Depart Quito on this 2 day extension and travel 40 miles east to an Andean paradise, Papallacta Hot Springs. Take time to savor these relaxing pools and enjoy the beauty of the lush flora and fauna all around. Overnight in Papallacta before returning to Quito.
Drive east towards the Oriente, viewing the spectacular and breathtaking high plains. Arrive in Papallacta, a small village located in the central highlands (10491ft/3200m) known for its natural hot springs where you'll be able to swim. Enjoy the natural hot spring pools that occur due to Papallacta's location between two volcanoes, Volcano Cayambe and Volcano Antisana.
Overnight in Papallacta.
Day 2: Return to Quito
The morning is free for you to enjoy. Take a short walk around the Papallacta lagoon and observe the flora and fauna or relax in the hot springs. Return to Quito in the afternoon.
This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
