The Equator? I've crossed it dozens of times.

... apparent that many towns in Ecuador try to become famous for one thing or another. Everyone in town competes with each other. We drove through one town that sells clown figurines, another sold pants (hundreds of pairs on mannequins lining the streets) and another sells wood carvings. After our long day out, the kids stayed in and we went out with Suzy and Pepe to their local town square, which was beautiful, and had some wine and dinner and terrific ...

El Mercado Grande de Otavalo

... Cuesta? (How much is it?) Seller: $30 Me: Es muy caro! No soy una mujer rica! (That's really expensive! I'm not a rich woman!) $20? Seller: $27 Me: $25. Mi amiga pago solo $20 ayer. (My friend only paid $20 for one yesterday.) Seller: $25? Me: Sí por $25 I pay and life moves on... Some of the things I bought are gifts for folks back home so I don't want to say too ...

Otavalo - The Gorgeous Market Town

A travel blog entry by dan_and_casey


... meat, mostly bone), which was right to be questioned - we were both sick by the following day! After having some medication, we packed and departed for the town, sharing a taxi with the Canadians from the night before.

In town we waited for midday and Antonio to arrive, the Quito local who we would be couchsurfing (staying) with for a few days in Ecuador - he was supposedly working in the area and had agreed to pick us up from Otavalo. ...

Otavalo Markets and Lake Cotacachi

A travel blog entry by katyflo


... just to take in the views.

Such a mixture of a day but completely worth the trip for what I saw. The animal market wasn't the most pleasant experience but this is exactly the kind of thing I wanted to see from other cultures.
The street market was just so much to take in and I'd definitely want another trip here when interior shopping!
Finally the lake... what a view and I'd love the opportunity to do the full hike some day.

Dancing with children

... up on the local gossip?

We are staying at Hacienda Cusin, an old family farm founded in 1602, that must be the cutest hotel in northern Ecuador! There are glass double doors leading to my room which comes with double bed and full bathroom. Last night when I went to bed, I found a hot water bottle hiding under the sheets. The restaurant in the hotel uses only vegetables ...

    Set on the edge of town, this beautiful posada is a gem that's worth seeking out. Beautiful gardens, wonderful friendly staff and great service. Maggie goes out of her way to make sure every guest feels welcome and has what they need.
    The restaurant is the absolute best in town--actually, there isn't anywhere in town to compare, but it would be great in Quito, too. It's just that good. Ask for the quinoa encrusted shrimp w/pineapple salsa, and for breakfast their included meal is superb, but for something different our last day we tried the quinoa pancakes with blackberry syrup. Ymmmmm.

    We stayed at La Posada Del Quinde for 3 nights - The grounds were very beautiful, location superb, staff wonderful! Maggie helped with anything we needed and even called to change our reservations in Quito so we could stay at her hotel an extra night.

    The dining area and fireplace were so comfortable- The smell of wood burning was so nice in the morning with coffee and fruits. The included breakfast was delicious and the dinners were also quite nice. I had an avocado cheese sandwich one night which really hit the spot. The owner is American but she hasn't raised prices like you'd think - Everything is reasonable for the location and compared to competition.

    I'd definitely recommend this hotel!
