Puritama Hot Springs

By Viajando Comigo
On this visit, we'll enjoy a bath to replenish our energy in the Puritama Hot Springs, located 30 kilometers from San Pedro de Atacama. Its waters are born in the Andes Mountains and reach high temperatures because of the proximity to volcanic materials. Afterwards, we go to the surface on the Puritama River, creating eight natural pools, surrounded by hills and native vegetation. The place has changing rooms, bathrooms and terraces in each of the pools. The average temperature of the thermal waters is 33 °C.

    Epic experience!
    What a memorable day. Our guide Christopher was nothing short of amazing, he was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic and incredibly helpful with everything. I’ve never seen someone work so hard to make sure everyone had a good time and that we learned a lot about the desert. The sites on the on this tour were all different and amazing. Highly recommend!

    A day out of ordinary
    Even if the tour started 2 hours later, the guide was generous of his time and was patient with the group and gave us all time needed for pictures. He barely spoke English but it was amazing how he tried hard to please the whole group.

    A must do in San Pedro de Atacama
    Very good itenerary. Caroline our guide did an outstanding job. Many thanks to her. I give a 4* because the fees to the Highlands was not known to me (19000 pesos). I suggest to be added to the exclusions. Breakfast and lunch nicely presented and exceeded my expectations.

    A must do !
    We are motorbike riders and hesitated a lot before taking a tour that we thought we may have done by ourselves but we don´t regret it at all ! It had been an amazing and diverse tour made very interesting thanks to the deep knowledge of Alan our guide. The breakfast was delicious too.

The place itself was beautiful, but I would definitely not recommend this company for a tour. The duration was listed for 5.5 hours, but the total trip was only 4--with a half hour delay returning included. This meant we only had less than an hour and a half actually at the hot springs, which wasn't enough time to even see all the pools or relax at all. This time included changing time (with very few rooms for all the people, so there was a line) and the hike down and back. This meant less than 10 minutes per pool and you had to walk far distances between them.

We also selected an English guide and our guide was unable to communicate in English, so we missed almost all of the information about the hot springs, the volcanic activity, and Indigenous culture (we only understood a little thanks to our knowledge of some Spanish). She was nice and this was likely not her fault, but the tour company shouldn't advertise a bilingual guide if they can't actually provide one.

Lastly, there was no communication about a very steep hike going down and up to the springs. This trip was listed as accessible and I have a mild knee injury and use a cane, and the hike aggravated the injury.

Overall, for spending half our tour budget on this one trip, we were very disappointed at a rushed, exhausting, and unguided experience.
