the windows are large and the view is phenomenal. Sat on the wrong side - so get the side with the 4 seats for better views. They don't turn around, they just switch the engine so you are on the same side coming and going. Enjoyed the dancing and got to join in, though I didn't attempt the bottle on my head ;)

We had planned on a train ride for the family but it has closed down from COVID and may not reopen. Sad really.

Our agency in Ecuador has organized us a one day trip on this train on a route of the Andes. Despite being very close to the truck route, it was a great experience.

Pre-booked a trip via Internet from Ibarra to Salinas and back, which seemed to be the only service available starting near Otavalo. It was a comfortable and interesting ride on a refurbished diesel railcar. There was an informative commentary in both Spanish and English. We were accompanied in Ibarra by 6 armed motorcycle outriders, who ensured our safety and stopped the traffic at junctions to let the railcar pass - it felt like we were royalty going on a journey surrounded by members of our personal cavalcade! Fortunately the weather was fine, letting us see clearly the magnificent Andean scenery. This gave us us a real sense of the landscape and being in the high Andes that a stay in a nearby town could not. Thoroughly recommended.

seems there is a track repair still going on, so you take a public bus from Otavalo to Ibarra to catch the train. EVERY agent we spoke too had GOOD English. A pleasant ride, a chance to meet others tourists, and the bus ride was a hoot. (you don't have to eat at the restaurant that they send you to, but there is no other. We took a lunch.)
