For thousands of years, natural thermal hot springs have poured out of the rocks and spilled out in the Papallacta town thanks to its location between two volcanoes: Cayambe and Antisana.

The springs are perched at a height of 3,300 meters (10,824 feet) above sea level, this magical place is now accessible to all. Daily private tours and sharing basis tours transport thousands of happy travelers to these Hot Springs each year. Join us for a magical trip to the Papallacta thermal baths!
