Termas El Amarillo
At a highway junction about 25 kilometers southeast of Chaitén, a gravel road turns north for five kilometers to the forested, no-frills hot springs of Termas El Amarillo. Admission to the outdoor pools costs US$3 per person; it also has walk-in campsites (US$6) and a restaurant.
At the junction itself, Residencial Marcela (tel. 065/264442, US$9/17 s/d with shared bath and breakfast) also has cabañas with private bath and kitchen (US$33 for up to six persons).
