Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Leave Quito and head out on the famed Pan-American Highway going north. 
    In to the town of Cayambe, where tasty ‘bizcochos’ are made fresh each morning. Watch as local men and women bake off  these biscuits in traditional wood ovens and sample a few of these buttery delights while they are still warm. 
    Continue on to Mira Lago, where you will find incredible views of Imbabura Volcano and San Pablo Lake. Take some photos before heading to Otavalo, where you will meet Otavaleños (natives) as they prepare for market. Wander the wares and barter for interesting items found only in Ecuador on the Quito Otavalo Marketplace.
    Continue on to Peguche, which is known for its handmade leather bags, belts and traditional workshop of Andean Instruments. You will have plenty of time to visit the village and do some shopping here.
    Then, in Cotacachi, visit the "Laguna Cuicocha for the chance to observe the changing colors of the volcanic waters.
    Enjoy some free time for lunch. 
    On the way back to Quito we will pick up passengers who stayed in Otavalo.

    Great tour guide and driver. Javier Marine was knowledgeable and nice. Tour highlights were the family house visits for us. Rest of the tour enjoyable. Shuttle bus could use an upgrade.

    I had a wonderful time. Carolina, the guide, was lovely and really caring towards the travelers. They had two young indigenous women sing some traditional songs on the bus, which was very nice. Then besides what's mentioned in the information about this tour, we stopped...More
