There is a new spa/aqua park being built next door, walk around the corner for the very dated public spa. Cost us $3 entrance fee. Free boxes for clothes, collect from kiosk then take back they give you a number on a band ( don't lose it). We visited in the evening's after a long day doing fun stuff in... More

My family and i went to the hot spring pools in the evening. It was a little chilly but the pools made the running from to the other delightful. It's very crowded with locals and families but actually enjoyed that. We felt welcomed and "part of the family". It was $3 for adults if your not a national and $1.5... More

Went there at 7.30pm, it was very crowded, over 60 people in one pool. Entrance 3€, haircap 1€ (you can keep it afterwards..) Nice temperatures, recommend to go when it's more quiet

The place opens early in the morning - 5am I think (check before arriving at 5 in case I have that wrong) It is mobbed by 630am with locals who seem to perhaps go every day. That really makes a traveller feel like they are seeing the real Ecuador - which they are! Five pools - three on the upper... More

It was $3 per adult and $2 per child. We felt so relaxed afterward. There were 3 of the 4 pools open when we went. A super crazy hot one, a luke warm one, and a super cold one. The pools and grounds are very natural looking. If you are looking for a 5 star experience you should go somewhere... More

Great therapy!, Hot natural water from the volcano containing a variety of chemicals, considered "a cure for all ailments" from ancient times. Three pools with different water temperatures, the hottest one in the lower floor, be careful, it could burn you if you have sensitive skin. Cold natural water from the cascade available. Find relaxing jumping from one to the... More

If you go to Banos , go to the Hot springs is really nice, after you do outdoor adventures is recommended a natural therapy at this place. Try to go early morning is very clean, don´t go on weekends is too many people. Reccommended!

These thermal springs are ideal if you happen to be tired of traveling and walking. They are very relaxing and natural. One tip: make sure you get there early at around 6AM or very late at around 6PM. Don't go in between, it gets very crowded.

Disappointed There were only two pools open with an over load of bodies. Showers were cold. Buy your shower caps around the corner for 75 cents

These were the only thermal baths I went to in Banos, so I can't rank them relative to the others (although I've heard these are the most picturesque). There was a hot bath, a VERY hot bath, and a bunch of cold pools. The water is soothing and at night (when I went), there is pretty lighting. Other than that,... More
