Otavalo

3.8
An Andean market town that has done business its own way for hundreds of years, Otavalo has a largely indigenous population. Its market--one of the major attractions in Ecuador--features traditionally dressed locals selling handicrafts, the town meanwhile ticking at its own speed. Otavalo is well and truly on the backpacker map these days, but don't let the footfall put you off a visit. Surrounded by impressive volcanic peaks, plenty of the appeal of a trip to Otavalo lies in its picture-perfect aesthetics: the colors of the market, the idiosyncrasies of the locals' attire, and the peaks framing it all. Make sure you bring your camera. Otavalo is in Imbabura Province.
