Coming from New Zealand we are used to hot pools with slides and all the extras. There are two sections we camped at the older pools which needed to be filled when we got there and were not boiling. Paying 10 sol to use the...More

Lares is a small village in a beautiful landscape. From Cuzco it will take you a couple of hours. First you take the bust to calca and a second bus will take you to lares. From here it's a short walk to the thermal baths....More

My family visited Lares during a holiday break in Peru and I was extremely disappointed. The pools were extremely overcrowded with locals as well as several large trekking groups (as that is where they camp after doing the Lares Trek) and the water was filthy!...More

Our visit to Lares hot springs was arranged as part of our Lares trek, booked through Alpaca Expeditions. The day started with a very early morning pick-up in Pisaq. The drive was along a very scenic and sometimes nerve-wrecking road. The pools ranged from cool...More

Our tour group visited the springs after hiking 4 days on the Lares Trek. It could not have been a more perfect ending. I'm not sure what's in the water (or who's been in the water!), but at that point, it didn't matter. Just warm...More

Ended the Lares Trek here in February. After ten hours of hiking in the rain, we arrived here to relax. It was amazing. Sure, I'm biased because we were cold and exhausted, but I've visited other hot springs in Peru, Guatemala and Costa Rica and...More

We decided to visit the Lares hot springs on our last full day, our accommodation (GringoWasi) offers a tour here that seemed the perfect way to relax after a weak of sight seeing. The hot springs are a bit of a drive and it took...More

It is ideal for camping o the area, enjoying the hot springs at night and leave around noon for lunch on the Lares town or on the Sacred Valley. They have lockers for clothes and bathrooms with changing areas to make the visit more confortable.

Visually stunning, authentic and locals showering al fresco. A beautiful drive organized from our innkeepers at "GringwoWasi B&B" in Huarocondo. The drive alone from Sacred Valley to Lares was worth the trip...the hot springs were gorgeous, clean and ultra friendly. A must stop for a...More

I didn't visit the hot springs, but I went to the town square and had their famous ice cream. I sat in the square and watched a wedding in a beautiful church. The fruit man had sugarcane freshly cut, so I had some.
