  • Better to go by car, you can leave a bus at the entrance, but then there is a very good walk up to the community. Once there the explanations from the ruins of the place are interesting and the walk up to the sulfurous Lake is short and okay. The best is undoubtedly the lagoon is muddy, wait to dry and then get into the lagoon, say that this process is good for the skin. Curious to see how to get the mud from the bottom of the lagoon diving and with a bucket, if you dare your also you can do it, it is not very deep. Overall nice place to spend half day
