Banos is the capital of extreme sports of South America. You want to do something crazy, near an active volcano, in a beautiful valley with hundreds of rivers and waterfalls for a ridiculously low price? Well this is the place to come. Having 50$ here will get you enough activities for a few days (rafting, kayaking, rock climbing, canyoning, mountain bike, bungie, hiking etc…) and the rest of the time you can relax at the hot baths, walk up the mountain all the way to casa de arbol or have a beer in some of the great restaurants in town.
My friend Michael French took some of these amazing pictures; you should take a look at his Instagram https://instagram.com/michael.french.foto/
