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.

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. In spite of this I live a rich life on a frugal budget.
