About this trip

 

Walk in the middle of colors, fabrics, precious  metals, wood and nice characters that give life to one of the most  famous indigenous markets in Ecuador and South America

Ecuador homes hundreds of traditional  indigenous markets that have survived the passage of time and political  and social changes. The indigenous markets still reflect the agony of  the people for the hard work on the farm activities and the eagerness to  obtain an economic income to solve perhaps only their basic needs  selling their textiles, food, and handicrafts. Many indigenous people  have not realized that this activity, which is still taking place in  several small cities in the country, has attracted national and foreign  citizens to admire the skills of the indigenous people in  developing and selling their goods.

Itinerary

Daily tour to Otavalo
Exploring the market

 Two hours of travel from Quito will be enough to reach out to Otavalo. The city hosts the most dinamic market in the region. As we move north, we will  take several first-order roads that will allow us to see an Andean  scenery with variations due to its climate, height and especially its  people. We will take several photos of the  attractive places and admire the northern part of the popular avenue of  the volcanoes, which depending on the weather condition to be spotted, one of thouse colossus is the ice summit known as by the natives as Cayambe volcano. Later on, the rose plantations are shown as part of the route,  covering large extensions of this great valley. It is time to take a  break and taste a local biscuit called "biscocho" that will be served along with a leaf cheese and a delicious coffee grown nearby but in  lower hillsides. In our eyes, the nice town of Otavalo appears, where  its population is mostly indigenous. When parking, our guide will give  us useful guidelines so that we can discover more about the market. The  adventure continues with a delicious typical lunch of this region. Then,  we will advance to another small but cozy town like Cotacachi; the town  of the leather shops. Finally, we return to Quito with homesickness and  the promise to return.
