For those with a growing love of adventure!! Get out of the city and spend 2 days in Banos - ride horses up the side of a volcano, hike in a cloud up hidden mountain trails, and let the clear air rush through your senses. I never quite understood the thrill of adventure travel until I found myself hanging halfway down a 200 foot waterfall.

Trusting the ropes to hold me, I tilted my head back and let the water sting my face. No longer an observer of nature, I was actually part of the waterfall!! Easily, one of the most beautiful experiences of all my travels.

Dozens of adventure companies line the main street of Banos' city center - shop around, but most will be able to take you here or to a similar waterfall.
