This little village in the middle of nowhere is famous for its hot springs and the amazing handicrafts they make and sell for a very good price. After walking around and a dip in the hot springs it is time for a local lunch, then you hit the road again to drive through the incredible mountains. Dinner is served in a beautiful Hacienda with views over the Cayambe volcano, Cotacachi volcano and Cayambe city. You also spend the night here.
DAY 2 (B,L)
CAYAMBE FOOTHILLS HACIENDA – OTAVALO CITY – PEGUCHE FALLS
A delicious breakfast will be served at 8.00. After that you have time to walk around, to take a look at all the animals at the farm (llamas, alpacas, horses and cows) before your private driver takes you to Cayambe where you visit the local factory where they make the very famous Cayambe Bizcochos. Of course, you have to try these fresh bizcochos with cheese and dulce de leche. Next stop is the Otavalo Indigenous market where you can shop around and where you will have a local lunch. Next, it is time to visit the Peguche waterfall where you can hike for one hour. The driver will drop you off at Hosteria Casa Sol.
