Termas de Río Hondo is a city in the province of Santiago del Estero, Argentina. It has 27,838 inhabitants as per the 2001 census [INDEC]. It is located on the banks of the Dulce River, 65 km north of the provincial capital Santiago del Estero, near the artificial Río Hondo Lake.

The hot springs (Spanish: termas, Quechua: yacu rupaj) of the area have a temperature of over 30 °C (86 °F), and have made the town a popular spa resort for Argentines, who enjoy the waters recommended against high blood pressure and rheumatism. Two public pools, La Olla and the Pileta Municipal, are near the town centre, along with many well-regarded hotels and restaurants.

New investments done in the last years were the new Airport and Autodromo Termas de Rio Hondo, totally rebuilt to host MotoGP World Championship racing starting from April 2014. [1]
