Wanted an outdoor experience, so chose the "piscina", the open pool option rather than a private tub/room. Enjoyed the fresh air and mountains view, but was surprised that the pool was not warmer. Didn't feel much different than being in any swimming pool, except less crowded! Went on Wednesday, no long waits, no lines. The followup massage was surprisingly a... More

The place is very rustic and comfortable. You have to make a line but if you go there in the morning the line is no so big like in the noon. The price is very cheap ($5 or more until $10, I dont remember so much, the money is in soles) I recomend it

Of the British travelers' tourist map. Sadly you don't get to dip into the fantastic hot water outside. Instead you have to fill up a hot tub inside a little room which was not much fun. But this is Peru.

Went here with two friends and it was nothing above average. You basically pick a room with a tub and you get 40 minutes to soak with water temperature of your liking. They do sell towels but I would bring one as they are kind of overpriced. The massage was nice but the wait was very long and they did... More

Maybe my expectations were too high because it didn't impress me at all. It is located in Baños del Inca district. The medicinal thermal baths are indoors not outdoors as I thought, you can see the original thermal baths which are outside but you can't swim there cause the temperature is 72 C, but that water goes for the indoors...

We spent a day there and did swimming, sauna, hand message and hydro-message.The rest are fine but hydro-message was a waste of time and money.

Very affordable private rooms with steaming hot water! A nice place to bring a bottle of wine or champagne, spend a half hour relaxing, and be back to whatever else you´re trying to do in the city. Easily accesible by public transportation, and during the week there weren´t any long waits. The wells themselves were very pretty, too.

Great place to enjoy thermal waters! It's every relaxing place you can get a private thermal or go to the thermal pool we enjoy the big private areas. Though they have been really limiting the time which is kinda annoying. They use to offer more time for what you pay. Not you get about half the time for the same... More

This is a public park with football and barbecue sites. Also there are private thermal baths that look clean and nice. It is extremely cheap (~3USD per person)! There is no other archeological information on the site other that a one room museum. I can't comment on it because it was closed on a Saturday morning!? It's not worth a... More

This is a great place to relax and one of at least two thermal pool areas, the other nearby one is used mostly by locals. I used the outdoor pool for around two dollars for an hour. They limit the number of waders which was nice. The water in the pool was comfortable and not too hot so people could... More
