Banños is a beautiful town nestled in the mountains, about three hours south of Quito by bus. It is also directly underneath Volcán Tungurahua, and therefore in the danger zone should there be a large pyroclastic flow or lahar following an eruption. For the time being it is a gorgeous place, wonderful climate, and very friendly. Here is the Basilica Nuestra Señora de Agua Santa.
