INCA JUNGLE TREK

SANTA TERESA HOT SPRINTS

COCALMAYO - SANTA TERESA

Location
These hot springs are located 1,600 meters above sea level and consist of 4 thermal baths. The complex delivers the quality of any Western Spa with the added luxury that it is surrounded by the Inca jungle, at the base of a mountain and is situated alongside the Urubamba river.

Hot Pools
Each one varies in depth, size and temperature, ranging from 40ºC to 44ºC. Ailments such as, bone, joint and muscle pain alongside skin issues is helped by a dip in these medicinal waters. The cold water supplied around the baths is channeled from Uripata lagoons which offers a refreshing contrast to the heat of the pools. There are toilets, changing rooms, lockers and showers as expected, however, another bonus is this place has a large outdoor bar and coffee spot where you can purchase drinks and food.

It was created by Law 12849 of October 11, 1957 during the government of President Manuel Prado Ugarteche. Since pre Inka and Inka times the district of Santa Teresa was populated by farmers and in Inca times the cultivation of coca AND CAFE was emphasized. At the time of the Spanish invasion, mining was carried out in the Yanama and Totora areas, a clear example is the Victoria mine. During the republic in this district, the peasant struggle against the landowners took place, which led to their expulsion and the birth of the agrarian reform.

In 1998, a huayco descended the Aobamba River and completely destroyed the old capital, at that time located at the foot of the confluence of the Salkantay, Saqsara and Vilkanota rivers. After that tragedy, the town was rebuilt 50m higher in a flatter and safer area.
