Otavalo is a great place to start your Ecuador trip. It's a gentle, traditional town with a large percentage of indigenous people. The villages around Otavalo are famous for their craftwork.

Otavalo has a big number of good value hotels in all price ranges. If you like, you can stay with local families in the neighbourhood for the time of your workshop. Those who bring their own tent, can also camp on the rooftop of the workshop. The dry season goes from June to September.

Quito Airport is 2 hours away from Otavalo. We can arrange a pick up. Please inform us, when your flight arrives. You can also take a taxi to Cayambe and from there a bus to El Quinche. From there, take a bus directly to Otavalo.
