Baños Travel Tips & Suggestions

I went to Banos in 1999 and loved it and hope to go back this year. I met the locals and this time I hope to learn Spanish there.

Visit the "Le Prechaun" bar -- great place. If it's slow, you might get a salsa lesson from the barkeepers.
My third time and still loved it, although the bus ride was a bit scary. Do not go if you're afraid of heights. Make sure when you are there at night take the chiva (bus) to the top of the mountain where the cross is. When you arrive they light a big fire, sing songs, and put on a good act twirling torches. Great spot to meet lots of foreigners -- American and European. Love the climate. I still recomend it.

I had a great time in Baños. Plenty of restaurants and bars, cheap clean hotels (as low as $4 per night), lots of outdoor activity. Been there twice and going again next year. I recommend it for anyone.

We found that Banos was the high spot on our vist to Ecuador.
