Baños Things to See and Do

follow us

With striking natural beauty and a range of companies catering to the
adventuresome spirit, there's no shortage of things to do in Baños. You can rent a bike for the day and follow the mostly downhill road to Puyo through spectacular scenery and past several waterfalls, some of which splash onto your path. This can be a half-day or an all-day trip, depending on how fast you go and how far you take the path. To go all the way to Puyo is 60 kilometers (37 mi). Most travelers stop 17 kilometers (10.5 mi) down the road at the beautiful Pailón del Diablo waterfall.

Tour agencies fill pretty much every block in Baños offering every variety of adventure sports from swing jumping off bridges to rafting, canyoning and rock climbing. Spas are plentiful in Baños as well, so you can soothe your sore muscles after a long day of adventure sports with a massage or other rejuvenating treatment. Chiva tours to view the naturally illuminated Tungurahua Volcano depart every night and should only be taken on very clear nights.
