On our 3rd day, we arrived Santa Teresa. Our camp site was inside the hotspring center.  Yes, finally we could take a SHOWER!

Mariana and I really appreciated the architecture of this center. Mostly in natural and local materials, in a good harmony of the traditional and contemporary architecture. The most impressive thing was that this facility was public : the owner is the municipality of Santa Teresa.

The initiative of the municipality of Santa Teresa  to create this touristic facility for the municipal economy with a good taste of the design/architecture (which is quirte rare in general ) is very applaudable.
