The hot springs were a welcome relief after 6 days of trekking. Take the time to relax and soak away the sores in one of 3 pools, each at a different temperature. Spent over 3 hours there, saw lots of groups drop by for quick dip, which doesn't do justice to this natural outdoor experience.
Much larger and less congested that the grimy pool at Aguascalientes.

Came here at the end of the 2nd day of the Inka Jungle Trek. The presence of JCBs indicated that there was building work going on, which detracted somewhat from the beauty of the location, but the pools were still warm and relaxing (or cold and invigorating, if that is what you wanted!).

NB. The English used on the back of the entry ticket has been appallingly translated from Spanish, and is worth a read eg. 'He remains finally prohibited: the revenue of pets; chapotear in the puddles or to be thrown by great impulse; the use of radio or breeding animal of music with high volume.'

This is perfect for a weary hiker after the inca trail or machu picchu. The pools are large and vary in temperature. It's a bit expensive in (10soles). You can get a taxi to and from these baths for 5soles per person.

You can take a collectivo from Santa Teresa for a few soles per person, or walk 25 minutes to get to these hot springs. The pools are outdoors, surrounded by mountains and situated right by a river. We paid 10 soles per person for entry.

There are change rooms, bathrooms, cold outdoor showers, as well as little shops for snacks and drinks. You can buy cold beers, but you won't be allowed to bring them to the pools.

It's warm and tropical here, and there is no shade in the mid afternoon. Later in the afternoon, the pools are in the shade of the mountain. There are 4 large pools, with the hottest one right up top. There's also a little area to the side where cold river water flows out from a little waterfall. I love alternating between the hot and cold water to soothe out aches and muscle tightness. :)

My only complaint is that there were these awful bugs that draw blood when they bite. They leave holes in your skin that itch and hurt, and they seem to take a long time to recover from. They come out full force in the evening so be sure to spray on some deet. I still got bites even with copious amounts of repellent.
