“Bus ride”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

Very touristy on top of a double decker bus. Not too bad if you are wondering what to do in Banos for a couple of hours.

“rent a bike for $5”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

we only biked down to the Diablo waterfall but it was so much fun! we even stopped and did a zipline head first. Don't miss the empanada stand by where you park your bikes as the lady makes the best banana chocolate empanada in front of you!

“Good Road trip”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

we did this amazing trail on our car. This is the route from Banos to Puyo in which there are multiple waterfalls , tunnels and other places to do adventure activities. There are 3 major waterfalls and 4 tunnels. The best option is to hire a bike from Banos and ride through this route. we have an amazing view of the rainforest mountains and pastaza river throughout the road. The roads are maintained well and proper signboards for each attraction.

“Biking Ruta de las Cascadas”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

We did this amazing trail on the bike around 40km. Make sure that where you hire a bike you get a helmet (cause we dident get one) apparently some companies give it and some others dont. They will also give you a safety lock for the bike so you can lock your bike and take the trails or the tarabita to the different waterfalls. Pailon del diablo is a must! but prepare to get wet and take a 1km walking trail to get to the waterfall. For the way back the are buses that will take you with the bike to the center of baños for $2

“Nice hike to waterfalls in national park”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Our group really enjoyed the casual and relaxing hike into the park to see these waterfalls. The park is well maintained as are the trails.
