  • Is really good and Nice, but charge a 17000 pesos per person in the morning and afternoon 9000, too expensive. The baths are formed by 8 beautiful pools, a little small, but comfortable. The hotel that manages the area offers restrooms and locker rooms without shower.

  • Perfect to complete a last day in San Pedro after the hectic but wonderful tours of the sector. They are very relaxing hot springs, were installed, dressing rooms and bathrooms close for comfort. It is 30 minutes away from the town. Altogether there are 8 pools, the higher is the hottest and lowest coldest. Simply delicious and highly recommended!

  • It is an excellent choice to go after visiting the Tatio geysers. Pools formed in an environment natural with the water thermal to temperature ideal.

  • Natural hot springs great for relaxing. The entrance fee can be a little bit pricey on weekends and in the morning but you won't find as many people as in the afternoon. Great for picnics!
  • Not crowded, worth the money!
  • Really nice wellness! It's just a joy too lie in the natural pools, really warm and cozy. A bit crowded, but there are many pools, so we could find a spot.
  • way overpriced ($18 USD), and for that money you don't even get a lock for their lockers. staff doesn't care about anything. the actual facilities are nice but what a ripoff.
  • Great place to relax, enjoy and end a trip of several days by San Pedro de Atacama. The baths have various swimming pools in which they enjoy, where the temperature is not as high as in other. The only thing against is the price for access to them, which rises more if done through a tour.
