Three Fun Activities in Baños, Ecuador

The town of Baños is one of Ecuador’s top destinations. When you arrive at Baños for the first time, it’s easy to see why this beautiful place has attracted visitors for hundreds of years. Nestled in a valley on the flanks of Tungurahua Volcano, the surrounding scenery is absolutely stunning, the climate is wonderful, and the town has fantastic hot springs.

Those hot springs are especially nice for soaking at the end of a long, exciting day and Baños offers a host of adventurous activities. The following are just three of many fun activities to enjoy in Baños, Ecuador:

  •  Mountain biking: Ecuador is a great place for mountain biking. There are hundreds of fun dirt roads, most of them in places with fantastic mountain scenery. You might see glittering hummingbirds while riding around, especially near Baños, and can cycle beneath several waterfalls!
