi locals sali me advertia precautions that must be taken and so many cases of dead people victims of these waters. To reach the site, approached the Manager of the Lake, I talk about the history of the place and the mysterious phenomenon that makes dangerous waters of the eye. The conversation is interrupted and the Lord began to run towards the other side of where I was. How already imagine... the man found the body of a person already lifeless. This message aims to raise awareness among the people who go to visit the place and try on my part that does not happen what you happened to that person, that day.

  • Cute place but lack of maintenance. You can access on their own is not necessary to hire a tour, just have to check with the local people how to arrive by bus.
