“Don't go”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013

Don't waste your money. The baths are dirty and luke warm. I was very disappointed because I was looking for some relaxation after Machu Picchu only to find this disgusting place. What a shame because it could be so much better.

“You must go early”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

The place have the necessary facilities, bathroom, change rooms, and checkroom. You only have to bring a bathing suit and a towel, there are shops at the entrance that rents towels very cheap.
The main recommendation is to go before noon because later is filled with people and the water gets dirty.

“Don't do it. Really don't.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

Thought we'd check out the thermal baths as a nice afternoon activity, after reading a recommendation in a guide book. Ummmm.....no.

After paying up front, we hiked up the hill, and when we rounded the corner and took in the baths, collectively shuddered. Small, dirty, crammed with people, mostly old leering men. Pass.
