Ecuador’s highlands are graced with haciendas and also city centre hotels too. In the small spa town of Baños, the Sangay caters for all those wishing to spend a relaxing time before or after scaling the foothills of Tungurahua. It is situated in a bucolic spot right next to the waterfalls that gave the town its name (Baños means bath)
Quito has hotels, hostels and guesthouses for all tastes and budgets, the Dann carlton being an example of the international class hotels that you might consider as you take in the Ecuadorean capital. Guesthouses and hostels dot the diplomatic quarter to the south of the centre of Quito and it is where you’ll find internet cafes and information about the country as a whole, well catered for by your particular establishment as they are all savvy to the tourists needs.
