Papallacta is a small village in Ecuador located at an altitude of 3,300 m in the Andes just off the Eastern Cordilleras on the road from Quito which leads into the Amazon jungle.

The scenic drive from Quito to Papallacta passes through several towns and small villages before ascending to a peak of over 4,000 m where views of mountains and glaciers are visible. Descending from the peak to Papallacta, one passes through the portal where the ecosystems transform from alpine to tropical jungle. The village of Papallacta itself is not known as a tourist destination but houses several hot springs and spas. Many of the local restaurants are known for their steamed trout and a hearty meal can be had for just a few dollars. For lodging, there are several tourist hotels and a resort.

Heading east across the Eastern Cordillera we pass the Sangay volcano, positioned amongst some truly beautiful landscapes. Once in Papallacta, we enjoy the recreational activities on offer. Whether it’s embarking on adventure walks or simply relaxing in the volcanic thermal baths you are sure to enjoy the Papallacta experience. This tour is complemented with a range of culinary delights sure to cater to your needs.

Experience the natural wonders of Papallacta and the Antisana Volcano! Situated on an Andean valley at the entrance to the Ecuadorian Amazon jungle, the village of Papallacta has a cool climate offering natural thermal springs, with temperatures fluctuating between 36 and 42 C. It is believed that these thermal waters have the power to alleviate illnesses such as arthritis, digestive problems or bad circulation. Papallacta springs are a restorative experience, where your mind and body can get away from it all.
