Piedra de Agua

October 22 – Wayne and I headed about 15 minutes by bus outside of town to Banos, a little town just outside of Cuenca that boasts thermal hot springs.  We had been before with the kids, but this time we decided to splurge on the higher end facility.

So let me clarify our “splurge” – if you get there before 9 am any day during the week it is two for one.  Meaning we paid $30 for the two of us – this included a steam bath, red and blue mud baths, a Jacuzzi and cold plunge in a cave-like rock setting (kind of reminiscent of Grove Park Inn) and Turkish steam chambers.  We had the place to ourselves – literally we did not see anyone apart from employees.  We then enjoyed two more thermal pools before we were noodles and needed to get home.  We hope we can share our find with some of you who might visit!
