On our way to Otavalo, you will discover hidden beauties along this route. Starting our adventure, we will stop to taste the delicious biscochos with hot chocolate, typical of the region, and you will learn about their artisanal production. After this first stop, get ready to visit the Quitsato Museum, where you will receive a masterclass on the ancestral knowledge of astronomy in this region. Without wasting time, we will continue our journey to Cuicocha Lagoon, one of the most famous natural attractions in our Andean area. To regain energy from these activities, we will head to a beautiful little town called Cotacachi, where we will have our delicious lunch and some free time to buy souvenirs if you wish. This town is renowned for its high-quality leather products. We will then pass through Peguche, a weaving village, and finally reach Otavalo, where we will visit workshops guided by locals who will enchant us with their ancestral culture and traditions.
