Otavalo Day Tour

“An endless indigenous market with so many things to buy!”

This full-day excursion is the perfect way to discover just how impressive Ecuador’s Otavalo Market is. It’s the largest indigenous market in South-America. So we’re sure that you will find many souvenirs!

On the way to the market in Cayambre, we stop and eat some bizcochos, a local specialty and witness firsthand how these are made. On arrival in Otavalo, a bustling town surrounded by scenic mountains, we head to the market and can enjoy all the beautiful handicrafts and local culture. Afterwards, we will visit Cuicocha lake for scenic views.
