You will also have the opportunity to sample some traditional local snacks from the area here. Next, continue towards Otavalo, where you can visit the largest indigenous market in South America. Do some souvenir shopping or simply admire the stalls selling everything from paintings to traditional ponchos. Break for lunch at the market, where you have a wide variety of dining options. Finally, head to your final stop, the Laguna Cuicocha. Spend some time admiring this 3-kilometer wide crater lake.
