Early in the morning we drive north through the Panamerican Highway, crossing the town of Calderon; famous for bread doll figures. We pass by Cayambe surrounded by the heavily cultivated pastures of old haciendas.
We stop at the San Pablo Lake where there is a fine viewpoint at the border of the Imbabura province. Here we can taste famous traditional varieties of cheese and salty biscuits.
Shopaholics, and even those that like the odd souvenir will be delighted by the Otavalo Market. The Otavalos are the most ambitious and wealthy merchants in Ecuador. Ponchos, wooden items and jewelry are sold here. Then we visit the Cotacachi Cayapas Reserve where we can see one of the most amazing sceneries of Ecuador at the Cuicocha Lake. After that we arrive to the village of Cotacachi famous for the quality of leather goods at unbelievable prices. Shops along the main streets are filled with bags, saddles, jackets, boots, vests and purses for which the city is well known.
