La Casa del Arbol, Banos

Lookout · Landmark
Swing out over a forest climbing up the side of a misty mountain at La Casa del Arbol. The iconic swing hangs from a treehouse perched on what seems like the edge of the world. Hike the undulating 9 km (5.6 mi) trail to the swing, or take the local bus. If you choose to hike, try to set out early to beat the morning crowds. Prepare for a long wait, as plenty of Ecuadorian tourists visit the swing to get their photo taken. Look for the miniature children's zipline nearby. Work out when and for how long to visit La Casa del Arbol and other Banos attractions using our handy Banos day trip planning website.

  • Excellent views, fun atmosphere and teh best and original adventure swing in Banos. Look like you are 10000 miles up (you are way above the valley!) and listen to everyone scream and laugh doing the.....  more »
  • The views were stunning!! Can be cloudy in early afternoon so go early or near sunset. There are several swings to enjoy but always busy so just enbrace it and enjoy the time spent! $2 entrance fee...  more »
  • Very pleasant place to visit it on sunny days since you have a very good view, when entering the tree house you have to pay 1 dollar of entry. You can get there by public transport (bus) are not very....  more »
  • Truly the best swings I've been so far. I even like the one that is not on the tree more, and it is smaller line there. Make sure you are not on holiday or weekend, cause it's fully packed. Like on the picture😂
  • The place is beautiful but they don't had toilet paper, when I asked for it, instead of giving a solution or apologizing for not having paper, they were rude and told me why I ask for toilet paper if I only pay $1 to enter. The restrooms overall had a bad maintenance. Sad to see how such a popular place has this awful administration.
  • Very nice scenery. We couldn’t see the top of the volcano. It wasn’t crowded so we could use the swings right away. Great instagram posts but if you’re looking for an adrenaline twist go to the other two swings
  • Must visit, totally worth it, entrance is $1 Fun for adults and kids. Famous for the Treehouse and "End of the World" swing. Other swings and small canopy for children available. Cafeteria with snacks, drinks and beer available. If you go to Baños you must pass through this place.
  • Beautiful place! Tickets are around 2 dollars, great place to hang out! And try on the swing at the edge of the world
