As locals, we have the good fortune to be able to try several different hot springs. We have been to Baldi and Los Lagos and like Ecotermales the best, by far! The best part of Ecotermales is that they require reservations. This results in low...More

Absolutely beautiful thermal waters. We visited for the second time recently. We were happy to see one of the friendly and hospitable owners again. The supper buffet was delicious. If you’re in the area, this should be a place you visit!!

Spent the morning relaxing in the hot pools. We arrived just after 10:00 and stayed until 14:00. The mornings are quiet so it was a good time to visit. Definitely recommended, beautiful grounds.

We loved this hot springs park! Beautiful setup, lush greens and wonderful hot spring pools. The price included a lunch served by a friendly staff. Would defiantly go back!

We just went on our own schedule, you don’t need to be there exactly at 10. On the other hand, we were and almost had the place to ourselves.
