    Thermal pools in Papallacta

    July 24, 2018 in Ecuador ⋅ ⛅ 6 °C

    So our final day in Ecuador Steph took us to see Papallacta just one hour outside of Quito. We went over the mountains until we reached a valley hidden deep within the green rainforest. Everything was beautiful! For just 9$ per adult and half of that for kids you got to spend the entire day at the hot springs. Some pools were cold from the mountain but most of them were heated from within the Antisana volcano. Unfortunatly Tilde woke up feeling unwell so she stayed home to rest for our flight back home tomorrow but the rest of the family had a wonderful time. Some of the springs had the distinct smell of sulfur from the volcano and a temperature of 45 degrees while as some had as low as 2 degrees celcius. The nature was stunning and it was so relaxing just sitting there, soaking and watching the cows far far away on the mountain. Highly recommended!Read more
