I cannot think of a better place to spend an hour after a long drive. We paid for a private room. It was clean and very relaxing, worth every sol.

I'm sorry if I'm not agree with many people who love Baños del Inca but this really was a disappointing experience. The place smells like boiled eggs 😖; the person who was timing our usage of the room was kind of rude plus he started knocking on the door so loud even before our time was up. My advice for... More

We go there a lot when we are in Cajamarca...For only about 2 - 3 US Dollars you get a private room with a great hot mineral bath for one-half hour. There are nice restaurants around there also.

In order to bathe in the real themal waters, be the first ones arriving early. The staff fill in the tubs, pools with thermal waters in the evening so it is not that hot when the first people arrive in the morning. If you arrive late, be aware the water is not pure thermal but mixed with regular water. There... More

Banios del Inka is a place to visit just to feel the heat of thermal waters, but I did not feel like taking a bath cause the place is full of little pools not so clean and vary bad administrated.

This is said to be where Atahaulpa rested and bathed immediately before his ill-fated meeting with Pizarro. There are a number of baths for visitors who come to enjoy the hot springs.

I enjoyed my visit to the baths but I must advise, don't get a massage. It was 20 soles, $7, which sounded like a great price for an hour massage. But the massage was only 5 minutes! First you shower, then walk on some stones, then get in a private whirlpool/bath tub, then shower again then get massaged for 5... More

Like mini private pools where you can wash and float in very hot thermal waters. CHECK the panel at the entrance and CHOOSE which bath you want. Ask for the baths further away from the entrance like the Humbolt as it feels more private. ALSO can rent a FAMILIAR for 20 soles if you want a huge one.

The atmosphere was good but we only had 25 min because we arrived a little late. Usually we have 30 min. Banos del Inca closes 8pm. The stuff will knook your door if you take too much time. There are no shampoo and soup. Need to bring everything what you need. But still hot spring is really relaxing
