LAS PALMERAS INN
For hundreds of years, Otavalo has hosted one of the most important markets in the Andes, a weekly fiesta that celebrates the gods of commerce. Vendors hawk a dizzying array of handmade traditional crafts.
The market tradition stretches back to pre-Incan times, when traders would emerge from the jungle on foot, ready to conduct business.
The exquisite weavings and textile-making skills of Otavaleños are still a source of high-fashion amongst the local women and are readily available in the market. Otavalo – a fantastic opportunity to experience old world trading in the modern era.
