Don't let the cloudy looking water fool you! Banos literally means 'baths,' in Spanish, and that's what the city is most well known for-its thermal pools which are high in mineral content (thus the murky look.) The thermal pools vary in temperature based on how much water they are fed from Volcano Tungurahua. The pools are well known for their variety of healing properties, with four separate baths in Banos. Las Piscinas de La Virgen is the most famous of the bunch and the only hot thermal pool of the lot. It is said that the Virgin Maria actually came here to wash her feet in 1928, leading to the name of this thermal spring. Buy your cheap flights to Banos and you'll be able to spend as much or as little time at the thermal pools as you'd like.
Visit the Church of the Virgin of the Holy Water, a site of holy pilgrimage for those wishing to visit the Church of the Virgin Maria. The Virgin is said to have been responsible for many local miracles and people come to this beautiful, Gothic style volcanic stone church to pay homage. The outside of the church is beautiful and the inside of the church tells the story of the Virgin and the volcano through paintings. It's definitely a place worth a visit, so when you consider ordering flights to Banos, consider visiting the church as well.
