"Hot springs" Papallacta by toonsarah
Papallacta Travel Guide: 18 reviews and 153 photos
We enjoyed a soak in the hot springs, a very good dinner and a short walk on one of the resort’s extensive network of trails. With more time we would have wandered further afield – a two night visit here would not be too long.
We slept in a lovely wooden cabin with a small hot pool right outside. If you’re on a budget you can still visit Papallacta as buses from Quito serve the town (though the hot springs are some distance from the road down a mud track) and there are much cheaper accommodation options. But we enjoyed our splurge and I highly recommend a stay at the Termas if you can manage it. Just bring a warm jumper as it gets very chilly here at night, being considerably higher even than Quito, at 3,225 metres.
This is one of a number of small pages about a variety of places we visited on our holiday in Ecuador. There is more information about the country as a whole and our experiences there on my overview page, linked above.
