A tan solo 45 minutos del nuevo aeropuerto de Quito, a 50 kilometros de distancia (31 millas) en un recorrido lleno de hermosos y pintorescos paisajes andinos se encuentra el Spa, Resort y Centro de Convenciones "Termas de Papallacta".

Este complejo turistico de aguas termales esta ubicado en la llamada, "Ruta de la Canela", la misma que el conquistador Francisco de Orellana tomo en 1542, cuando cruzo la Cordillera Andina y que inesperadamente le llevo al descubrimiento del Rio Amazonas.

Papallacta es la puerta de entrada a la Amazonia Ecuatoriana. Tiene una temperatura diurna promedio ambiental de 14 o C (57 o F).

We came here late in the afternoon on a Monday. This was our last stop in Ecuador before our 11:30 flight. The grounds are beautiful and the pools are fantastic. They ranged from very warm to very hot. So relaxing sitting in the pools looking around at the mountains.

We took a one day excursion from Quito to this hot springs. We did not stay in this hotel. We went on a Sunday and it was packed with people even in the more expensive pools. The shower/changing areas were also really crowded. I guess if you really like hot springs, this will still be great. For us, we could... More

It is best to visit the hot springs on a weekday, very busy, If a weekend opt for the more expensive pools.

The main attraction here are the hot water baths. You can go to the communal baths, but every cabin has a more or less private hot water pool a few steps from the entrance. There is a nice but small piece of cloud-forest nearby where you can catch a glimps of the richness of nature. But the region is rather... More

If you are visiting Quito, Ecuador, Termas de Papallacta is a nice option to take a break; it is a great 1-day option. I do not recommend spending more than a day at this attraction. I would begin early with a hike/trek in the area, followed by a visit to the "termas" where you can relax, and enjoy the hot... More
