  • We stayed at between lakes and thence did the road hot springs, went to the hot springs and we went to Antillanca. 100% rexomendable, the road is beautiful, exuberant nature with ferns and leafy trees. This lagoon above Mirror Lake bull in the middle of the rainforest. In downtown Antillanca we leave the car and climb to the Raihuen crater, no doubt a small beautiful path. Anyway to return

  • I met Anticura and Aguas Calientes, in one day you can meet both and activities. In water hot is the option of the spa or indoor pool, but they are not very nice, crossing the bridge thermal pools can be found free, there are beautiful trails to a pretty viewpoint. Then upload to Anticura, they are several small trails that reach different waterfalls, very cute and you don't have to walk so much. There are lodging options in Anticura very choras.
