We took a tour(more like a transportation service) there and only had about 2 hours. We would have stayed longer. It's in the valley and beautiful landscape. The hot spring is not super hot (enough to get you warm since it's at high altitude and the air is cold!). The facility is nice too. Well maintained. The dressing rooms are... More

Beautiful place in the middle of the desert, with eight warm water ponds in a beautiful scenario, good size changing room and clean restroom

Very chilled way to spend an afternoon or morning, super warm and you can take a picnic and beers and chill out in the sun. Only downside is it gets very busy so you're sharing the baths with a lot of people.

We visited the hot springs later in the day, and loved the beautiful, tranquil setting. There are several pools that descend down within a large canyon. A walkway leads along, and you can enter each pool one by one. As others have mentioned, the springs aren't quite as hot as what you would expect from a traditional hot tub, but... More

Was a bit sceptical at first, because I heard a lot of stories about 2 simple warm water holes in the middle of nowhere. Then was convinced by friends, I've met in Santiago. As I wanted to visit it in the morning and all the excursions are on in the afternoon, I've booked a private taxi to take me about... More

These beautiful spring waters have 8 natural pools in the middle of a huge ravine in the desert. The road that takes you there is long and winding... be aware of that and don't.go.with a full stomach. There are several bathrooms and lockers to leave your bags... you just need to take a lock. It's beautiful and very relaxing despite... More

Of all the San Pedro tours I'd give this a swerve. More tepid than hot springs. Do the geysers instead. They'll stick you in a lovely hot river in the middle of nowhere after the geyser tour itself

After a long day the day before visiting Salar de Tara and my daughter getting altitude sickness, we decided a relaxing day in the thermal springs would be perfect. It was! All agencies offer this but only some for the morning, which is much quieter. It really doesn't matter which agency you book with as you will all end up... More
