“Relaxing times in this Hot Spring”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

3km outside of Chivay. Very relaxing hot spring pool. For little money you can give your body a rest from the hours of driving and chill at this place. The provide lockers and showers.

“Must visit! Clean and hot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Hot springs can easily be disgusting, but these were so clean and the waters were relatively clear. Take a mototaxi from chivay for 5 soles and a combi on the way back for 1. If you're a student with ID ask about a discount.

“Great side trip in Chivay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Chivay is cold. These mineral baths are hot, and in a lovely setting. Definitely worth the 3-5 soles mototaxi ride outside of town.

“Must do - a great way to warm up in the Colca Canyon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

We visited here on our night in Chivay with Gadventures. It was a great way to relax and spend an hour or so. The main pool at the hot springs is pretty big, with plenty of place to sit and enjoy a beer while taking in the Inca terraces on the nearby mountains - one of my favourite parts of the trip :)

Nothing special. Was nice to relax in the hot water after hours on a small travel bus. Cheap in (10soles) so cant complain. But wouldnt be in a rush to go back.
