Full Day Otavalo

From your hotel we drive north of Quito, first we will make a short stop in a view point to see the landscape, and then we are going to cross the Equator line where the French mission went for first time. Continuing, we drive to another view point to have a panoramic view of the Imbabura and Cotacachi volcanoes, along with the San Pablo Lake. After this we will visit the most famous and colorful Indian Market in South America called the Plaza de los Ponchos. Here you will have the opportunity to buy souvenirs and share the culture with the local inhabitants. Then we are going to visit one of the best weavers in the area; also we can visit Cotacachi leather goods. Finally we will drive back to your hotel.
