How is it possible that some men can be craftsmen and some others cannot? Are they born with a gift or do they just need to awaken that instinct we all have inside? In Santiago del Estero, it seems that the second option is right.
It is well known that the native peoples have always developed skills that have enabled them to survive in unfavorable conditions. The entire region of Santiago del Estero has had its own settlers who, using the elements provided by nature, managed to live.
Talking about thermal tourism has always meant Termas de Río Hondo. First, it was said to be for senior citizens, then the place became popular with youngsters. Nowadays, the hot springs belong to everyone.
The thermal springs of Río Hondo are located on the banks of the Dulce River. According to many, the biggest thermal city in Argentina is formed from its natural groundwater layers. The services rendered together with the hotel facilities, in harmony with the water resources, show a tourism that combines health, pleasure and recreation.
The city of Termas de Río Hondo is located just a few kilometers away from the place where a famous dam was built. Bearing the same name as the city, its aim was to collect the water from streams and rivers of the Argentinian northwest so that the water would not disappear as it ran into the plains of Santiago del Estero.
In order to accomplish its vital cycle, the dorado moves up and down the river to spawn, so it is quite common to see these fish trying to jump over the dam to go to the other side of the river.
