Eating

As a popular spot on the traveler trail, Baños is full of international eateries catering to backpackers and holidaymakers; quality varies. The town is famous for melcocha, a chewy taffy that’s softened and blended by swinging it onto wooden pegs, usually mounted in the doorways of shops. Pieces of chewable caña de azúcar (sugarcane) and jugo de caña (sugarcane juice) are sold at sugarcane stalls across from the bus terminal.
