If you like to shop and haggle prices the Otavalo Market is a lot of fun. Many of the vendors sell the usual tourist schlock but some of the crafts and artisan items are a good buy. I even appreciated some of the reproductions. You do need to sort through many stalls to find ones with quality items. I live in a farming community with many alpacas. An alpaca jacket in the States will cost at least a couple hundred dollars and a beautiful one I purchased in the market ran me only $30. I've included a photo of a musician who performs his original music. He will give you a brief lesson if you purchase one of his instruments. Watch for pick pockets. We didn't have any trouble but they're around.
