Beautiful outdoor natural surroundings at these hot springs - various pools to choose from with differing characteristics. Just 3km from Chivay - colectivos leave constantly for 1 sole per passenger or private taxi for 5-6 soles. Great place overall!!

Given the fact that there is not much to do in Chivay after you've finished the canyon tour around 12pm I decided to visit La Calera. It's an easy 45 min. walk from the town center. Probably because it is rainy season only 3 pools...More
