You know when a volcano goes off somewhere in the world my first instinct is always to pack. I love the spectacular show of flame and fireworks put on by mother nature. I know it’s dangerous, but there’s a secret vulcanologist inside me just dying for a front row seat. When I read that Tungurahua, the most active strato volcano in Ecuador is active again I thought, “Time to head for Banos.” It is a small spa town that lies at the foot of the volcano. Go rapelling, take a jungle tour, you can even bungee jump here. It’s an adrenaline junkies paradise. And the volcanic spa at Luna Runtun (right) is as stunning as the the volcanic eruptions.
