More about this tour

Located in South America, in the small country of Ecuador in the province of Napo.

This tiny town of Papallacta stands out for its thermal waters that emerges from the caldera of an extinct volcano.

On a day trip from Quito to Papallacta you will go across the eastern mountain range of Ecuador which at the same time is part of the Andes and, feel the good vibe of its beautiful mountains that form the andean landscapes on both sides of the road that leads us to this unique ecosystem called the Paramo, which one of its main characteristics is a dwaft forest, covered by a green carpet that acts as a water reservour and from where Quito gets its clean drinking water. In addition to that, this drive surrounds the Cayambe Coca National Park and the Papallacta hotsprings, are located right at the edge of this National Park.
