  • The baths not called my attention for 11 years ago when I was in Atacama. This time I decided to go. I loved. Are swimming pools that form in 08 river flow. The first pool is exclusive to guests of a particular hotel and the others are for the use of other visitors. The water is warmer in 1a. Has bathroom and local structure for meals. Take your snack/lunch because there's nothing to buy there. If you want to leave your belongings in the locker room, bring a lock because it has individual lockers available

  • They told I would have hot water, but... It is not hot neither cold. The price is not cheap, but the landscape is wonderful, I guess it worths  more »
  • It is a beautiful place, the road is good. The access in the morning costs $15,000 and in the afternoon from 14:00 $9,000. The water is warm, transparent and outdoor, has several pools, all clean. It should be water, food or snack as there is no local to acquire food. Keep in mind that the car is parked and it must be lowered by a slope of land to gain access to the hot springs.

  • 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
