Otavalo Indian Market
We will meet at 08h00 at your hotel for a 2-hour drive to Otavalo. This small town north of Quito is mainly known for its indigenous culture and the world-famous market. The handicraft market of Otavalo is the largest you will find in Latin America!
Surrounded by lakes, rivers, mountains and volcanoes, it is a small paradise that offers so much more than a simple stop-andshop-tour. On our way to Otavalo we will stop at Guayllabamba. This small town is a agricultural centre where we will taste the chirimoya, a typical fruit of this region and at a viewpoint will have a stop to take in the amazing landscapes surrounding this town: the valleys and the snow-capped mountains.
Our next stop is Lago de San Pablo viewpoint. The biggest lake in the north of Ecuador on the foot of the volcano Imbabura before arriving in Otavalo. Our first stop in Otavalo will be Plaza de los Ponchos, this is where the handicraft market takes place every day. Especially when you would like to buy some souvenirs, this is your chance! From there we continue to Peguche, a small village known for its musicians, where we will visit the waterfalls. Our tour continues to Cotacachi. This village just a little bit north of Otavalo is the leather capital of Ecuador. Many workshops and shops will be happy to help you choose your new boots, jacket, belt or anything else that can be made out of leather before heading back to Quito where we will arrive aroubd 5-6 PM.
A great day full of culture and shopping.
