Great day with my tour guide Pedro ! He was a really good friend during that day, very helping. We had a nice little walk together, then the hot Springs were perfect, and really beautiful. I also got a massage, which was the cherry on the cake !

What a fun and memorable day in Papallacta. It all started on the positive side with Pedro. Punctual, he was in time to pick me up from the place I was staying, we then started our journey to Papallacta. The driving was safe and responsible, and he was super active explaining any interesting point/thing we saw. Arriving in Papallacta, I booked a set of massage, walked a few miles to know the place and ended up the day in a very fun way, we went in a sport fishing activity which I didn’t plan but it was memorable. I caught few trouts, an went to a restaurante to prepare it, fresh food. LOVED IT.
