My wonderful biking in Baños
This time I really enjoyed biking in Baños, Ecuador. The Route of the Waterfalls takes from 20 km. to 60 km. crossing tunnels, visiting waterfalls, bridge jumping, take a wonderful bath on the border of the Andes and the Amazon Region. All their bikes have break disc system ideal for bad roads; the route is very easy because most of the time is downhill and you can take the bus back.
Good service and English is spoken.
Bungy Jump From a Bridge
Not far outside of Banos, you can take the plunge from a bridge. It's certainly not the highest bungy jump, but it gets the job done. The price is around $10. This is just off the road to Puyo, so it can be done on the Banos-Puyo bicycle trip.
Equipment: $10 and extra pair of underwear

Bike trip down the Altiplano and into the Jungle
As my must-see-tip says, one of the best things to do in Baños is to hire a bike (dirt cheap at about $5 USD per day) and venture into the sorounding areas. Ask around for the best routes. My favorite one was the downhill ride to the jungle.
