Actually, there are no boiling waters at all. Just sea water and few caves.

So why it is called so?

It is called so because when waves crashes into that holes a lot of white surf are produced and then it looks like water is boiling. Bizarre – shaped cliffs, natural rock sculptures makes this place really stunning.

The best time to visit Los Hervideros during high tides or big waves. During storms waves are really rough and sprays can be forced several metres into the air. Of course you do not have to wait for rough weather – the sight is really impressive even during calm days.

But if you want some adrenaline it is recommended to see the phenomenon during full moon to experience the full power of the crashing waves. Imagine night with full moon, you are standing on the cliff and hearing waves crashing and roaring below. It should be really amazing. But again, be careful if you come here at night.
