At the bottom of a steep alpine valley, in amongst the cloud forests, these developed springs are said to be the best in Ecuador and attract crowds accordingly. There are several sets of pools, some part of resort complexes and some municipal and they range in temperature from a literally scorching 60 degrees to body temperature and from swimming pool sized to private bath. One of the resorts actually offers rooms with private baths. Medicinal baths offering mineral, crysalline, hypertonic, hyperthermal and sulfate water are also on offer.
