Banos

Nature Trails Sightseeing
A trip to Banos, a relatively small town in the picturesque Andean highlands, ensures plenty of chances for outdoor activities like horseback riding, hiking, climbing, canyoning, and mountain biking. The town thrives under the smoky peak of nearby Tungurahua volcano, making the whole area highly photogenic. Those looking for a more relaxing experience in a rustic setting will also appreciate a holiday in Banos, thanks to the many local hydrothermal springs. Teeming with visitors from around the world and packed with souvenir shops, restaurants, and hotels, little Banos boasts a big cosmopolitan heart and ranks among the most welcoming destinations in South America. Our Ecuador trip itinerary planner allows you to plan your trip to Banos and a wealth of other destinations big and small.
