 BANOS

Only 5km southwest of Cuenca, Banos is famous for its sulphur baths. There are several bath complexes including Marchan, Rodas, Familiar and Duran. The Duran complex is the largest and best maintained. The hot pools and steam baths around the area are often crowded at weekends, but the surrounding hills above the village offer delightful landscapes for walking and hiking.

Getting there
Bus
Buses leave to and from Cuenca every 5 to 10 minutes. The journey only costs around US$0.30*.

Taxi
To Banos a taxi will cost about $3,00*.

*Prices are approximate
