Otavalo is located approximately two hours north from Quito in the Imbabura province. Surrounded by beautiful mountains like the Imbabura and the Cotacachi, the small city of Otavalo is the gathering place for hundreds of merchants where they come together to sell handicrafts, woven clothes, and musical instruments.

 As one of the largest indigenous markets in South America Otavalo brings together more than 500 different artisans and merchants that sell diverse products, ranging from alpaca sweaters to charangos (miniature guitar-like instruments native to Latin America), and other interesting artifacts.

You will also have a chance to listen to local songs and a beautiful explanation of the traditional  outfits by a local indigenous woman.
