My husband and I took a combi to the entrance of Banos De Inca from the city center for 0.80 soles or 80 centimos. We waited in line for maybe 7 minutes and got our tickets for our messages. You basically get your own personal jacuzzi with hot spring water (there is a pod of three). Occasionally, an attend entry... More

Banos is a bath complex located near hot springs about 7 km from Kajamarca. The baths themselves are these private rooms that you rent, The water did not smell as strong as in most hot springs. I would have preferred a larger outdoor pool. There is also a museum on site with replicas of art from peru

Some parts of the place are really beautiful and clean, others are not. The feel of it all is very exotic and cool. The pool we got was run down, which made it feel a little dirty. Even though it probably wasn't. Go for one of their exclusive pools if you go here. :-)

You have to try everything. I was so relaxed that I couldn't walk for a while. The pace is fantastic and the staff is ready to guide and help you.

Go for a private room, and enjoy an hour of soaking in naturally heated water filled with various minerals. Then have a nice meal, and go back to your hotel, and enjoy a 2 hour nap, it will top off your day.

It is worth a visit. We did the family pools which seem to be newer and it was basically like taking a hot bath, which is nice if you live in Perú and do not have the luxury of having a tub in your home We did a little horse ride afterwards, s/.3 for about a five minute ride. Good... More

I have visited variou hot baths around my home state of Idaho and this compares nicely to some of them. However you can not bet the price. My wife and I are both seniors and we got a privat bath for 6 Soles or $1.75! You cannot beat the price. The place was clean and the water had no smell... More

I was surprised to see the layout of steaming pools and expected to take a dip in the outdoors but we were led to a small room with no window to the outside, was quite weird really. Grounds were really well maintained with very helpful staff. Can recommend eating at the food outlet at the back of the small food... More

I didn't really get the appeal I'm afraid - I was expecting to be able to relax outside in thermal pools but you rent a private bath and then sit in it! Perhaps it's just different to other ones I've been to in Peru and other places. If you go to the swimming pool be aware that they close for... More
