You can take a collectivo from Santa Teresa for a few soles per person, or walk 25 minutes to get to these hot springs. The pools are outdoors, surrounded by mountains and situated right by a river. We paid 10 soles per person for entry. There are change rooms, bathrooms, cold outdoor showers, as well as little shops for snacks... More

The baths, which are composed of 3-4 large rock-edged pools fed by natural hot springs, were a great way to relax after several days of trekking. There are changing rooms on site, an outdoor shower, and towels for rent. There is also a bar on site. The most important piece of advice so that you can continue to feel relaxed... More

If you are passing over Santa Teresa in Cusco, you must go to this thermal baths, they are extremely relaxing. Try to go at sunset or night. There are some collective taxis for USD 1 by person.

I was hiking the Salkantay Trek and I believe we stopped here on the third or fourth day. After days of intense hiking, soaking in the hot springs was the greatest idea ever! I spent several hours here, enjoying the healing of the water and lovely scenery. There were several pools here, all with different temperatures. Obviously, it was crowded... More

Our tour group came here after a long day of hiking. I was expecting the gross hot springs I read about, but that's Aguas Calientes! This is a nice place! Not too crowded. We arrived at sunset and it was not too cold to be in the water after night fall. The snacks you can buy are Doritos, Lays, Oreos,... More

This was a nice break from hiking. More of a "warm springs" than the hot springs I'm used to in Colorado. The views were absolutely breathtaking and the water was clean. Be careful with the bugs around the springs - all our bug spray washed off in the water, and when we got out, our ankles got torn up with... More

So much better than any other of the hot springs. You can stay in until nightfall and watch the swallows and stars! Truly amazing!
