  • Very relaxing place with a beautiful view, the best without a doubt the thermal baths that exist in the place they have to get across the river via a bridge.

  • 01-10-2017 is the buy-five soles. This price entitles you to use a few dressing rooms and very basic showers and locker. It has five pools of sulphurous water. Some of them are covered. There were many local people mixed with tourists. The water temperature is between the 36ᵒC and 39ᵒC, as announced in the pools. A trick I was taught there for choosing that pool use, is to ask that pool which have cleaned that day, since they clean a swimming pool every day. There are stalls that serve meals and drinks in the same pools and users eat and drink in the same pools (all very cumbersome). Some local users take their own music, which lay very high and it is very loud and annoying. The environment of the pools is nice. They have a mini Museum very basic and careless. You can get from Chivai in a public service of combis, which operates a local company called: EMP. VELOZ del COLCA S.A., you have to take the vehicle that puts Express Hot Springs-Calera. In addition you can also reached by taxi. If you have nothing better to do, and because it is not expensive, worth the ride, but if you have alternative it is better to do something else.
