Visit the small village of Papallacta to bathe in natural hot springs and view the area's multitude of pristine lakes. Wildlife is also abundant around here, so keep your eyes peeled for wandering creatures and flying birdlife overhead.
Just 50km from the capital, Papallacta makes for a wonderful day out. The drive from Quito to the village is a scenic one and once you arrive, you'll be greeted with beautiful panoramic views of the Ecuadorian countryside and cloudforest.
The village itself is located just outside the Cayambe Coca Reserve and is surrounded by over 50 glistening lakes. The abundance of hot springs in the area is due to the Antisana Volcano, so step in and relax as you soak up the views.
You may also embark on one of the many hikes into the reserve to see waterfalls and birdlife if you fancy something a little more active.
