The hydrothermal value of Termas de Papallacta’s Hot Springs is, thanks to Papallacta’s location, between two volcanoes – Cayambe and Antisana. The temperature of the thermal baths varies between 30 and 70 Celsius degrees (86 and 158 Fahrenheit degrees). Papallacta’s thermal waters contain sulfates, sodium, calcium, chloride and traces of magnesium, all of which are odorless and colorless but have a slightly salty taste. Besides improving intestinal function, the baths’ curative properties are also anti-allergenic, anti-inflammatory, diuretic and anti-rheumatic.
