After a brief tour around the facilities, we asked the staff about the most appropriate procedure for our own bodies and we got ready to take the first baths. There are mud therapy and cold and hot spring water areas outdoors. Inside, semi open and screened pools offering hydrotherapy caught our eye. It was at this sector where we chose to spend more time. The pleasure of feeling the wáter spurts massaging the stressed parts of our bodies is unequaled.
We were very careful to watch the time devoted to each of the treatments and we rested on the comfortable deck chairs available for such purpose in between baths.
The hot spring waters emerge from the soil at high temperatures that must be constantly regulated. Elements such as calcium, borum, sodium, magnesium and iron guarantee the release of muscular stress and tiredness.
We came across a coquettish restaurant and coffee store with a complete menu full of delicacies and drinks to hydrate after the baths. There is also de possibility of staying overnight and enjoy a longer spa treatment. As well, visitors may take advantage of the tours available in the surroundings to make contact with nature. These include mountain bike rides, horseback rides, fishing outings, hiking along trails leading to magnificent cascades and lakes.
As we returned to Villarrica, we felt grateful for an excellent day during which we felt we granted an award to our bodies with the beneficial hot spring waters of this highly praised Chilean nook.
