If you visit Baños de Agua Santa in Ecuador you must spend some time at the hot springs. The most famous and historic is Termas de Virgen. So named because the Virgin Mary is believed to have appeared here multiple times. The Pope even visited and the church confirmed the miracles. That aside it is a nice place to visit. If you go early when the baths open you will avoid the crowds and children. I often go during my extended visit to Baños every year. Say hi if you happen to visit while I am there.
Baños de Agua Santa is a popular destination for Ecuadorians as well as visitors from other countries. In addition to the hot baths there are many high adventures you can try. Just a few of those adventure include bungie jumping, rafting, kayaking, canyoning, and ziplining. There is also a nice party scene on one street in town. Religious festivals are another huge draw as you can image based on the source of the town name mentioned above.
Restaurante México de mis Sabores tiene el mejor comida mexicana en Ecuador.
Restaurante México de mis Sabores might have the best Mexican food in Ecuador. The tacos de pastor served in this meal were among the best I have had anywhere. From the fresh corn tortillas to the fresh pineapple and excellent al pastor this meal is sure to please. These five tacos cost $6.25 on February 23, 2022. The portions were generous. The margarita was also most excellent and cost $4.
Carrera de Coches en Baños de Agua Santa Ecuador features quite the race circuit with downhill and uphill sections the competitors must navigate. The teams must be fit to push their custom rides up the hills and daring to ride them down steep hills. The cars are often constructed from steel and welded together. Braking systems are very primitive. Different classes for age as well as steering systems exist.
If you ever visit Ecuador during the second week of December be sure to make plans to attend. This is quite the wild event with partying a plenty along the route. Local TV covers the race on a cable TV.

I primarily travel solo but you don't have to to enjoy this channel. Working as a river guide during summers in North America I don't earn a lot of money and live close to the federal poverty level.

See the Nazca Lines and save some money to with travel tips. This video features the Nazca Lines and geoglyphs. Also featured are the Cantalloc aqueducts that made life possible in the desert. The Cahuachi pyramids are adobe structures on mounds used for ceremonial purposes. Many of the geoglyphs feature animals from wetter climates like Amazonia.
The Nazca must have faced struggles living in the desert. Their technology to over come enviromental conditions is exceptional and worth a visit in person
