From Banos, you can visit and enjoy those waterfalls by renting a bicycle (but seems quite hard to me, didn't do it, saw people enjoying but some other fell down, went back by bus plus you need to share the road with cars at some points). You can go by bus or book a tour. We took a bus directly... More

We really enjoyed cycling this route. For around $5 you can hire a bike in town from one of the many tour operators and usually they will give you a map too. I would recommend going all the way to Machay, because it was supposedly a really nice place to swim. Unfortunately we didn't go because it starting raining really... More

Rent a bike and head on the road for an awesome ride. There are more uphill climbs then you expect but nothing crazy and we had good quality bikes that made the ride smooth. It's a great way to spend time outside, and definitely take the chance to do a zip line at some point.

We rented bikes with Imagine Ecuador Company in Banos to visit the waterfall route. The bike ride is not that difficult. The most Amazing waterfall is the Devil's. Great day, fantastic views!

Rent a bike, but do some research!! The route itself was amazing, but we ended up paying $5 each for bikes that couldn't shift!! We wanted to go the full 60Km to Puyo, but couldn't make it because we couldn't shift!! After 30KM there is a lot more uphill, and a good bike is necessary! Overall, beautiful views, and would...

Our 'Rabbit' tour was mostly for the young at heart. We are retirees so did not attempt all the daredevil jaunts, however, we thoroughly loved our sightseeing and treking across the swinging bridge above the Rio Verde. Spectacular views, beautiful flora and amazing cliff walkways. Seeing and doing is the only way to appreciate this sight.
