  • What a pleasure to relax in these hot baths... even a little too hot in some pools. We had a relaxing break in this known site of the neighbouring villages. Site to share with family

  • I recently visited these springs of Chivay and I thought it was very comforting, the water is very hot at the beginning, the evaporation from the pool, you can see as if I were preparing for a soup with vegetables. The waters come from the Cotallaulli volcano. In my case, it was better to make locomotion, since the 3 km away from the town of Chivay combined with the height of 3,650 meters pass account. You can take a van that they depart from the square and has the value of 1 sol per person also to return these mobile also stands outside of La Calera. Within the swimming pool is not recommended to be more than 40 minutes, and it is that you wish to enjoy more time, but the body is dehydrated and produces fatigue. Ideal to go with a bottle of water to drink, you can also be purchased in the same complex. One of the ways to enjoy these thermal waters is to go to Chivay in bus, spend the night there and the next day go to the hot springs in such a way to not feel limited at times. In the village there are accommodations of every type and level. Just as a suggestion to La Calera, improve hygiene and cleaning in the bathrooms; and the smell of sewer at the entrance of the enclosure, but everything else was extraordinary.

  • We visited the hot springs pool(s) after a busy day of work. Part of a medical team doing volunteer work in the Colca Valley. Lovely way to relax and unwind.  more »

Where to stay in Arequipa

Most accommodations in Arequipa cluster on the east side of the Chili River. The historical center offers the best selection of options, with plenty of budget hostels and mid-range hotels scattered throughout its streets. For something quieter, look north to the neighborhoods of Zemanat and San Jacinto. If you're looking for a suburban experience, stay in the western neighborhood of Yanahuara.
