Argentina is the thermal land par excellence. It hosts more than 40 thermal centers, worldwide acknowledged not only by the properties of their water but also for the outstanding infrastructure that complement them.
Waters have volcanic, magmatic or telluric origins and they are enhanced by the diverse minerals, existing from North to South. They are recommended for the treatment of diverse illness of the skin, bones, digestive, breathing, or circulative systems, as well as for relax and beauty treatments.
In the North, there are 17 centers in the middle of amazing natural landscapes. We may quote Termas de Reyes in Jujuy and Termas de Río Hondo in Santiago del Estero.
