The Otavalo Tour starts early in the morning from Quito, using the Pan-American North Highway until arriving to Cayambe, where you will have the option to taste the delicious “Bizcochos de Cayambe”, a type of cracker or bread baked in a clay oven (greatly paired with local cheese or caramel sauce). Afterwards, the tour will make a brief stop at “Miralago”, to admire a wonderful view of Lago San Pablo. The tour then continues to Otavalo where Otavaleños (natives) set up a market in which a bartering manner of shopping is taken place. The market hosts a variety of different handcrafted items.
Passengers may choose between staying longer in Otavalo or go to visit to the leather shops at Cotacachi. On the way to Cotacachi, we will visit a traditional workshop of Andean instruments “Ñanda Mañachi” located in Peguche.
In Cotacachi you have enough time to visit the village, the shops of leather goods and time for lunch. Return to Quito.
