Fun and relaxing

The driver was friendly and a safe driver. He took us on a few stops and one of them was a hummingbird lodge with a small hike to a river. The hot springs was relaxing and fun to try out the different temperatures. Don't skip out on the restaurant at the hot springs because the food was fresh and so good. The driver was timely on the agreed upon time to meet up after we were finished with the hot springs. My friend left his sneakers in his car and he was kind enough the next day to drop it off.
It was a natural day!!!

Simply Papallacta is a perfect place to relax and enjoy nature. The pools with volcanic waters took the stress out me and my family. Our children really enjoyed the place. Our guide was great, he was always taking care of us. Don´t miss out this trip.
Fantastic Day Out!

Had such a wonderful day out today. Eduardo is very knowledgeable and obviously has a great love for his country and his job! We went to see the hummingbirds, then visited the thermal springs. The hummingbirds were wonderful to watch and the swim and float in the thermal waters was divine. Had a lovely lunch at the springs too - very reasonably priced and good Ecuadorian food! Would definitely recommend Galapagos My World!!!

Son muy lindas, novedosas, relajantes hasta cierto punto pero tienen dos problemas principales. Uno es que a veces está demasiado lleno y es más estresante que relajante, Dos, que a altas horas, cuando está muy concurrido, se sienten las aguas extremadamente sucias, esto lo hemos visto no una sino varias veces.
