Five different baths to choose from but we stayed in number one which was partially shaded. Changing rooms and showers available plus lockers and towels to hire. Just 300m from the zip line so combine the activities for a fun morning or afternoon.

We visited the hot springs pool(s) after a busy day of work. Part of a medical team doing volunteer work in the Colca Valley. Lovely way to relax and unwind.

We spent a couple of hours here on our Colca Canyon trip. There are a number of baths, each at a different temperature. The outside baths were best for us. Be prepared to be stared at if you are European and female.

Sadly the outside pool didn't have water in it! However, the covered pool did! There are changing rooms along the edge, and you can just stick your bag on a bench and watch over it whilst you are in the hot spring water. After a...More

I enjoyed the thermal bath! 15 soles for entrance including locker. Yes indeed it is somewhat crowded.

OK. Yes it felt good but so does a hot shower. This is basically a hot pool (it is a pool) to soak in. Nothing miraculous about it. Also nothing natural. If you've seen natural hot springs, this is not it. But if you like...More
