“So much fun!”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

As touristy as it is, it's definitely so much fun to come up here and swing into the sky! It's not as scary as it looks and it's a great feeling. The owner of the place is so sweet and if nothing else, come up here to donate a couple bucks to him and enjoy the view from the top up there. The swing is fantastic and everyone should try it at least once if they come to Baños!!

“Great view”
Reviewed 17 July 2014 via mobile

Even though we had a cloudy day the view was beautiful. It was kinda adventurous swinging over the mountain knowing if this snapped it was a long way down. There is a donation box next to the tree house. I would recommend visiting here even if you don't have the courage to swing. Very beautiful.

“took a bus there and hiked back. was great!”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

we took a bus from the center of banos all the way there (it is in front of "don gato" bakery and leaves once a day at 2pm).
the place was beautiful. we got great pictures.

we hiked back through the vergin mirador. that was a hard 1.5 hours hike in a steep downhill. i would ask about the other trail...

“Swinging on Top of the World!”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

My husband and I , along with another friend shared the cost of a cab to go up to this swing. We also stopped to take many other beautiful pictures of the scenery along the way. Even though the volcano was mostly covered by clouds on the morning that we went, it still was a breathtakingly beautiful view. We enjoyed our turns on the swing immensely as well as climbing the tree house. We were also strapped in and felt completely safe even though I have an extreme fear of heights. We enjoyed speaking with the friendly yet humble owner of this unique house and swing. We learned that he plays quite a substantial role in the daily monitoring of volcanic seismic activity.
