Gateway To The Amazon Basin – Self-Guided Adventure.

186 km southeast of Quito, we’ll find our gateway to the Amazon region from the Andes. A town with a variety like no other, this is Baños de Agua Santa. The town is well known for its beauty and tourist attractions. As we go along in our journey, we’ll enjoy the sight of the Colossus on the way, that’s Cotopaxi Volcano to the left and Illinizas to the right, and slowly making a transition from the Andes and the mountain region to the Amazon.

Quito, in Pichincha province, echoes from ancient American history to future challenges, including its status as a world capital. Quito was the first city in the world to ever win this distinction, due to its Historic Center. Many buildings date back to 1534, rebuilt after General Inca Rumiñahui burned the city rather than surrendering to Spanish conquerors.
