Otavalo, Ecuador

Otavalo, Ecuador is about 3 hours south (from Tulcan, Ecuador) of the Colombia border in South America. This is a very nice town to stop in to recover for some rest. They have a nice food market and some cool sites to see. There are plenty of hotels and hostels to choose from and the food is cheap. You can easily find a hotel for under $10.00 USD here. You can get a heaping plate of food in the food market for about $1.00 USD.

 

 

They have an animal market that is fun to go and visit. If you enjoy shopping this is a great place to load up on the local artesian crafts. And of course there are plenty of places to hike in the surrounding mountains that loom over the town.

Parque condor is above the town in which you can see some great condors and eagles. The people are very friendly and cheerful.
