Otavalo, Ecuador

We will be leaving Ecuador in less than two weeks. We’ve been in the same apartment for our whole stay here. That’s a record for us. Before we depart the country we are going to get out of Quito for a night and check out Otavalo, Ecuador. Why are we going there? Apparently, it has the largest outdoor market in all of South America. The big market day is Saturday and it is busiest in the morning. Since the 110 km bus trip will take about 2 hours, we are heading out Friday afternoon. That way we just need to wake up at a reasonable time and head over to the market, rather than either missing out on the Saturday morning activity or having to get up before sunrise to catch an early bus.

The location is approximate. I’ll try to remember to update it once we have arrived.
