El Tubo - Spa/Hot Springs Zorritos - Peru

If your idea of soaking in hot springs is a pure-water affair, then head for El Tubo. Here, when you exit the pools you’ll drip water, not mud. Although a different experience than the other nearby hot springs, these are another wondrous place to just soak away. The thermal waters of El Tubo are full of natural salts, which give them medicinal properties.
