Otavalo Vacation Packages
Quito, which is the national capital, is located 35 miles (56 kilometers) southwest of Otavalo.
Staying in only one place, regardless of its popularity, usually only offers you a narrow window into the broader textures and qualities of a region. So try to allow a few days to savour Imbabura's other sights and attractions. Approximately 13 miles (21 kilometers) away you'll find Ibarra. Head here to see the La Merced Park and Basilica La Dolorosa.
Organise your transportation and head to Quito, a shopping and transport center for the region, situated some 35 miles (56 kilometers) from Otavalo. This regional center offers a number of points of interest, for example Quito Zoo, Atahualpa Olympic Stadium and Guayasamin Museum. San Francisco Church, Pasochoa Volcano and La Merced Church are other good spots to visit.
One of the best parts of world travel is discovering languages you aren't familiar with, so invest the time to pick up some basic Spanish during your time in Ecuador. "¿Querría bailar conmigo?" is useful. It means "Would you like to dance with me?" You'll find that knowing how to say "Este caballero pagará por todo", which means "This gentleman will pay for everything", can make all the difference.
At the end of your time in Otavalo, pack up your camera and mementos, spend your last of your U. S. Dollars on last-minute souvenirs, and bid Adiós (farewell) to this special place.
