An Andean market town that has done business its own way for hundreds of years, Otavalo has a largely indigenous population.
Kids will enjoy Zoológico de Quito and El Lechero. Explore Otavalo's surroundings by going to Cuicocha (in Cotacachi) and Quitsato (in Cayambe). There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Condor Park, stop by Tahuantinsuyo Weaving Workshop, browse the eclectic array of goods at Otavalo Market, and admire the sheer force of Peguche Waterfall.

To find more things to do, where to stay, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Otavalo visit planner.

Quito to Otavalo is an approximately 1.5-hour car ride. You can also take a bus. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 6th (Sun) so you can travel to Atuntaqui.
