Somewhat difficult to find by foot, lax regulations, and a cheap entrance fee. Who could ask for more, really? If you're in the area, set aside a few hours to hike up; the extra work is worth it, and makes it all that much more...More

A spectacular view, like no other! Especially if you go when the sun sets. Will be able to enjoy the view and pure nature ecuador has to offer.

Amazing experience!! For only a dollar you can take in the outstanding view, but also climb a treehouse, race each other on zip wires and ride swings over the mountain edge. Some lovely flowers and green areas to enjoy too. There are basic bathrooms and...More

Went on a two hour tour up the mountian and this was the last stop. Neat place, cost of only a buck to get in and they help you on the swing. Definitely worth the trip. The only bummer was that the weather was lousy...More

We saw the amazing pictures all over Banos and had to make a visit there. Reality is far different from the pictures. We expected a lone tree house and swing but there was a tourist shop, cafe, and the pictures of the tree house must...More

This was an easy activity for the family. Not extreme at all but still fun. If you want more of an adrenaline rush, there are plenty of other extreme swing options around.
