The entrance at the evening costs 3$ and in the morning 2$. Also you need a hair net, you can rent it for 0.50$. We didn't like the atmosphere, very loud,... More

I decided to go to the Hot springs after a long hike on the mountains. The water has lots of minerals which is perfect for a natural treatment!

We didn't end up going in. It is only a few dollars entrance but once you're in they insist you buy a €5 swim hat to wear in the pools. This is good for hygiene reasons, but when we looked through the gates it was PACKED! There were so so many people cramped into the few small pools. We decided... More

If you feel so tired after outdoor adventures, you should go to the Hot springs. The place is very crowded on the weekends, try to go on weekdays. The pools are amazing for a natural treatment. Very recommend!

We have decided to go to the Natural Pools in a rainy day in Banos. That was super amazing the natural treatment in each pool. After an outdoor adventure or a Hike is reccommend to go there, after you will feel so fresh!

Of course this is true for everything in Baños, as the town usually fills up with tourists on the weekends. Living in Baños, I like to go when they open at 5am. A small regular group of locals are usually the only people there for the first hour. The facilities are pretty rustic so don't expect anything plush. Another reason... More

This is probably one of the most visited placed by locals and foreigners, it is a small complex of thermal water on one of the flanks of the small city of baños. You just have to walk towards the small waterfall that is visible from most angles of the city, at night they shine the waterfall on a green light.... More
