The Baños del Inka. The place where the spaniards met Inka Atahualpa. Today, with modern infrastructure, you can go to enjoy your hot thermal bath in personal tubes. Very comfortable, and clean ideal for couples. The sauna is very good too and the best of...More

Women, please watch out! While the private baths are fantastic, I booked a massage and was SEXUALLY MOLESTED by the massage therapist! (Appropriate actions are being taken by my embassy). Please be careful, ask for a woman masseur. I thought I was and they switched...More

if you want to take a shower there, it's not possible, there are other rooms for that, i find these rooms amazing places for open minded group of friends or swinger couples. It's a paradise then. Coming back to the touristic atraction, its very worthy.

Choose a public lap pool or a private room for a hot soak. If you have to wait a few minutes for your room, you can view the gardens, outdoor ponds, and original Inca bath. Private really does mean private; you won't need a swim...More

I'm not a connoisseur of public baths, but this one didn't seem to have a lot going for it apart from its place in history. So fun to take a bath exactly where Atahualpa did! A private bath for a couple costs a nominal amount...More

Another hidden treasure in Cajamarca. The girls bathed in one of the private rooms feed with water from the hot springs. 4 soles for 30 minutes. The place is well taken care and there is history to learn about it.
