BANOS RAFTING ADVENTURE OVERNIGHT
Baños town originally named Baños de Agua Santa, commonly referred to as Baños, is an Ecuadorian city in Tungurahua province. Baños is the second most populated city in the province, after Ambato city, and is a major tourism town. It is known as the “Gateway” to the Amazon region, as it the last big city still located in the mountains before reaching the jungle.
The atmosphere is laid back and relaxed in this sub-tropical climate. Tourists love to come to Baños for outdoor activities like rafting, canyoning, horseback riding, canopy, mountain biking or hiking. There is a beautiful route through the most impressive waterfalls of Ecuador, “Ruta de las Cascadas”. At night the town is full of entertainment like pubs, restaurants and bars, all in walking distance. With this day tour you go rafting in the Pastaza River with level III/IV rapids, visit the “Swing to the End of the World” and you can take the optional canopy line “El Torpedo” ($ 20) or you can bungee jump off the bridge ($ 15).
