Not far from here, you'll reach the Termas Colinas Hot Springs. Relax in any of the seven pools with temperatures ranging from 130ºF to 86ºF, heated by the nearby volcano.

Absolutely loved the experience! Pick-up and drop-off were quite prompt. Our guide Alexis was super friendly and told us historical and geographical facts about the Cajón :) He took the time to narrate in English, Spanish and Portuguese. It was a lovely trip and I'd love to go with them to other places in Santiago soon!

Die Tour war sehr gut organisiert. Hat alles reibungslos funktioniert. Gabriel, der Guide war sehr sympathisch und angenehm. Er hat kompetent über die Gegend und Chile informiert. Insgesamt ein gelungener Trip!
