How to get to Banos?

by kimbersf Online Now Sep 10, 2013 at 11:29 AM

Hi all! I'll be spending a week in Montanita in late January and would like to then go to Banos. Is there a way to fly? My friends and I don't want to take the bus, but if flying isn't an option (or doesn't make sense), we would like to hire a driver. Does anyone know which option is better and how to arrange it?
Thanks so much!

    The airport in Ambato (closet airport to Banos) is not for regular passenger flights. Even if it was, you'd still need to take a bus from Ambato to Banos (about an hour)

    There is also no airport in Montanita. So you'd have to take a bus to Guayaquil or Manta.

    I'm afraid i have no information on private transport.

    Go with a private guide/driver. They aren't that much money. We hired a private guide/driver thru Safari Ecuador and he was FANTASTIC. We visited Banos (this was just about three weeks ago) with him and he knew everyone and everything about it.
