In 2018 the Balneario de San Diego de los Baños became an exclusive wellness tourism service offered by the La Pradera International Health Center of Havana.
There are two wellness tourism packages offered by La Pradera. One spa package includes a thermal treatment and the second package is a tour through the thermal route – the Ruta de Agua to a variety of these health enhancing destinations via the use of the waters at these spas.
These new wellness tourism services at the spa focus on international and local patients who come for treatment after receiving consultation
Treatments at San Diego de los Baños:
- back pain,
- respiratory problems
- dermatological problems such as psoriasis
- digestive and renal problems
- massage therapy
The waters of San Diego de los Baños offer therapeutic treatments to improve the suffering of chronic illnesses that are difficult to treat with medications alone.
The water route project will include other spas in the future. There are approximately 13 other spas in Cuba, four of which are functioning and others require renovations before they are included in the Ruta de Agua.
Cuba is blessed with more than a 1,400 natural medicinal water springs
which could be developed into thermal spa centers. Medicinal waters have proven to be very attractive to international tourists and locals. In almost all of the provinces of Cuba, there is the possibility of developing this spa thermal culture for wellness and health tourism.
