Swinging may be reserved as child’s play back home, but not in Ecuador. From a seismic monitoring station called The Treehouse (or La Casa del Arbol in Spanish), Mt. Tungurahua, an active volcano near the small town of Baños, is best seen from a swing that extends off a cliff. Even if the swing doesn’t interest you, it’s still worth packing a lunch and hiking to this vista for a view of the beautiful lush landscape.
The sub-tropical climate of Baños offers relief from the Andean chill. Adventurous travelers come here to check out the area’s active volcanoes, trek to a number of breathtaking waterfalls, and partake in outdoor activities, including climbing, cycling and rafting.
Other destination highlights in Ecuador include the capital city of Quito and the Galapagos Islands. To swing into your own Ecuador adventure, contact us and talk with an expert travel advisor at Latin America For Less.
