Aguas Termales Calientes - Spa/Hot Springs Tacna - Peru

Note: In early January 2012, a flashflood caused by a huayco (a river formed in a dry gulch) destroyed the complex. It is not known when it will be rebuilt.

For those wanting to get out of the city for a bit and relax, the hot spring baths of Aguas Termales Calientes are a good option. The waters of the baths, which are 36ºC (97ºF) to 40ºC (104ºF), are said to have medicinal qualities, relieving arthritis, nerve and skin ailments. The complex has a large, kidney-shaped pool, as well as double and individual tubs. Onsite is a restaurant and hotel; lodging and meals are also available in the nearby village, Pachía.
