Located 3 km from Chivay these thermal pools are well worth a visit. There are several pools, main pool runs at a pleasant 38 degrees and is very clean and well maintained. Lockers are available, note locker number then lock with padlock. To reopen contact...More

Five different baths to choose from but we stayed in number one which was partially shaded. Changing rooms and showers available plus lockers and towels to hire. Just 300m from the zip line so combine the activities for a fun morning or afternoon.

We visited the hot springs pool(s) after a busy day of work. Part of a medical team doing volunteer work in the Colca Valley. Lovely way to relax and unwind.

I enjoyed the thermal bath! 15 soles for entrance including locker. Yes indeed it is somewhat crowded.

OK. Yes it felt good but so does a hot shower. This is basically a hot pool (it is a pool) to soak in. Nothing miraculous about it. Also nothing natural. If you've seen natural hot springs, this is not it. But if you like...More
