Tatio Puritama

The excursion to Tatio Geysers & Puritama Hot Springs departs from the different hotels around San Pedro and then heads towards northeast, increasing altitude gradually till we reach 4.320 metres above the sea level (m.a.s.l.) in the Geothermal field of El Tatio. Once there we visit different geysers and walk around the field, after which we have breakfast and relax enjoying the most beutiful sunrise ever. On the way back, you can observe the flora and fauna in Putana River as we cross the altiplano. We then drive through Puritama, where you can relax and enjoy the Hot Springs and have an aperitif
