Termas Geometricas hot springs near Coñaripe, Chile. "These hot pools are as good as any I've ever been in. We went on a cold rainy day and it was mind blowing. Steam and mist everywhere. All of the pools are set in a rocky gorge. There seem to be about 10-15 pools of different temperatures, and two freezing cold waterfalls to quench yourself in." Dan G. on Trip Advisor
