The Otavalo Market is one of Ecuador’s most famous Touristic features, not only for the beauty of the
landscapes but also for the Indigenous Community that leaves here: The Otavaleños, a very prosperous
community of skilled textile weavers, they are known for their hard work and for being proud of their cultural
heritage, their way of life, traditions and the clothing have not changed through the years. You can find their
beautiful handcrafts at the Famous Otavalo Market at “La Plaza de los Ponchos”. The Otavalo market is
most popular on Saturdays; however, it is open every day. Otavalo is surrounded by beautiful landscapes
with many lakes, impressive volcanoes and natural reserves.
