New Year's Visit to Papallacta

We will be driving from Quito to Huasquila Amazon Lodge on New Year's Day. We wanted to stop along the way to enjoy the thermal baths at Papallacta. Will this be possible on New Year's Day? Is there someplace specific we should go?

I'm sure the baths are open on New Year's Day, but google the Termas de Papallacta - there is a nice hotel there that runs baths, and you could email them. They are the best baths in the area by far. you can pay $6 to access the cheaper baths which are very nice, and $15 to access more exclusive baths where you get a locker and robe included, and you are on the site of a spa as well if you want to opt for a massage, mud wrap, etc (which I highly recommend). If you want a massage, try to book that by email too, or calling from Quito- the slots fill up quickly; if you try to book only when you get there, you might not find a time slot that fits your schedule.

I am going to Papallacta on the 27th with a group of 7. I made all the arrangements online. Try contacting them through their website or contact Alenandrea through email at:


She has been very helpful with our plans.
