Termas de Banos Colina, San Jose de Maipo

3.8
#3 of 8 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 genius of this place is that the water is very hot in the first pool and the temperature goes down to pools descend. They also have attention 24 hours and the sector is good to buy goat cheese and bread kneading a bit more into the enclosure. It is recommended that if performed hiking go with water and proper shoes, since there is much plaster and crystals of this one, which are quite dangerous to walk in certain places. If you are with geological hammer pretty good crystals of gypsum can be extracted. Sector is focused only on camping or go during the day, I think is quite expensive in relation price/quality ($9,000 p/p) since does not offer bathrooms or showers in correct state or sanitized. However, is that they are doing works to give baths and showers status OK, ceramic and not to bare concrete, including the two currently offered. The times that I've seen is always very full and complex to enter the baths.

  • Is far from Embalse El Yeso and the road there is pretty bad. Billed 8,000 pesos per person to enter and not have any structure. Toilets barely finished. Does not have a place where you can leave your stuff. The view is beautiful, but it could be a place with a better structure. Take plenty of water and food because it's in the middle of nowhere.

  • The place is quite interesting although my expectation has not matched the reality. There's no structure to change clothes, very windy and we spent a lot of cold. I had no courage to enter the swimming pools. The boys of the group came in and really liked it.

  • 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.
  • One of the best trips out of Santiago. It's a must for tourists
  • It's a magic place! Very quiet with amazing hot springs at different temperatures.
  • Nice experience but very expensive for what it is... 8000 clp per person
  • 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.
