Otavalo

Located within driving distance of Quito lies the Otavalo Artisan Market. Shop, dine and explore this extraordinary market full of the colorful textiles and handicrafts of the highland people. You’ll find everything from ponchos to armadillo shell guitars, wall hangings to tagua nut jewelry. Just as Otavalo is famous for its textiles, many of the nearby towns are also well-known for their own particular crafts. As part of this tour there is an additional option to travel on to the town of Cotocachi, the center of Ecuador’s leather industry. *For the biggest market days, plan for this day to fall on a weekend.
