Otavalo & Cuicocha Lagoon Day Tour
Enjoy a cultural adventure on the Otavalo & Cuicocha Lagoon Day Tour. In the morning, you will take a short hike on the crater of the most beautiful lake in Ecuador, Cuicocha Lagoon. Here you will learn about wild flora and ancient rituals practiced in the area. Next, you will visit an indigenous family and be treated to a traditional ceremonial lunch called a Pachamanka. An experience you surely will not forget! After lunch, we drive to Peguche, where you will learn about handmade craft techniques still practiced by the Quichua. Lastly, we travel to the Otavalo market where you can browse Plaza de Ponchos. It will be around 3pm so fairly quiet compared to the mad rush of the morning. Here you will be able to find a few souvenirs. The tour is limited to 8 people so can enjoy a more intimate experience with your guide.
