We took a private taxi and arranged a pick up later in the afternoon. If you do this, agree the price and be firm that you will pay the whole amount on the return journey - nothing upfront. It’s 11km to the road so a...More

We went in early February. Our guide drove us down the STEEP road. We were the only four there. The temperature in the various pools ranges from warm-plus to warm-minus. Pleasant. Nice bathhouse (with showers and toilets). The views getting there are spectacular, but no...More

If you plan to visit the hot springs please walk your way down and up. Don't get on any type of vehicle. We had a terrible accident. Thank god we made it out alive. This was like 500 meters from getting to the hot springs.

There were no ATVs working when we went and the steep hike in and out were worth it. While they have made the pools, they have done it tastefully. You are sitting in this outrageous canyon listening to the river down below and enjoying the...More
