hot (thermal) springs - there are 3 different hot springs in and around baños, with some being only a 400m walk from la casa verde.  all provide pools with differing temperatures and have varying opening hours between 5am and 10pm

volcano watching - mama tungurahua, also known as ‘the black giant’, is the active volcano about 5km from baños.  there is mostly no activity throughout the year but when she starts up, night viewing of molten rocks spewing out provide a wonderful and unique travelling experience.  la casa verde is located in the volcano ‘safe’ area of the baños surrounds.

spa and beauty treatments - from massages and facials to baño de cajon (personal sauna), there are many options for indulging in a relaxing hour or 3 (or 5!).  at la casa verde, we have a formerly trained and highly experienced masseuse and beauty treatment therapist who offers an international quality treatment experience, at a fraction of the cost you’d expect to pay.  at the moment, we don’t have the baño de cajon but just 600m up the road you can find them.

rafting, kayaking, canyoning, rock climbing, paragliding, horse riding, zip-lining and bridge swinging

run by experienced guides through tour agencies in town.  they use good quality equipment and cater for the beginner to very advanced.  we can help organise these activities for you.

hiking, biking and waterfall viewing - in and around baños, there are walks and bike rides for all levels of fitness.  anything from 1.5 hours to 10 hours - you could be kept busy for days exploring.  there are also overnight and multiple day walks.  a popular bike route is down the valley of waterfalls – which makes a beautiful half day/day trip, with plenty of hiking opportunities also.

zoo, serpentarium, kids’ park - if you’d like to see some of the local and national animals/reptiles, birds etc... and aren’t heading into the jungle, baños has a great zoo and serpentarium.  there’s also a kids’ playground to help keep them entertained and burn energy!

day trips to the jungle and indigenous communities - you don’t even have to leave baños to get a glimpse of the jungle.  at la casa verde, we can help you organise a full day activity in and around puyo so you’re back here to spend another comfy night and enjoyable breakfast!  the community of salasaca, known for it’s beautiful wall hangings, is also close by.

we also have very comprehensive information at la casa verde so can help you plan activities, once you arrive.


primarily known for it’s hot springs and outdoor adventure activities, baños provides a wonderful base to rest and relax or get active and daring.
