La Calera Hot Springs
La Calera Hot Springs information
Lonely Planet review
If you’ve just bussed or driven in from Arequipa, a good way to acclimatize is to stroll 3km to La Calera Hot Springs and examine the canyon’s slopes (surprisingly shallow at this end) alfresco while lying in the famous pools. This isn’t your average shopping mall spa (forget the pampering), but the water’s warm, the setting’s idyllic and you’ll be spontaneously entertained by the whoops of zip-liners as they sail overhead. Colectivos from Chivay cost S1 to S2.
