We spent an entire afternoon here, well worth it. We booked with a travel agency in San Pedro, their van took us right to the termas. Great vistas all the way there.

Changing facilities become quite hectic as all tours depart/ arrive approximately the same times. The spring is warm, not hot, but pleasant enough.
