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.
