Ruta de las cascadas, Banos
(4.6/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
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. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Banos holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Ruta de las cascadas and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • It is something that you should do when you visit baths, you can not miss to see waterfalls and landscapes, guides are very encouraged and you have patience if you want to take pictures or do sports, will show you all and tell you the stories, you can go in the "Chivas" or in your car
