"When in Ecuador - particularly..." Ecuador Favorite Tip by redbaron

Ecuador General: 76 reviews and 64 photos


Favorite thing: When in Ecuador - particularly in the capital of Quito - don't miss the Termas de Papallacta which can be reached by bus in about 2 hours. The bus ride alone is very exciting. But Papallacta is phenomenal: no less than 8 hot thermal pools each which a slightly different water temperature than the next one. Very popular on weekends so I recommend going during the week.

Fondest memory: My fondest memory would be the hospitality of the people. They are very helpful but it is still recommended to be careful when visiting the Ciudad Vieja section of Quito. Watch your pockets! The photo below was taken at the MITAD DEL MUNDO, a few miles north of Quito.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
