Termas de Papallacta, Papallacta
(4.4/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Relax in the naturally heated pools at Termas de Papallacta. The subterranean activity of one of Ecuador's many volcanoes heats the waters here, in pools ranging from 36-40 C (96-105 F). Take a dip and enjoy the view of the surrounding forested hills and the Andes in the background. Choose from shallow or deep warm pools, or circulate between the hot and cold water for the best relaxation experience.

  • Thoroughly enjoyed my first massage experience. Soaking, steaming, and then a full head, shoulder and back rub. Excellent technician. All very welcoming and calm. 
  • A weekend with family enjoying the remodeled baths actually very healthy and preferred

  • Hot Springs set amidst a beautiful landscape ... Total relaxation with swimming pools at different temperatures and even hot tubs. To not find too many people should go on weekdays. It's gorgeous relax in the warm waters and take in the scenery around!! Every time I go to Ecuador is a must!!

  • It's quite nice. I'd recommend to plan some time to go hiking as well. Unfortunately it was very foggy when I was there. It is usually rather cold, so bring appropriate clothing.
  • Excellent short trip from Quito, this place is beautiful and the thermal pools are extremely relaxing. A little pricey but worth it.
  • I love this place cuz. All swimmingpool are very clean,hot ♨ when I have time always go there :)
  • It is a wonderful place, specially at night when you have all the stars to cover you while you are in the hot pool. Wonderful experience!
  • Rooms are solid but not great. But once out of the room, the scenery is just awesome. Plenty of hot and cold water springs including many smaller communal pools around the property. We only stayed there one day but enjoyed every minute of it.
