Banos 25.jpg

The illuminated city of Banos in the Andean highlands of central Ecuador has become an adventure destination for foreigners as well as Ecuadorians.  It is known as the "Gateway to the Amazon" because of its location on the Pastaza River in the Amazon River Basin.  The Gothic styled Church of the Virgin of the Holy Water (Nuestra Senora del Agua Santa) can be seen in the foreground.
