Explore the markets and crafts of Otavalo.

Depart from Quito through the Pan-American North Highway until arriving to Cayambe, where the passengers will have the opportunity 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, we will make a brief stop at “Miralago”, to admire a wonderful view of Lago San Pablo, amazing views. 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 free time for lunch, (not included). Return to Quito picking up passengers in Otavalo (spot determined by Guide).
