Baños day 4 and La Ruta de las Cascadas. 

We haven’t found a good place to buy coffee in the morning before class so this morning we made our own coffee in our shared kitchen and feasted on pastries from the panaderia around the corner. These four cost $1.


During our Spanish class this morning we went for a walk with our teachers and practiced our Spanish conversation skills.


This afternoon we took a bus tour along the road east of Baños. It is called the Ruta de las Cascadas or the Waterfall Route. 

At the our first stop we took an awesome cable car ride over the Rio Pastaza canyon. 


At the next stop, the Manto de la Novia waterfall you could zip line over the canyon if you wanted to. We didn’t. It was such a long ride over the river and the waterfall that the zip line riders disappeared on the other side. 

For the whole tour it was raining but that really didn’t detract from the beauty. 


Our final stop was the incredible Pailón del Diablo – Devil’s Canyon Waterfalls. We hiked over a couple of suspension bridges and down a trail cut into the cliff wall to see the thundering falls – one of the best I have ever seen.
