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.

Do not stop on the first notice that encourage to take a bus or a chiva
