Urmiri Hot Springs
These hot springs near La Paz are famous for their therapeutic qualities. Located deep in the mountains in a steep canyon with just one entrance that protects them from the altiplano winds, three fresh hot springs bubble up into two distinct pools and other small baths inside the hotel located here. The composition is a curious mix of magnesium, sulfur, limestone, and iron that is recommended for treatment of chronic rheumatism, arthritis, gout, nervous disorders, depression, physical therapy, lupus and other maladies. The Hotel Gloria administers the hot springs and has a public swimming pool, sauna, romance baths, and individual baths. Outside the hotel there are no villages or other types of touristy infrastructure or services.
