Deserted hot springs, 4 km off ruta 40. The road gets rougher the further you drive. High clearance recommended.

Very quiet, no facilities and old and pretty run down bathtubs with 37degrees warm water. Nice view down the valley. Free. If you don't want to drive all the way up, there is a camping municipal about halfway that looked decent. We don't know any more details...
