Day tour from/to Otavalo or Cotacachi. Otavalo’s beauty lies in its people and the towering volcanoes that surround the Andean town. The Otavaleños are a very prosperous community of skilled textile weavers, who gather to sell their products at the market in the city of Otavalo as they have done for centuries, as regional markets have played an important role in Indian life, providing regular gathering places for trade and socializing.
This tour is special because we will visit some, micro-enterprises family owned and a women association in two communities surrounding Otavalo. Those projects are a form of income and employment for the local population. We will visit a dreamcatcher workshop to see the process of the creation and where you will make your own. But also a textile handicraft workshop with a demonstration of weaving and presentation of the Otavalos Culture, and a Tagua workshop.
Lunch - Andean soup, Andean main meal and Fresh juice (specify if you have food restrictions)
