    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.

    A group of us went on an organised trip and were first taken to the Otavalo animal market, a couple of hours from Quito. I don't think anything could have prepared me for what I witnessed at this market. Stepping off of the bus you are immediately entered into chaos.

    blocked up the doors so it got really smoky and hot, and completely dark. We
    expected there to be a couple of people in there as it was a small place, but
    when they came out there were about 15 in there! There was loads of drumming
    and chanting going on, and it seems they are expected to hallucinate. The

Next is a visit to "Cascada de Peguche" (a waterfall). It too is beautiful and very powerful. All too soon it is time to make the two hour drive back home. Amb and I ask Paco to stop so we can buy Elena some roses…a dozen long stem roses (with no thorns) at just…are you ...

    Once this project was finished, we began planting bamboo up the banks of the river and replanting the nursery. This was the most challenging of our tasks, as it took many hours of hard work. However, with the power of our friendship we overcame this and we completed all of our work.

    Noa: 11/5/13

    On Saturday, we woke up in Pasto and then crossed the border to return to Ecuador. After we had our passports checked, we took a bus to Otavalo. It is such a beautiful town. I was really really excited to go for the second time. We stayed at the same hostel that we did six week before, Riviera Sucre. When we arrived, we had our laundry done and then went to dinner. I had a ...
