There is always one special trip, this was it!

A travel blog entry by womblepeter


We rarely take advantage of "tours" on our travels as we like to find our own way to places of special interest while trying to stay away from the tourist traps where the money flows to those people who don't necessarily need the cash.

The tour of places around Otavalo saw Vera and I driven to all the beauty spots and view points for four …

The day before Otavalo Saturday market

A travel blog entry by bruceontour


Bound for Otavalo where tomorrow is Saturday and it just happens to be the main market day of the week. Trouble being at the beginning of my trip, I don't really want to buy anything.

At least with a very late 11 am departure from Quito, there was no pressure to be on the road so a much needed short sleep in was well received. Just an …

Otavalo Day 2

A travel blog entry by alicecamel


Last night we ate at an Italian restaurant in Otavalo because they had live local music. The music was great, so was the food, but the service was terrible. Don´t go if you´re in a rush! We were also a bit worried because our cards had been refused at the cashpoint and we only had $40 on us so the next day shopping wasn´t looking too good. It was …

How many llamas can you fit in the back of a chevy

...two and a perturbed-looking sheep as we discovered at the early morning animal market in Otavalo.

Yesterday afternoon we left Quito for Otavalo, a market town about two and a half hours away from Quito. We´d brought books and playing cards to pass the time but we bearly picked up either. Views of mountains, towns and the winding …

New Year's Eve, Ecuadorian style.

A travel blog entry by kellyham

Day 144 - Dec31th, 2010.

We took the bus over to Otovalo, only 2.5 hours, for a night. Otovalo is famous for their Saturday market where the town sets up stalls on the streets and you can buy everything from arts and crafts to running shoes, to pots and pans. I bought a nice small throw for $10. The quality of the goods were …

    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.
