  • This is a visit that is worth a visit. We had a guide who was very patient with us. He spoke only Spanish and we explained really slowly and with gestures to ensure it was understood. The landscapes are beautiful and there are plenty of birds. For my part I didn't like the water bath. It stinks... we have dinner on the spot. A beautiful day for a lower cost. ($5)

  • Great for a day filled with information on the site by experts. The sulfuric water bath was a memorable experience. Recommended for all ages.

  • Is definitely a trip not to be missed, if it attracts you to know a little culture remain, in this place make you guided tours showing ancestral tombs and is a lagoon's sulfurous water that springs from the soil, then it becomes a museum exhibiting part Archaeological. This whole system managed by the 80 native families of the area, who give you memories and charge a minimum value to support your expenses
