Though the security of the swing is a little sketchy, the feeling you get of swinging on top of the world with the view of a volcano is incredible!

You can get up here by car, buggy, taxi, or walking. We usually walk when we can, but be advised this is a long walk up a mountain. It's also a little tricky to find on foot but the locals are happy to help. The swing is cool and it really is one of the best photo ops in the area. We didn't see the volcano which was a bummer, but weather doesn't always cooperate! If you have a clear day try to make it up here.

Had a beautiful day when we visited the tree house! Great view on the Tunguharua volcano! We were also very lucky because Don Carlos, the impassioned volcanoexpert, who's living next to the tree house, gave us some informations and told us some interesting stories!! Love this man!

$15 taxi ride, to and from plus a half hour to explore. You won't die if you fall off the swing and there's a seatbelt, but it was still a lot of fun! Where else can you enjoy a swing on a mountain and see a volcano? The view was terrific and well worth the trip. I hope that if I return to Baños, I'll hike up the mountain instead.

This is a drive from town up the mountain, but worth it. We went twice! The first time it was overcast plus there was a group of people swinging over and over again so we finally asked to take a turn. Since people were waiting after us, we took a quick turn on the swing and left. The next morning we were the only ones there and it was sunny and clear! It was beautiful and we were able to swing all we wanted.
