Aguas Termales De Yura - Other Activity Arequipa - Peru

After trekking through the canyons or climbing Misti, your muscles just might need some pure relaxation. The hot springs (aguas termales) at Yura could be just the remedy you need. A handful of enclosed pools (29-34ºC / 84-93ºF) are within walking distance of each other. On the gate, each pool lists the temperature and medicinal properties: good for skin, muscle, bone or other ailment. Each one charges its own entry fee. The pools are cleaned every day. The most tranquil days are Monday-Thursday. Sunday is very busy.
