    OTAVALO MARKET TOUR

    Early in the morning, we will drive 2 ½ hours to the northern side of the Ecuadorian Andes, where we will tour one of the most visited areas by foreigners and local tourists; the area is known as Imbabura, also called ´The Lakes Province´.

    We will then begin our journey going across the Guayllabamba Valley (Green Valley) where we can enjoy delicious fruits, typical of the area, such as Cherimoya and Lima.

    We will then continue our trip through an area with several viewpoints – these are the perfect places for people who like photography.

    When we come to the end of the viewpoints, we will stop to visit Otavalo Indian Market, which is very famous for its quality handicrafts, and its exportation to all over the world.

    Then we will take you to visit a wonderful waterfall known as Peguche, it’s a sacred place where the locals renew their energies and you will also do!!!

    After it, It is time to stop at Cotacachi Area, which is known for its famous-quality cow and sheep leather articles and also we can have a stop for lunch, there are several typical dishes and you can have a chance to try guinea pig if you desire….

    Finally we will visit Cuicocha well known as Guinea Pig Lake for awesome pictures, then we will return back to Quito

    Unfortunately we have to say good bye and we invite you to see one of our other tours in Galapagos and Peru Tours..

    However if you desire to add one more night in Quito City or extend your staying in Ecuador , we can always help you out with free advice to make sure you optimize the time and continue exploring this paradise called Ecuador.

    Alejandro did a great job. Very punctual and made a nice stop along the way for a break that included traditional music, lookout point and drinks. He made sure we saw both aspects (traditional and newer food sections) of the market and then took us to a very nice place for lunch
