Attractions

On the way to the city of Baños, we will enjoy our voyage through the Avenue of the Volcanoes, being able to admire (if weather conditions allowed) the following: Cotopaxi, Rumiñahui, Los Ilinizas, Corazón, Pichincha, besides the city of Ambato.
Baños, meaning "Baths" in Spanish, is a small town full of bustling tourists looking for a nice temperate weather and exciting trips and expeditions around the area. Baños is surrounded by numerous waterfalls (where the town gets its name from), cloud forests (ideal for bird watching) and wild orchids. The town is also known as “the door to the Amazon rainforest”. It offers a great opportunity for hiking, mountain biking, rafting, etc.

AMAZON JUNGLE (TENA)

Tena, the capital of the Napo Province, is an attractive and quiet city in the Amazon rainforest, known as the “cinnamon capital" of Ecuador. Tena is a popular launching point for jungle, kayaking and rafting tours in Ecuador's Amazon rainforest region. Tena and its surrounding indigenous communities are also bases for many volunteers working for reforestation projects. For a rainforest city, Tena's climate is surprisingly comfortable and cooler than the jungle to the east, as it is 500M above sea level. There's rainfall year-round. The heaviest rains come in April, May, and June, but even in this very wet time it doesn't necessarily rain every day or all day when it does rain. The Napo River is Ecuador’s major Amazon River tributary and the defining characteristic of the Napo Province.
