The view is the best thing about this place, with its sweeping panorama of Banos. The service was excellent and the food quite well prepared and tasty. I had some excellent crepes and a good cup of coffee.

If you're looking for a good hike (about an hour), an amazing view, and some delicious food - Cafe del Cielo is absolutely worth your time. They have a lodge too, with spas and pools and all that good stuff. It's pricey, but definitely worth. If you make it, the crepes are excellent, and the view is spectacular.

This was a unique experience, to be sure. We were there on a rather cloudy day, which made the view even more spectacular as the city below would come into view suddenly and then would disappear again. Food was excellent too (we just had dessert-type items); a little expensive, even for Banos, but that's to be expected, given the view. Walk up to the volcano monitoring station to work off the food.

The view is to die for! You see the whole city of Banos, surrounded by mountains. The food was great- they served alcohol, crepes, ice cream and sandwiches. There were also 34 types of coffees to try!

You haven't absolutely experienced banos until you visit Luna Runtun. It was like a dream to be somewhere so spectacular and peaceful.
