Have a chat and learn from about their lives and how they prepare to sow the soil. Visit the town of Tigua, famous for its native paintings. Continue up to the Quilotoa Volcano, where you will be able to descend to the lake located inside the crater or just walk around the crater.

DAY 2 - Adventure Activities – Baños Waterfal...
Experience the beauty of Llanganates National Park in a protected area of Tungurahua Province on a half-day canyoning tour from Baños de Agua Santa. Highly qualified guides will kit you out with wet suits and take you through the strict safety regulations before taking you into the canyon to walk down a waterfall! Don't worry if you don't make it on the 1st try; you can practice more than once. Continue to a waterfall that cascades down 6 meters, and enjoy more canyoning thrills before raising the adrenaline stakes at an even higher waterfall. This time you will have to descend 45 meters.
The trip starts in the tour office at 9 am every day where you will try the equipment and drive by car toward Casahurco, one of the most emblematic sceneries in which to practice this adventure. When you get there you will have a safety briefing and start going down big waterfalls, swimming through it and jumping to big pools. You can practice different jumps here, zip lining on the rope to change a new route. The time in the Canyon will be more or less 3 hours, and after you finish the tour stop by a local restaurant nearby where you will get served a delicious lunch. Return to to Banos at around 2 pm.
