While our bodies benefit from the mineral properties of the waters, the environment contributes its richness for pleasure to be complete.
It is a fascinating thing to wish to enter the world of warm waters that spring from the mountain and suddenly to find ourselves at one of the most traditional parks in the area near Pucón. Termas de Menetúe is located in a very pleasant nook in the Araucanía region and it welcomed us with open arms.
From the moment we got in, we could perceive a relaxed atmosphere where silence prevailed. After a short chat at the front desk, we got ready to enter the circuit and enjoy the “place of baths”, the meaning of “menetúe” in the Mapudungun tongue. Amidst native trees and flowers, the various pools and attractions of the venue appeared before us.
We chose one of the two outdoor pools immersed in and mingled with the local geographical features. They boast beautiful waterfalls. We sat on a rock bed for a few minutes. The water reached our necks and made us feel pleasantly warm. A soft breeze moved the nearby huge plants.
Afterwards, we went around the surroundings, which offered comfortable armchairs made of rustic wood, up to the indoor pools. We were welcomed by a cozy space, with a lit fireplace that invited us to take a bath and then lie on one of the deck chairs to read a book. We accepted the invitation and lost track of time while we stayed there and let our body manage the necessary relaxation point.
