Otavalo is a beautiful Andean town populated mostly by the native indigenous peoples of the area. It is surrounded by the volcanoes: Cotacachi, Imbabura, and Mojanda. It also has a nearby lake called Lago San Pablo that offers a handful of water sports & recreational activities. Because the water is pretty cold year round, wearing a wetsuit is recommended. Otavalo is most well known for the Indigenous market in the central Plaza de Ponchos, where they sell colorful textiles, handcrafts, jewelry, Indigenous art, and much more. Near the market there is an Obraje Museum that includes textile exhibits and other ancient Indigenous made artifacts like wicker baskets and pots.
