White Water Rafting Adventures in Banos, Ecuador


Banos (Baños de Agua Santa) is the outdoor activity hub of the country of Ecuador. Located in the center of the country in the Tungurahua Province, the town is conveniently located at the base of the Tungurahua Volcano and is the last major town before the Amazon Basin begins, giving it the nickname as the “Gateway to the Amazon”

The stunning natural landscapes makes it a perfect getaway for outdoor adventure junkies who will find activities like canyoning, camping, climbing, trekking, bungee-jumping, zip-lining, and the world-famous Swing at the End of the World.

One of the more adrenaline pumped activities would be the white water rafting adventures down the famous Pastaza River, that passes through lush beautiful landscapes of the UNESCO World Heritage Rainforest of the Sangay National Park and the Llanganates.
