On this drive, we start on Avenida de las Americas and travel the full length of via a Baños to the large blue church.

For many years, we lived at the foot of via a Baños and know it well. We’ve hiked extensively in the roads and hills about the blue church. There is a small produce market in front of the church on the weekends. The views from the parking lots are amazing.

You’ll also find a number of hotels with hot springs in Baños.

    Great article. You asked, “Is there an area you would like to see covered? Please share in it the comments!”

    My wife and I are considering moving to Ecuador and one of the ways we want to supplement our retirement income is to sell digital marketing services, advice and info-products. To do this we need a reasonably high-speed and reliable Internet connection. I’m talking about at least 15 Mbps down and a reasonable amount up, like 3 Mbps. Higher speeds, of course, would be much better as I currently have Verizon FiOS 75/75. I have been unable to find much recent information about Internet speeds and reliability in Ecuador via Google searches, so I wonder if you know of a source for this or could write about it in your column? Thanks in advance.
