Will pick you up at your hotel. Driving to the Northwest from Quito (2hours by car) you arrive in the town of Papallacta which is very well known for its curative hot springs, (sulphated alkaline thermal waters, sodium, calcium, chloride and traces of magnesium which are odorless, colorless but have a slightly salty taste. Besides improving intestinal function, the baths' curative properties are also anti-allergenic, anti-inflammatory, diuretic and anti-rheumatic). This village is at 3.700m in the midst of an evergreen Páramo landscape.
The source temperature of the thermal baths goes between 30°C and 70°C (86°F and 158°F). At the pools the temperature ranges from 36°C to 40°C (97°F to 104°F). The Thermoludic Area is the perfect place to experience a variety of different hydro- massages using either water jets or air bubbles. The SPA’s hydrotherapy area consists of five hot thermal pools and one cold pool. You can also do some other activities as hiking, or horseback riding.
During this journey we will taste a delicious meal of trout which is the specialty dish of this area. After this relaxing day we will come back to your hotel in Quito.
