  • Start the journey from the city of Quito in the morning. Some minutes later, we take the interoceanic highway and a beautiful valley appears on both sides of the road. As the valley passes, the scenery will change with elevations that are part of the Andean Paramo. After an hour and a half of drive, we reach out the village of Papallacta that in local language means "Potatoe farm". 15 minutes away from this village, we get into the best lodge in the area called "Termas Papallacta". Upon arrival on this place, we will prepare our backpack to start a small walk along the paths, where plants, rivers, streams, animals and a mountain formation will be observed. Next, the guide will talk about the 2-option wet area, the first one is the Spa section, this place has an exclusive pools area with different types of hydro massage. In the another one of this wellness lodge, we see a public pools that has a larger area with greater affluence of public. Usually, if passengers wish, they can use the Spa-service massage to enjoy a typical treatment with warm stones. After a pleasant day, we will return to the City of Quito.
