    Tourists really enjoy, but I was so cold that just in the mood to face it. As had already gone in Atacama, I preferred to watch.

    The idea to be able to bathe in hot water is very good, because the majority of the hostels within the national reserve Eduardo Abaroa do not have hot water. Arriving at this place, however it is very difficult not to feel disappointed: charge Bs.3 for use of the bathroom, which is 'green' - a toilet stop without a seat or a sneaky bucket full of... and splashed of..., nauseating, horrifyingly disgusting and without water! Bs.3 by bathing in the hot springs, a small pool of no more charge of 25 m 2 outdoor, a small "dressing room" with ceiling without a door in the same conditions of the baths. There is no balance between the supposed benefits of bathing in thermal waters and the possibility of becoming ill of pneumonia leaving it wet to withstanding the temperature under 0C and high plains wind. The only thing decent here is the small dining room where breakfast is served, is a solid construction with doors and make some incredible pancakes.

    Was ridiculously cold (freezing temperatures), we got there just before sunrise, you think too much in the cold that will be changed, go to the water and then get out, but it's an experience that you can't pass up! There's a little locker room (one female and one male), no cupboards, so watch your belongings not to evade or even not to forget in the middle of the mess that is the locker room. The locker room (which is not heated) to the terma is short, then you are nothing but taanto cold. The water is really hot! The water warms and the time you get out of the water, dry and dress again is not enough to leave you with the body cold as was before entering the Spa. After getting dressed, the clothes keep that thermal heat for longer. Gold Tip: dress up anything but stocking and shoes. Then lift the bars of pants, keep your foot in the water to warm up again, there is just dry and if you wear! It was worth it!
