Leave Quito and head out on the famed Pan-American Highway going north. 

In to the town of Cayambe, where tasty ‘bizcochos’ are made fresh each morning. Watch as local men and women bake off  these biscuits in traditional wood ovens and sample a few of these buttery delights while they are still warm. 

Continue on to Mira Lago, where you will find incredible views of Imbabura Volcano and San Pablo Lake. Take some photos before heading to Otavalo, where you will meet Otavaleños (natives) as they prepare for market. Wander the wares and barter for interesting items found only in Ecuador on the Quito Otavalo Marketplace.

Travelers can choose to stay in Otavalo, or continue on to Cotacachi, which is known for its handmade leather bags, belts and other items. Visit in Cotacachi a traditional workshop of Andean Instruments. You will have plenty of time to visit the village and do some shopping here. Enjoy some free time for lunch. 
On the way back to Quito we will pick up passengers who stayed in Otavalo.

We didn’t need the stop to see the traditional faith healer. The local who came on board the bus to sing and sell her products was annoying. Otavalo needs to improve. Vendors don’t sell unique one of a kind handmade products. All Looks factores made.

Loved our time at the Otavalo Market! Bought gifts for stocking stuffers this holiday season!

Great tour! My only complaint was that, since I wasn't actually staying at my pickup hotel, it was hard to find out what time the bus was actually coming to pick me up. I had to ask my hotel to call the night before.

The weather and sights are amazing in June. This is a full day. The street market in Otavalo was colorful and fun. Quite a contrast to the leather town of Cototaxi. The lunch spot was an authentic Ecuadoran restaurant filled with locals, delicious and a good value.
