Day 1: Otavalo and Cuicocha Lake

One day geographical and cultural tour. Drive to Guachala, a community transected by the equator, and pass through Cayambe on the way, here you are able to taste bizcochos one of the local delights, and learn more about the making process. Arriving in Otavalo, visit the famous Indian Market which dates back to pre-Inca times. Finally you'll visit Cotacachi, which has good leather shopping opportunities, and Cuicocha - the ancient eroded volcanic crater, famous for its deep lake found within. Views of the lake and surrounding mountains are excellent when the weather is good.

This tour runs daily, but it is recommend to arrange it on a Saturday.

We are so glad that we chose Adventure Life. The service is top-notch. Everything is well taken care of and we just have to print the documents and go. Franny even gave us timely updates on possible airport strike.
