Ruta de las cascadas, Banos

4.5
#1 of 7 in Trails in Ecuador
Cycle from waterfall to waterfall along Ruta de las cascadas, a 61 km (37 mi) road that's perfectly suited to adventures on two wheels. The road winds its way between Banos and Puyo, through mountains, canyons, and lush valleys. Stop at Cascada de Agoyan to admire the route's number one attraction, a twin waterfall that you can view from a high bridge or by taking a gondola ride from the fall's base. You can observe much of the route's best scenery in the 18 km (11 mi) between Banos and El Diablo.

  • Very beautiful view on all the road and most beautiful waterfalls even. Perfect for people who want to only look at the perfection of mother nature or who want to make esportes radicais

  • We did a bus teip for 5$. Except for the Cascada del Diablo which comes right at the end of the tour there is absolutely nothing to see. the stops are short and mostly super commercial.  more »
  • US aircraft rent a buggy and bike the next day. Turns out that the road and concrete almost to the end. Very little interest in bike / buggy so. Not to mention buses and cars which double you on the roads of mountains... a Board: take a bus or a chiva!
