"Banos: Ecuador's Adventure Capital" Top 5 Page for this destination Baños by Kindra

Baños Travel Guide: 195 reviews and 864 photos


Banos is a pretty touristy place and I was warned in advance that it wasn't all it was cracked up to be. Which is why I was so delightfully surprised at how much i LOVED IT. The fact that Banos has so many activities to fill the day with meant I was never bored and always doing something new, different and exciting. Banos is not really the culture capital of Ecuador but it has a beautiful surrounding landscape full of jungle, waterfalls, hot thermal springs and volcanoes where you can hike, take chiva rides, bridge jump, bike, dune buggy, canyon and bathe. You can also enjoy some of Banos' fabulous food and drink some fresh cane juice or try the sticky taffy that is being made on the doorsteps everywhere.
