Papallacta Hot Springs Tour

Due to the tectonic and volcanic origins of the mountainous Andes, hot springs are common here. Because these waters have various medicinal and healing properties, resorts and spas has been developed that welcome travelers who wish to undergo hydrotherapy treatments during their trips to Latin America.

In Ecuador, the town of Papallacta is one of these sites that possess mineral waters containing sulfates, sodium, calcium, chloride and magnesium – which give the water characteristics that are anti-allergic, de-inflammatory, diuretic, anti-rheumatic and sedative, and are even said to improve bowel movement.

Going on this journey, we will meet you in the morning at your hotel in Quito, and then leave for eastern Ecuador via an inter-oceanic route that links the Atlantic to the Pacific.

Once we reach Papallacta, you can soak, swim, play and relax in the medicinal hot springs in this exceedingly natural environment. If the sky is clear, you will have a spectacular view of the Antisana Volcano looming above your pool.

Depending on the season, the average outside temperature ranges from 50° to 57°F (10° to 14°C); however, the water temperature can reach a relaxing 104°F (40°C).

During your visit to the hot springs resort, if you wish, you can enjoy addition optional activities (see below), including the massage of your choice at the spa, for an additional cost.

In the afternoon, we will return to Quito.
