Stalls bow under the weight of vibrant textiles, mountains of spices fill the air with their rich aroma and locals wander past in traditional dress; this is the famous Otavalo market and a complete feast for the senses. Surrounded by the Andes snow-capped volcanic peaks, Otavalo’s cafes and laidback charm offer a picturesque spot to soak in the colorful indigenous culture.

Dating back to the pre-Inca period, the market is an incredible introduction to indigenous traditions, as well as a perfect place to practise your bartering and pick up some beautiful Andean handicrafts.
