Baños

Getting Here & Around

Baños lies east of Ambato on the road to Puyo. From Quito's Terminal Terrestre, frequent buses leave for Baños (3½ hours). The fare is $5. The high concentration of tourists means the route is notorious for theft. Watch your things like a hawk (or an Andean condor). Taxi drivers charge around $100 for a trip from Quito. Remember that you must pay the driver's return fare, too.
