This short tour makes for a great 3-day escape from Quito. On the way, we’ll make a stop at the Quilotoa Lagoon, an unbelievable turquoise lake in the caldera of an active volcano. Once in Baños, you’ll enjoy a number of wonderful activities set against a beautiful backdrop of waterfalls and tropical greenery.

I noticed a LOT more graffiti in the Mariscal neighborhood compared to when I was there a couple of years ago. Nevertheless, it's not a bad area, but appears to be going through some changes. I noticed more empty buildings, which I hope is temporary. There is a nice contrast
