      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.

      In the morning Simone had an email back from the Secret Garden hostel in cotopaxi and there was space. Due to the hostel being in the middle of nowhere you need to get transportation to the hostel. They have a sister hostel in Quito where if you stayed there you could get the shuttle for $5 but if you hadnt you would need to get the private taxi which was $40 for the car. We booked it and told them to pick us up from Bontiquito at 3pm, that should be enough time to go ...

      ... we got back to Quito we rested for a bit before going out to a Middle Eastern restaurant for dinner. It was very similar to the shawarma places in Guayaquil. I enjoyed my chicken shawarma wrap but Dave wasn't so keen on one or two of the things he got on his mixed plate. A couple on the table next to us were smoking hookahs provided by the ...

      From the animal market, we continued to the main event of the day, our walk at Cuicocha Crater. A true caldera, rather than a crater, the lake formed after a post-eruption collapse eons ago. ...

      ... What I wasn't expecting to see was puppies and kittens for sale. I've never seen trays and cages of puppies for sale in my life and it's not something I'd like to witness again. Seeing cats and kittens crawl over each other in a tiny cage was an uncomfortable watch. It's easy to judge and say it's cruel. In my eyes it is but we all had to remind ourselves we're not in our first world countries and this is just how it is here.

      A lovely day around the markets
      today. The locals said that if we cared about animal welfare it was best to
      avoid the livestock market this morning so we gave that a swerve, although when
      the others came back they said some of it was really cute – baskets of guinea
      pigs, alpacas and piglets everywhere. They did say some of it was awful – half
      dead chickens and crates of puppies for sale – I’d have ended up ...
