Otavalo

— 4 nights
An Andean market town that has done business its own way for hundreds of years, Otavalo has a largely indigenous population.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Condor Park and Plaza De Los Ponchos Mercado. Get out of town with these interesting Otavalo side-trips: Ibarra (Parque Bulevar Centrica, Laguna de Yahuarcocha, &more) and Cuicocha (in Cotacachi). There's lots more to do: admire the sheer force of Cascada de Peguche, take in the spiritual surroundings of Iglesia El Jordan, get engrossed in the history at Museo Fabrica Imbabura, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Iglesia Matriz.

To find maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Otavalo trip itinerary planning site.

Quito to Otavalo is an approximately 2-hour car ride. You can also take a bus. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Tue) to allow time to drive back home.
