OTAVALO – SHARED DAY TOUR
Enjoy a cultural day, 1,5 hours north of Quito. This area is special because there are still a lot of Indigenous people (Kichwa) living here. The landscapes are also really beautiful, something that you can already enjoy on the road to Otavalo. This handicraft capital of Ecuador is a beautiful and vigorous city. It is home to a large indigenous population located in the Imbabura Province. With approximately 92,000 inhabitants and surrounded by the Imbabura, Cotacachi and Mojanda volcanoes it is a gorgeous and enchanted town. You can embark upon a complete tour with us.
