The roads to the thermal baths are not in the best shape, so drive a 4x4 if you can and beware of lorries in the area due to the proximity to mines.

  • Thermal bath open 24 hours with 4 small warm pools (temperature of the water from 35 °C to 50 °C). The road to reach the destination can be challenging (especially if you don't drive a SUV), but it's worth driving till there to relax in warmth while it snows and there are condors flying around. The entrance costs 8000 CLP. I'll give 5 stars when the restrooms are improved.
  • The hot springs lowered in temperature as you go lower down the hill and we found the 3rd one from the top to be perfect for us. I didn't see anybody using the upper most one as it's probably too hot. It was overall a good experience and the drive there was fun and scenic. The major downsides are the price to enter at 8,000 Chilean pesos per person, the smelly washroom, and crowdedness.
  • There are amazing views from the natural pools, you can exfoliate your face for free and the price is affordable.
  • Nice place, but could improve it's structure.
  • Awesome hot springs
