Huge thermal hot-spring venue located not far from Santa Teresa along the Salkantay trek, absolutely amazing after a long few days of hiking! If you are in Santa Teresa, go here!

Cold/hot waterfalls, pristine blue waters, and amazing views. I love this hidden gem in the Jungly mountains of peru. Definitely worth the windy road from Machu Picchu/Aguas Calientes or the Sacred Valley

Hi, You can get Cocalmayo by Santa Teresa. Its only 5 minutes from this city. From Ollantaytambo, you need to get a bus or a taxi, there is so many solution to join Santa Teresa via Santa Maria, by the road.

I dont like the look of the man made square pool type hot spring baths. Are there any clean natural hot spring sites close to AC? Banos Termales de Cocalmayo looks nice.
