We were here in late May, the rainy season and the water was rushing everywhere. The main route, E30, had several smaller falls along with the main large falls across the rivers. The only issues were the rock slides temporarily closing the road. Other than...More

We hiked Quilatoa, camped in the Amazon, got civilized in Quito and biking the Ruta de las Cascadas was a definite highlight. Do be careful who you rent your bike from (make sure it has good brakes), but mostly enjoy the ride. You can do...More

The route is on a highway with large trucks and buses and the waterfalls and cable cars are just OK so skip the bike ride and take a cab to the main attraction: Pailon del Diablo

Rent a bike and go along the Ruta de las cascadas and you will get to see so much free waling water, stunning canyons within impressive landscape. Many activities offered on the way such as zip line.

Renting bikes and riding along the Ruta de las Cascadas was one of my favorite things I did during my two week trip in Ecuador. The ride from Banos to el diablo was beautiful, not too hard at all, and cheap! If you make it...More

The bikeride itself is nothing special, you just cycle along the main road with loads of teucks and buses. Still you feel pretty safe as they do share the road with the bicycles. I would recommend visiting the first waterfalls just ouside BAÑOS. It costs...More

Enjoyed the cycle and the last 2 waterfalls were great but on a personal level all the zip lines cable cars and associated noise spoilt it for me. I would look to do a trek in instead if I had my time again.
