The place is very nice and relaxed...I expected the water to be hotter than it is and be prepared for the really cold wind when you leave the water or if you'll eat in the designed place, it's very open and windy!

It’s possible to go to the Termas Puritama trekking what makes the tour and the place even more special, highly recommend and in the end of one hour trekking through the Puritama river you will get to the Termas!!!

Worthwhile to take a guided 2-hour hike up the valley to reach this well-earned reward to soak in the turquoise thermal pools in the middle of the gorge.

Easy trip from San Pedro (30 minutes). Perfect spot to get relaxed after other tours in the area. Different pools, not very hot, very nice view! Perfect match of colors (browns, greens and blue). They offer lockers, bathroom and a place where your tour guide...More

If you go in prepared for warm springs instead of hot springs you'll be ok. The pools range from 28-34 degrees celcius with the warmest pools being at the top. We found every pool lovely to sit in even the coolest. We started at the...More

It's a stream with warm water. You can relax in 7 natural pools. The infrastrucure includes toillet and restroom. There's no bar and snack service. You pay a fee that is more expensive in the morning (15.000,00 CLP - jan/18). Relaxing.

These hot springs are nicely landscaped but very crowded. Even the section that's exclusive to Explora hotel guests was congested when we visited. If possible, arrive here by hiking along the river—it's an easy, pretty hike, and it'll make you feel like you really earned...More

We drives ourselves and spent about 2hrs in the pools. Really relaxing as there weren't too many people. Water was super clean. I don't think there was a difference in the temperature of the pools, they all felt the same. They were warm enough to...More

We booked transport from San Pedro for an afternoon. The pools are set up in succession, so you can choose how hot you want to soak. We started at the bottom (coolest) and were immediately too cold, so we kept moving up until we were...More

Take a waterproof bag for your valuables and take it from pool to pool. Weekdays no F&B service Absolutely do wear Hawaianas for walking on the not so well maintained wood planks. Pools are supposed to be temperature graded top down. Since there is a...More

Considering your flight time, you need at least 1 hour to be at the airport. From San Pedro to Calama Airport you spend about 1 hour. So, you can be there until 5 PM. If I remember well, Tours will leave you on morning... More
