If you are staying nearby, be sure to arrive here early to avoid the crowds. The springs are lovely and I thought that they were clean. We arrived at about 10:30 and there was only one local man there. By 11am the minibuses full of tourists who had a visit to the hot springs included in some sort of package started arriving and it became quite busy - not that I resent this, and I enjoyed chatting to some of them, but it was just so peaceful practically having the place to ourselves beforehand! The water is heated by underground volcanic activity and is very warm. They hire towels for 6 soles each. We caught a taxi back up the steep hill to our accommodation in Yanque for 10 soles.

We almost let the bad reviews turn us off visiting. So glad we did visit. Only a 15 minute walk downhill (admittedly dusty) to the pools in a beautiful valley. We were the only visitors. We walked across the suspension bridge to the three pools which are covered in shade cloth. Not smelly, not dirty (but not designed to western standards). Apparently the pools are drained every night. The water was comfortably hot. We wore our swimmers under our clothes, and used the change rooms before returning - they were basic, but fine. We asked the girls there to call us a taxi to return to our hotel. A lovely way to spend an hour or so, though go early afternoon as once the sun goes behind the mountains, it does get cold.

Even the 5 dollars one pays to get in is excessive for the current state of this place. The changing rooms smell like urine, dirty toilet papers everywhere... not a pleasant place to enjoy hot springs. Skip it!

I was warned this location is not very clean. When we visited, we were charged s/15 including for small children. All the indoor, ceramic pools were emptied of water. The 6 outdoor springs were all crowded with upwards of 10 people including many, many splashing children. You could not see through the water. It was warm but not hot. Shortly before we left, hot water started bubbling in. No lighting so as it got dark, it was impossible to see although they don't close until an hour after dark. Dingy lockers and changing rooms, no toilets. The other side of the swinging bridge looked a little less crowded, but there was no way to take children across it safely since it was very unstable with a very low rope railing. We were short on time to get anywhere else, but even locals told us to drive to Amaru next time.

The pools are located at the bottom of the hill: one covered pool with changing booths, then 3 small round pools across the creek via an Indiana Jones bridge which sets the scene. Facilities are basic, water is clean and could be warmer, still enjoyable after a long day. The view is amazing, and worth the 15 soles entrance fee. Use caution as the stones can be slippery !
