Most people will come here for the hot springs, but the vegetation is also very nice with some enormous New Zealand tree ferns.
There are a number of hot springs with the one at the top of the valley the coolest and cloudiest. As you...More
Absolutely stunning hot springs!
Changing rooms, showers, and even a small museum to explain the diverse ecology and geology of the Azores!
Best part was standing under the waterfall and feeling the lovely 75 degree geothermal water splash down on me.
Try to go early....More
Very nice location and setting but not big and so can get busy especially when a coach arrives!
Two small warm pools and one cold pool.
The pools are nice, and the setting in the trees makes it a great place. However as only a...More
This was supposed to be a highlight on the island. Out family of four (two teenagers) were all disappointed. As far as waterfalls, this is the smallest one I’ve seen. As far as naturally heated “caldeiras” this is definitely not your best choice. At $8...More
Had a great time at the hot springs in Caldeira Velha. Unfortunately 2 pools were down for maintenance which meant it was a bit crowded at times. They could do with some more changing rooms and toilets - there were queues for both.
They suggested us to go here and explore the beauty of the wells. We went swimming and enjoying the baths for hours. Start with the last one (the waterfall) as this is the coldest. You build up next to the 37 degrees baths in the...More
Although you can pay to just walk around or to walk and do the hot spring pools, you’d be crazy not to do the pools, as they were the most interesting part of the area. There are changing rooms and storage lockers; the second set...More
Several pools of varying temperature in a lovely gorge covered with very verdant vegetation including beautiful trees. Changing rooms, showers and toilets. Space to picnic. Bring flip flops for walking between pools. The waterfall looks lovely but is not over warm! Entry charge is worth...More
This place is smaller than I thought. There is an entrance fee with or without bathing. I believe it was 8 EU per person. Short walk to the pools where you will find change cabins and washrooms. Not a lot of places to sit and...More

Hi! You will definitely love the Azores if you are into fantastic sunning scenery, friendly people and unique attractions. It could reach 71 degrees, but be prepared for some rain - in fact the Azores is known for having 4 seasons in a day! As far as I know, the Caldeira Velha is open every day. You will be visiting at the end of the dry / main tourist season, but will find that most 'attractions' are still open. I say 'attractions' because I feel The Azores is mainly for those who love nature, water sports and food! You won't find Theme Parks and specific activities for children - or at least I didn't. Whale and dolphin watching is a must. I would strongly recommend that you take a couple of guided van tours - that way you will see all that The Azores has to offer and learn so much. Pedro from Belazorica Azores Tours will not let you down - small group tours to all parts of the island. Enjoy!
