  • Short visit, nice location but dirty water and grumpy people there.. Just as nice uncle to go to a cozy cafe in the way there..!

  • It has 5 heated pools, and the water comes from the river. Dirty water, small, crowded pools. There was a very bad smell coming from the waters. The entrance abroad costs 20 soles, and one can order drinks in the pools, but I could not stay more than 10 minutes on site. The beautiful place eh by the landscape.
