After a busy day of work, we decided to go to Novaqua in Baños Azuay just outside of Cuenca. It’s one of several spas in Baños Azuay with hot springs pools. While we enjoy the other places, we prefer Novaqua because it’s adults only.
If you have kids or enjoy listening to kids play, we recommend Hostería Durán, which is just a short walk from Novaqua. It has a nice kid’s pool, as well as a nice thermal bath room that’s perfect for relaxing. The last time we went to Hostería Durán, it cost $8 per adult and I believe they also have kids rates. However, their kitchen is not very vegan friendly so be sure to take snacks….
