Tungurahua may be the smallest province of Ecuador, but it has a lot of diversity to offer to tourists. While Banos is one of the most visited places in the country, there is a lot more to be found in Tungurahua. The highland areas are probably some of the most culturally diverse of the entire country and only rarely visited.
Banos has been popular with travellers for decades. It's a place where any visitor can find something fun to do.
This little town is filled with fun activities. For those into adventure travel there is rafting, hiking, climbing and mountainbiking.
If you are done with the busy touristy vibe in Banos, Pelileo would be an excellent next stop. Just enjoy the pleasant climate in this peaceful countryside town and rest in Pelileo before you continue on to your next stop. When you drive through it, you will notice a lot of jeans stores along the main road in Pelileo.
