Otavalo and around

Otavalo is set in beautiful countryside which is well worth exploring. Its enormous Saturday market, featuring a dazzling array of indigenous textiles and crafts, is second to none and is absolutely not to be missed. It's best to travel on Friday, in order to avoid overcrowded buses on Saturday and to enjoy the nightlife. For learning more about how local crafts are made, a visit to surrounding villages is interesting.
