Banos has a lot of adventure to offer, but from all the places we've visited, the swing with view over the Valley was the absolute best place we've seen. We got here by bus, around $5 and the entrance was $1, so all cool. Had...More

Located at the top of a mountain, and only after a 15 minute drive from Baños, you'll arrive to La Casa del Arbol. It's important not to be confused with other places located on the same road that also offer a similar swing like this...More

Great place to go to. The view is spectacular. Being on the swing is not as scary as it seems. I definitely want to go back, especially since one of the guys that was pushing everyone was really funny.

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

The Casa del Arbol was a highlight of our trip. I am so glad we went. I would suggest going in the morning rather than the afternoon, as we went in the afternoon and had to wait about 45 minutes to get a turn on...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

Baños es un bosque nublado, por lo que recomiendo llevar poncho de aguas y siempre extra par de zapatos por lo que pueda ocurrir. Llevar una chaqueta para la noche. Para las atracciones no veo inconveniente porque yo las... More
