The indigenous town of Otavalo is famous across South America for its handicraft market and colourful inhabitants, but the area also offers far more.
Otavalo, a small town 2 hours north of Quito, has the biggest Indian handicraft market in South America. But it is not only famous for its typical handicraft, wood, weaving and souvenir markets; but as well as for its landscape. Beautiful lakes, Indian villages, high peaks and natural reserves surround the Otavalo area.
