What You Can Expect

Papallacta Thermal Center and Spa Tour from Quito

Papallacta Thermal Center and Spa

Travel by private vehicle from your Quito hotel to the Termas de Papallacta Spa & Resort. Your professional driver will navigate the 40 miles (67 kilometers) of scenic roadway that winds through the stunning Amazon rainforest just east of the capital. Take in the scenery as you leave the crowds of the capital city behind you.

Follow the route used by Spanish conquistador Francisco de Orellana in 1542 as he traveled the length of the Amazon River and crossed the Andes. 

Upon arrival, your expert guide will show you around the retreat’s grounds and outline the lengthy list of services on offer. Unwind and de-stress in the famed thermal pools or, if you choose, enjoy an optional spa service like reflexology, massage of a rejuvenating facial for an additional cost. 

If time allows, take a leisurely hike or saddle up on horseback. Experience the beauty of the Amazon up close. As the day draws to a close, head back to Quito in your private vehicle feeling refreshed and fully recharged.

This is not an active day. Most of the time is spent lazing in the thermal waters. It was quite empty when I went . The only other thing to do is have a massage and eat lunch. The massage was extremely good and unbelievably cheap and well worth the extra. The lunch was also very good. As long as you are happy to lie around, have a massage and eat it is a really relaxing and pleasant day.

Our guides were fantastic and the spa exceeded our very high expectations! Would recommend this trip to anyone. So much fun, such a beautiful place, great food, and friendly people.

Outstanding. However our tour guide spoke directly from a script. If he had kept quiet it would have been an even better day. He allowed us free time at the spa but was there if we had questions or if we needed an interpreter. Highly recommend this trip if you need a quiet, relaxing day.
