Relax in the therapeutic waters of the Puritama Hot Springs when you take this amazing trip from San Pedro Atacama. These natural thermal baths are located at the foot of the magnificent Andes mountain range.
Puritama Hot Springs Trip
We will collect you from the center of San Pedro de Atacama and then head north through the Atacama desert. After driving for around half an hour we will reach a canyon with a stream of natural thermal water flowing at the bottom.
The Puritama Hot Springs are eight pools of geothermal springwater formed from this stream, situated in a stunning location at the foot of the magnificent Andean mountain range. Once on site, you will have three hours of your own free time to enjoy the hot springs and take a soothing dip in these amazing natural baths.
The thermal waters reach up to 33.5ºC (92.3ºF) and are rich in minerals such as magnesium, sodium, lithium, and potassium. Inhabitants of the surrounding region have been using these spring baths since before the Spanish conquest as a traditional place of treatment for rheumatism, arthritis, and muscle fatigue.
This site is equipped with wooden walkways which connect all eight natural pools and the installations, such as bathrooms and the cafe. This makes it easy for you to make the most of your time on the site and enjoy the relaxing properties of the hot springs.
Fully rested and recharged, we will then start our return journey back to the initial point of departure in San Pedro de Atacama, arriving at 12:30 pm.
