Aguas Calientes

This is the hot springs or termas found in Parque Nacional Puyehue on Lago Puyehue which was just beautiful with islands and waterfalls and hot springs. Mostly uninhabited, mostly park, and the road going over into Argentina. We are having to do most of our internet blogging from a cafe at the Teatro del Lago in Frutillar Bajo on Lago Llanquihue. So please forgive my sloppy hurried posts as I have to share the computer time.
This is the indoor part of the hot springs. The water was very hot! probably over 140F coming into the pool and the pool was probably around 110F. Pretty warm for a cold rainy afternoon. $15 per person to swim

This is the outdoor pool next to the river.
 A bridge over the river- looks a little safer than the ones at Las Cascadas!

 Picnic tables
 This is where the hot water bubbles up and is piped into the pools
This is the lake with islands and waterfalls

The clouds and rain have not lifted for 5 days so all the mountain tops are shrouded in clouds and everything is so dreary and rainy. the pictures just don't do it justice.


  1. Still lovely even with the dreary look. Just curious, how big is the pool? Can people do laps in it?

  2. Looks kind of mystical. =)

  3. Sure, Maggie
    Come on down and you and Andrew can do laps together!
    It was a cool,misty, foggy day which did make it look kind of mystical, Suzi!
