One of the best things we did on the trip is spend a Saturday roaming the street stalls of Otovalo. Every craft and food you can imagine is available and this is one of the best places to see the local people, purchase gifts, and sample local food.

On Saturdays, locals setup tents with tables and chairs and cook local food including chicken, fish, pork and lots of potatoes and vegetables. There are also many vendors selling veggies, fruits and other foods and snacks. A must see in Otavalo.
