  • Thermal pools at Balneario

    Papallacta Things to Do

    At Termas de Papallacta you can choose to go to the more expensive Spa or to the pools at Balneario. I went to Balneario and the admission there was $7.50 (August 2013). To get a locker cost $0.50 extra, and you need to leave a $5 deposit for the key.I put a few things in a locker but other things I put in a basket which was provided, a basket you...

    Papallacta Things to Do

    When I came to Termas de Papallacta I noticed there was a short trail starting from there, so I decided to walk it before visiting the baths. The path is called Sendero de La Isla and it will take you for a walk along the small Río Papallacta. It is a nice walk with views of the surrounding mountains. It took 45 minutes to walk around the whole...

    Papallacta Restaurants

    I arrived to Hostería Pampallacta Termales in the afternoon. I had eaten snacks and a fruit salad on the bus but definitely wanted to eat something more before going to the thermal baths. So I ordered a chicken soup and a strawberry batido. I was told to take the seat were there was a heater, and that was good because it is cold in Papallacta. In...

  • Booking Your Tour

    Cuyabeno Transportation

    Their are plenty of travel agencies in Quito that offer tours to the jungle. I chose Cuyabeno because it was way off the beaten path and my trips to Baños and Tena didn't really feel too exotic because there were so many tourists. I chose Ecomontes Tours because the price was right, and it offered camping as part of its itinerary. Make sure you ask...

  • Birdwatching

    Cuyabeno Things to Do

    Our guide said that in our 8 days in the jungle, we would spot and identify at least 50 different species of birds. We easily surpassed that. I'm not much of a bird fan except for the famous and more exotic looking birds. We saw plenty of Macaws and even the rare harpy eagle. If you're a bird lover, you'll definitely get a heavy dose of birds. If...

    Tena Off The Beaten Path

    After visiting Cavernas Templo de Ceremonia I wanted to visit Cavernas Lagarto Matiri. To go there I first walked for 15 – 20 minutes along the Tena - Baeza road to the village Mondayacu. When I came to Mondayacu I met a man and asked for the way to Cavernas Lagarto Matiri. He told me to turn left after the school, but he also told me to ask in the...

    Tena Off The Beaten Path

    When I first arrived to Tena I asked at one of the travel agencies about tours to the caves near Tena. It didn’t seem like people usually asked for these tours, but a woman at the agency said that I could go on my own. She told me that Cuevas de Jumandi (the only one mentioned in the guidebook) was quite commercial and she advised me to go to...

    Baeza Transportation

    The same day I went to Baeza I had an appointment at Hospital Metropolitano in Quito. So in the morning I went there and had the pins taken out from my wrist. I was given local anesthesia and the doctor made two stitches. After buying medicine, iodine and bandage at the pharmacy I went out to stop a taxi in the street. The taxi driver wanted to...

  • From Baeza to Cascada San Rafael

    Baeza Transportation

    To go to Cascada San Rafael you shall take one of the buses passing Baeza for Lago Agrio and Coca. They pass by on the highway down in Baeza Colonial, 2 km from Baeza Nueva where I stayed. I only had a small backpack so it was okay to walk and it took around half an hour. When I came to “La Y” I didn’t have to wait many minutes before a bus headed...

    San Rafael Things to Do

    Cascada San Rafael is Ecuador’s highest waterfall. It is situated in Río Coca on the border between Provincia de Napo and Provincia de Sucumbios. I can’t really tell how high it is as that information is different in different books and on different web pages, but the figures I have seen are between 131 – 160 metres. The waterfall has got two...

  • From Cascada San Rafael to Quito

    San Rafael Transportation

    After breakfast, just after 8am, I went out to the road outside Hostería El Reventador and sat down to wait for a passing bus. It is the Quito – Lago Agrio road that passes the hotel so eventually a bus from Lago Agrio to Quito would pass. I waited around 35 minutes until a bus came and luckily I got a seat. Further along the road the bus stopped...

    After I had arrived to Hostería Reventador it was time to eat lunch before going to Cascada San Rafael. I ordered the set lunch menu, which was $5. The soup was good with lots of potato and vegetables. For main course it was rice, a potato cake, a quite small piece of meat (with a good sauce) and some salad.

    Cotundo Things to Do

    I have been rafting in Canada before on Class IV rapids and had a great time. These rapids were a lot gentler but I also had a lot of fun. Since they are more class III type rapids that come in sections followed by pools of water, you can play lots of games, swim in the water, take breaks to go into the jungle, AND fight the rapids.We went through...

    Cotundo Things to Do

    These caves were historically a sacred site of rituals for the Quichua people who lived in the area before the Spanish conquest in the 1500s. Later on, a Spanish priest claimed to have discovered the caves, though always known to the local indigenous people. However, the caves are formed of lava and volcanic rock (from the nearby Sumaco Volcano...

Puerto Misahuallí

    Puerto Misahuallí Restaurants

    In the rain forest on our tour, our guides caught fish with a spear. They just put on goggles and a snorkel, jumped in to the river and looked for the fishes under trees lying in the river. It didn’t take them long to catch the lunch or dinner. Meanwhile the fire got ready, so the fish got cleaned and then into the pot with water from the river and...

  • Gateway to the rainforest

    Puerto Misahuallí Favorites

    This is a popular place from where to see the rainforest. The village is at the end of the road from Napo, and the village itself is placed around the square, where dozens of tour providers have their shops. It is no problem to find a tour to the rainforest; they all have standard-tours, of 1, 2 or 3 days, where you more or less see the same...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The best way to get to Ahuano, beside the car, is bus (5 hours ride from Quito) to Tena, then a small bus to Puerto Ahuano (is better by taxi) and then a boat to Ahuanos village (20 minutes ride).
