    These are some great adventures! I’ve seen many pictures of the swing before, it looks incredible and must be such a breath-taking experience! Zip-lining would be on my to-do list as well. (also, you guys look so happy in these photos, it’s awesome)

      Thanks Anna, we were stoked to be in Baños and these type of activities are our element. The zip-lining was awesome, definitely some of the most fun we’ve had. Hopefully you get to check out Baños one day!

    woooowwww…. Epic photos from great adventures. I’m not sure if I can do it myself. I want to go to Ecuador now but I might end up strolling around and sightseeing only. You two have brave souls…

      Hi Louiela! Thanks so much! There are definitely some activities for you there though – especially the waterfalls, swing and thermals 🙂 Not scary at all 😀

    Wow, sounds great. I love the sound of the zip lining, soaring high above the jungle. Thanks for sharing, when I get to Ecuador I’ll be sure to check back to this as a reference! Happy Travels

    Admittedly find some of these a little scary (not a fan of heights) but love white water rafting. That swing looks like it would be loads of fun too! Always love a good thermal soak as well. Banos sounds like a great place to visit.

      I’m afraid of heights too but such a junkie for adrenaline so I always find myself saying YES to everything. Definitely a great place to visit if you ever get the chance (it’s cheap too!). Amanda

    well the swing at the end of the world and walking down those killer stairs are on my bucket list but I might has well put all of Banos down because those geothermal pools are my thing for sure! Natures hot tub is great for all that hiking and zip lining or rafting but you can keep the bungee

      Oh the thermals are fantastic! And we love that there are so many different pools with varying temperatures so you can pick the right one for you!

      Oh I hope you do! It’s a great place and sooo cheap. My favourite activity was probably the bridge jump but that’s purely because it was a massive step in conquering my fear of heights. Otherwise ziplining is actually one of my fave activities ever!
