Puritama Hot Springs Atacama Desert Chile
From the Alto Atacama Lodge and Spa I went on a morning day trip to the Hot Springs at Puritama. The waters were warm, but not hot in any imagination. The grounds were beautiful and very clean. The water was clear and warm. It was a chilly day, about 65-70 degrees F outside. The water was free flowing and the rocks on the bottom were easy to navigate. I had a towel and the lodge provided a thick robe to use.
One of the guides drove me to the hot springs from the Alto Atacama Lodge and Spa. There were two other clients from the lodge their who hiked down into the springs property from the hills above. I did not know this was an option or I would have joined the hike.
I spent time soaking at a couple of spots, seeking a warmer place. The small waterfalls were a very nice place to sit and let the water pound on your back. The decks were warm, but not hot to the feet this time of year. There were clean changing rooms with lockers and clean bathrooms on site. I think on summer mornings and little warmer, but not hot weather, it may be more enjoyable.
Our guide from the lodge prepared a cheese and fruit plate for us after our soaking. He also included a choice of wines and other beverages.
None the less the grounds were beautiful and it was a relaxing experience considering the harsh desert surroundings.
