Something not right?

Description

Free hot springs, 4 km off ruta 40. The road gets rougher the further you drive. We didn't have any problems to get here but bigger rigs than ours (6x2x3 meters) may have problems with the sharp turns and rocks overhead. Very quiet, no facilities, bathtubs with 37degrees warm water. Nice view down the valley. Free. If you don't want to drive all the way up, there is a camping municipal about halfway that looked decent.

🤢 The place is beautiful but the arrangements made are so horrible! Having created 5 bathtubs locked in cabins in such a way that you no longer have any view of the landscape and especially no longer see what you are bathing in... we did not dare to set foot there... too bad
Big rigs have to stop 1km below the spot and this do not have direct access to the camp spot.

What a wonderful spot!
we managed to come up to the thermals with the motorcycles but the road that leads there from the camping is pretty destroyed at the beginning. Even to get to the camping the road is really bad at the end just before the entrance to the campsites. High clearance needed. But the spot is wonderful and the free hot baths are just so relaxing!!

We had to leave the car on the municipal camping and continue the path on foot because the road collapsed. We went up on a hot day and had no shadow on the way. Be prepared. Arriving there the place was quiet and no one, but we frustrated us a little with the place. The water is really hot however the bathers were in a situation that seemed abandoned and the hygiene was not good either. We did not shower. The place is very beautiful. Maybe in another visitation someone is lucky with the bathrooms.

Tivemos que deixar o carro no camping municipal e continuar o trajeto a pé porque a estrada desmoronou. Subimos em um dia quente e não tinha nenhuma sombra no caminho. Esteja preparado. Chegando lá o local estava quieto e sem ninguém, porém nos frustamos um pouco com o lugar. A água é realmente quente porém os locais para banho estavam em uma situação que pareciam abandonados e a higiene também não estava boa. Não tomamos banho. O lugar é muito bonito. Talvez em uma outra visitação alguém tenha sorte com os locais de banho.

Honestly it is definitely not worth the detour. The road to come is horrible. We came with our van but we almost did not happen because the road crosses river and in some holes her typed strong against the shock park .. The campsite is free but without shower. And the thermal springs it is a shame to have done his as his. The place is dirty, the baths are not natural, they are small house without light with a bath dug in, it looks like the public toilet. I am very disappointed because the landscape is beautiful but the disappointing sources. I DISSIBILIT

Honnêtement sa ne vaut vraiment pas le détour. La route pour venir est horrible. Nous sommes venu avec notre van mais on a failli ne pas arriver car la route traverse des rivière et dans certains trous sa a tapé fort contre le parc choc.. le camping est gratuit mais sans douche. et les sources thermales c'est une honte d'avoir fais sa comme sa. L'endroit est sale, les bains ne sont pas naturel, ce sont de petites maison sans lumière avec un bain creusé dedans, on dirais les toilettes public. Je suis très déçu, car le paysage est magnifique mais les sources décevante. Je déconseille

It might be because of low season but only one pool is working and it's in a realy discusting state (the water). If you're going here in this time of year go directly here, there is evrything to clean and close the thub. It will take a few hours to fill it up.

Beginning of January with our 2x2 van we could cross the river (no water but huge rocks) we may need high clearance to go there.
If it rains it might be very hard to cross back.

Totally dry road all the way up to the hot tubs. Some narrow sections and tight turns but we made it in our 6.6m long van.

After a realy long cycling day this place was paradise! The campsite is 900m before de hot pool and a bit less than 3km from the road. River crossing was ok and just some short sandy section.
The hot pool were hot and clean, nobody around i could bath necked in front of mountain whit the door of the cabin open , so relaxing!
the campsite is very nice, it was a water pipe with water flowing but no toilet a all.

Dirty, yes!
Pros:
- water was very hot
- We were completly alone
- Beautiful road and landscape (though it was a little narrow in some parts and it is a dirt road)
- Free!

we made it to the water pools with 2×2, but in the wet season you will definitely need a 4x4.
however, they build some weird little buildings on top of the pools, without windows and not very clean...
that makes bathing in natural pools impossible, at least in dry season.
wouldn't recommend this place at all

Report Check-In

still being built but lovely people and a nice set up with tables and areas to have an asado. we didn't fancy the baths having been to Fiambalá but went on a nice walk up from the baths. 20 peso for two people and car

Amazing place to stay for a night....Camping municipal is impossible to reach right now without 4x4 (sand and creek in front of it). Our Ducato is 4,5 m long and it wasn't easy to get there. Wouldn't recommend anyone with a longer vehicle to go there....rocks above and part of road missing!
The bathtubs aren't worth it to walk up there....but see for yourself...Still an awesome place in the nature!

till municipal camping there is one sharp turn. Our motohome 7m long passed it succesfully. Now dry season and no need 4x4. It may be necessary when rainy season. After the municipal camp looks like impossible to climb to the thermal. keep walking -) there is small private cabinets and free of charge. If you have a big rig not worth to climb up after municipal camp.

Hard work getting our heavy touring bikes up to the 'campground', but ultimately worth it. Nice hot water and no-one else around all evening and night (Monday).
Road very rough. Definitely 4x4 needed.

Report Check-In

unfortunatley the road is destroyed by the river. About 50 meter of the road is gone. We didnt even consider trying to cross it with our 4x4. Maybe it will be possible when it dries out more, if you use some hours to clean the biggest rocks in the river.
We walked up to the hot springs, and it was worth it.
parked the car in the road before the river. nice and flat. Locals didn't seem to mind. They said it was a very safe pkace. One local even left his moped there with the keys in the ignition.

Nice and quiet spot - we spent the night here and were alone. 4 working bath-pools. Water and tubes looked very clean. We let the water out and refilled two tubes for an early morning bath. Great view. After the rain we recommend a 4x4 for the drive (flowing river crossing).

Report Check-In

4x4 is certainly not necessary. The last piece by the way is a bit bumpy. The bathhouse is OK but not our favorite. We spend a quiet night up here.

Absolutely great place to have a warm bath after some dirty camping time. The bathrooms are super clean and there are brooms so you can leave them like this. You should definitely avoid driving up here in the dark and better stay for the night. We managed to drive up without troubles with an old regular car, it might change when it has been raining. When we arrived at sunset the last persons were leaving and the first came when we got up in the morning (not too early). Don't forget to buy some wine and candles in the last town you pass by!

We were picturing a 7m long rig trying to drive up here as we approached... To attempt such a thing would be insanity! But no, you don't need 4x4. We were parked up here with a Nissan micra. We passed through a small river on the road to get here (it's been raining the last few days).

I would think even reaching the municipal camping would be somewhat challenging for bigger rigs - the entrance and obstacles inside the camping would present a challenge. But hey, it's your rig :)

The hot springs are actually really nice. Not quite hot enough for our liking, but you can drain and fill the tubs yourself so you can make sure the water is fresh. The tubs were very clean. We liked it.

Free, quiet, lovely.

The place is nice, even if there are only indoor pools. I wouldn't recommend to drive up without 4x4 as it will be more stress than just doing this nice view 10-15 minutes walk up. The totally quiet campground below looks good with its nice trees, but has no facilities and only the water from nearby river. It is hard to drive into the campground without 4x4 as the entrance is washed out so we just stayed in front.

Report Check-In

the road is now very difficult without 4×4.
we had to stop at the camping and the way back was a little bit stress !.
Not for big rigs (we are jumper 7m long, 2m large and 3m high no 4wd)

perfekt stop on the road to Belen or Cafayate. We was totaly allone and take a nice 37C warm bath. Free!

Report Check-In

Those Termales are not abandoned. They are public bathhouses free for everyone. 4 are fixed up right now, clean and no graffiti. You have the little bathhouse to yourself. We also camped here and liked the place. Big rigs probably need to park at the campground a few hundred meters down the road as the road is tight and not much space to park by the Termales anyways.

Very disappointed with this place. There is warm water, but it's inside s couple of concrete huts with graffiti and litter everywhere. Late afternoon we were the only ones there, but late evening and into the night, locals came up on motorcycles. Track to get there is narrow and rough. We are 6m x 2.2m x 3.3m and just made it through with a few centimetres clearance from the rocks. The worst bit is near the top - if you don't fit through the gap in rocks, there will be some challenging reversing manoeuvres to get back down :-) There is a long-drop toilet (in one of the sheds near the derelict house), plus the thermal water, otherwise no facilities. Free.

Three baths have been fixed up, the water was perfect, no sulpur.
Very quiet and few visitors. Access: see previous entry.

Awesome place to stay. There are two old hot tubes left that are clean and get permanentely fresh hot water. In front of the old houses is a table with shelter from wind and rain. great view over the valley.

Deserted hot springs, 4 km off ruta 40. The road gets rougher the further you drive. High clearance recommended. We didn't have any problems to get here but bigger rigs than ours (6x2x3 meters) may have problems with the sharp turns and rocks overhead. Very quiet, no facilities and old and pretty run down bathtubs with 37degrees warm water. Nice view down the valley. Free. If you don't want to drive all the way up, there is a camping municipal about halfway that looked decent. We don't know any more details...
