Ojo del Inca, Potosi

(4/5 based on 95+ 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.

  • Is closed for bath and any other type of visitor. To access this street closed also. In recent months, often dangerous whirlpools are happening, so I closed the site.
