After hotel pickup, your tour begins with the 45-minute drive from San Pedro de Atacama to the Puritama Hot Springs (Termas de Puritama), 18.5 miles (30 km) north of town. When you arrive, pay the entrance fee (own expense) and head to the changing rooms to put on your bathing suit. Then simply enjoy the pools at your leisure; you have about two hours here before returning to town.

At an elevation of 11,483 feet, (3,500 meters), Puritama is made up of eight thermal pools with a temperature of 92°F (33.5°C); the pools are linked by a wooden walkway so you can easily walk between them. Spend a bit of time in all of them, or find your favorite and settle in for a long soak.

Springing up from one of the driest places on the planet, the waters of Puritama contain all kinds of minerals that are said to soothe various ailments. Its meso-thermal sodium-sulfur water is filled with potassium, lithium, calcium, magnesium, chlorine, sulfates and boron, and when you immerse yourself in the water, those elements are thought to help to stimulate your circulatory and digestive systems and revitalize your skin.

When your time is up, you’ll be returned to San Pedro de Atacama for hotel drop-off.
