Our Top 5 Must-Do's
SCUBA DIVE THE GALAPAGOS
Considered some of the best diving in the world, it would be a shame not to see Galapagos underwater. Santa Marta offers the most options for dive shops and allows access to the most well-known sites. Liveaboards are also a good way to get a lot of diving in during your time here.
SEE THE DEVILS CAULDRON
Officially named Pailon del Diablo, this attraction is a good stopping point on your way into Banos. It’s located about half an hour out of town and is the most breathtaking waterfall we saw in Ecuador. The entry costs $2.
SWING AT THE EDGE OF THE WORLD
Located in the highland regions surrounding Baños lies a set of swings that allow you to swing through the clouds. This popular tourist attraction costs $2 to enter and is sure to snap you up some likes on social media. There are also alternative ‘adventure swings’ for the adrenaline seekers located close by.
MEET THE WILDLIFE
The Galapagos is without a doubt one of the most unique places on earth. Because of the strict nature of their protection laws, the animals on the Galapagos Islands are totally unfazed by humans. Which allows for some of the most remarkable animal viewing opportunities on planet earth.
RAPEL DOWN A WATERFALL
Baños is the adventure capital of Ecuador and one of the most unique activities you can do here is ‘Canyoning’. Rapel down rushing waterfalls as you make your way downstream…. just wait for the surprise at the end.
