Termas de Banos Colina, San Jose de Maipo

3.8
#3 of 10 in Outdoors in San Jose de Maipo
Relax weary minds and feet at Termas de Banos Colina, thermal baths within a remote and peaceful mountainous setting. Sit back and survey the skies as the thermal baths warm and relax you. Decent trails can be found nearby if you'd prefer to work up a sweat before indulging in the baths. 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.

    The best contact with the nature, still without intervention this side of the drawer. Nature in all its glory.

    Very cute but on summer days is very hot and there is no shade. There is no where to buy food so you have to take, be sure to carry a tent and much coat wind runs at night and it is cold. Wells special for night swimming due to the high temperatures of the waters.

    The experience of going into pools with temperatures between 30 and 50 degrees is very interesting, however, the entire structure of the site is quite precarious, since the bathrooms to return, that do not have lighting and hot water, until around the pools, which are ground and slopes.

    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.
