Why locals love it

Only a two hours driving distance separates Quito from these thermal baths, very popular among locals and foreigners. The scenery is stunning and the medical properties of its waters make people come to relieve their pains.

Why you should visit it

Papallacta is located in the dormant crater of the Chakana volcano, very near the Antisana volcano and on the slopes of the Eastern Andes mountain range. The landscape is marvelous, the infrastructure is complete with facilities for different budgets from backpackers to couples looking for a more private resort.

Special tip

To spend at least one night in one of the cabins with chimney and small thermal swimming pool.
