    The very best Otavalo has to offer.

    Having spent $40 on another Otavalo we were surprised to get 5 star treatment at the El Indio hostal, (the sister to the high class Hotel El Indio), in Sucre street just a few steps from the main market place for just $30. We had a spacious room with en-suite and a balcony. The hostal ws very clean with all the necessary towels, hot water, drinking water and services. A great hostal in the right place at the right price.
    Highly recommended.

    The staff are really friendly, and the hotel is very clean and in a very good location right near the market. However there wasn´t any hot water in our room. It was pretty cold at night in the room but the bed had lots of blankets and kept you warm. I would recommend this hotel as long as you understand that it´s definitely not luxurious. I would go there again though - cleanliness and friendliness are important and this hotel had both of those.

Ken did the rounds of the local hostels, which were all expensive. We finally picked the first place Ken visited, next door to our lunch spot. We checked in, showered, and did some organising. Ken went for a couple of beers and to explore the nightlife in New Town, which is party central. Bus journeys are tiring so we had ...

It is situated in a park that grows many trees used for medicinal purposes. The building is used for exhibitions now. It was moved from the center of the town where it was used as a marketplace. The views from the top were amazing! The conversation flowed even in my broken Spanish. ...

(the kitchen is on the ground floor next to the orchids, the parrots and a courtyard where we can boot the ball back and forth. He comes up to me chattering away in Spanish eyes shining and I can’t understand a word he is saying. No comprende espanole. So we kick the ball. He is the child of one of the workers here at the hostel. ...

    I go to the park and sit and rest and watch the people. Young boys splashing water at Dad. A young boy with a soccer ball which he keeps sending close to a young girl. She get a foot on it once and sends it sailing. Three young guys with shaggy ungreased hair, pants half way down their butts. One clearly the alpha. He and one of his lieutenants have each a frozen sweet and are poking at their comrade who has none. Yep a bunch of thugs if I ...

I was just walking in for my late afternoon meal at the time, so I hung out at the restaurant. Actually there was no chance of walking outside. The next two days I explored the natural wonders and the market. I went up to a gorgeous waterfall and hiked around Pechuche. The 50ft waterfall is still used as an indigenous ceremonial site. I ...
