Beautiful cone shaped Volcano!

Stayed at a home on the river with views to the volcano. Just beautiful! Woke up several mornings when it was crystal clear and saw fresh snow on the top part of the mountain.

these natural sites make Banos a place worth visiting. Although it is touristy and known for spring break for Chilean and argenines , the waterfallsand volcano make Banos a naturally beautiful place to visit.

This was the first time I'd ever heard and seen a volcano erupting, you could even smell it! I could even see it from my hotel window.
