My wife rode inside. After a tour of city with party music playing whole time, we headed into mountains. We enjoyed fire-juggling entertainers on top of hill, and free hot rum drinks, while looking down on lights of Banos. We even saw Tungurahua spit up some lava. The two-hour experience, including drinks and honor of helping push-start chiva, cost $3 each.
Other Activities in Banos Ecuador
You can go to a nice zoo (bears, birds, tortoises and more), rent an ATV, bicycle to nearby waterfalls or tunnels, party in dozens of bars, buy avocados for 20 cents, see a recent movie in your own private viewing room for $1.50 per person (bring all food and drinks you want) - and almost everything is within a few blocks of any hotel. Did I mention that Banos is beautiful, with a perfect climate year-round?
Baņos de Agua Santa, usually just called Baņos, is in Andes Mountains, at foot of volcano Tungurahua, in Ecuador, South America. A bus from Quito, eighty miles to north, will cost you less than five dollars.
