"Cycle from Banos to Rio Negra" Ecuador Things to Do Tip by windsorgirl

Ecuador Things to Do: 371 reviews and 740 photos

  Butterflies, Banos
by windsorgirl

You can rent a bicycle and a helmet in Banos and ride along a fairly level road to Rio Negra. The destination was not wonderful but the journey there was. You will pass lush mountain sides and waterfalls and green valleys with winding rivers, some rivers may even cross your path. We just took off our shoes and rolled up our pantlegs and walked the bikes through the water. Apart from the grand vistas you should also notice the beautiful orchids growing wild at the roadside and many colourful butterflies. You can throw your bike on a bus for the return trip.
