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.

The trip was terrific with great planning on your part. Most of the adventures were not mainstream and somewhat off the beaten path which made it especially enjoyable!! We felt taken care of and you all were readily available to respond to questions and issues. I would highly recommend your company and friends have already expressed interest based on our pictures and excitement.
