Puritama Hot Springs

Situated 30 km. north of San Pedro de Atacama, this is a fantastic place, althoug very cold and with no possibility of locating firewood.

There are a number of pools which are perfect for bathing, and the water temperature of 33°C might be ideal for those who can’t stand extrem heat. The water rises from underground streams and rivers, flowing through a gorge canyon towards the lower heights of San Pedro, where it creates a micro-climate.

There are changing rooms, saunas and bathrooms, all connected to the swimming pools by wooden walkways.
