Otavalo Tour

Otavalo is a city located in the province of Imbabura, north of Ecuador. The Imbabura volcano and some others are very close. Here we find the world famous “Mercado de Otavalo” or “Plaza de los Ponchos ”, where locals wear traditional indigenous clothing and market outfits and fabrics colorful in addition to handicrafts. We have near Otavalo the Cuicocha Volcano, a beautiful extinct volcano with a lagoon on the edge of it

This place is in the center of town on a walking only street. There are many exhibits to view about the territory, the skills of the people with the tools used to weave, crush corn etc. Upstairs is a music school so sometimes you will hear people playing horns, etc.

This museum is small, it is also free. The main theme is leather and musical culture of the city. The street it’s on is closed off to traffic. There is also a beautiful white building next to it. It’s right next to the central plaza and church, you can’t miss it.
