La Calera

The hot springs at La Calera are found in the Colca Valley, just a few minutes from Chivay. This spa is sought after by visitors after trips and hikes through the Colca Canyon due to its energy replenishing properties. Its 85 °C (185 °F) waters come from the Cotalluni volcano and contain minerals such as Sulfur and Iron, fantastic for the treatment of arthritis and rheumatism.
The complex has five spacious and clean pools as well as a small ethnographic museum.
