Besides visiting family in Cuenca, the highlight of my trip to Ecuador was my stay at La Casa Verde. The owners, Doug and Rebecca and son, John, have and are building a place of love and care for their guests and the environment. The food is carefully prepared not to upset a U.S. digestive tract - even the water is safe for ingesting. I had wonderful conversations with other guests. The hostel is within walking distance of the hot springs (just watch for timing, they are not always open). Far enough away from the hustle of Banos, but close enough for a quick and cheap cab ride to town (always negotiate the price before you choose the driver- I paid anywhere from $1.50 to $2. I will definitely return to Banos (my second trip) and I will stay at La Casa Verde.
