Description

The Otavalo Market day tour is a wonderful way to discover and combine the famous artesian indigenous market in Ecuador and some of the amazing views outside Otavalo.

This tour begins with a scenic drive north of Quito through the Sierra highlands. Our first stop will be at Quitsato Sundial located at the Equator line, where you can balance on the equator! Then we’ll continue to Cayambe where we can taste and learn about the town’s famous bizcochos (local biscuits), here you can also have breakfast. From that point, we’ll continue to the famous market of Otavalo where you’ll have the option to purchase local handicrafts. The main market day in Otavalo is Saturday; however, this tour can be operated throughout the week (Tuesdays). Our professional guide will provide you an explanation of the indigenous people of this area, such as the Quitu-Cara, and other pre-Inca groups, and some extra information about the city. Afterward, we’ll go to the beautiful Laguna Cuicocha, which is located in a volcano crater and contains 2 green islands. Our last stop will be Cotacachi, a town famous for its leather garments. Before strolling through this town we receive lunch in a local restaurant. Afterward, we return to Quito.
