  • It the best site to visit and have relaxing moments. If you have a car you can get there only in half a hour and spend all day there. 
  • It is a wonderful place, was born a thermal bath in the river... offering a space to enjoy the desert immersed in crystalline waters... Super temperature... with vegetation in the desert and a view of volcanoes and hills which produces a wonderful visual contrast. to reach it you should use a transfer from san pedro de atacama or do it by car. The value of a transfer from san pedro to the terma is 12000 to 15000 Chilean pesos... and the value of the entry is 15000 with input reduced to third age to 5000 seems a must while in san pedro de atacama... I have been 4 times there and still makes me feel enthusiasm back to it the

  • 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!
  • 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.
  • Not crowded, worth the money!
  • 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.
  • Wonderful setting, a landscape that hardly will forget and perhaps not have to navigate all the pools to enjoy the hot springs
