Ecuadorian Art

Let’s Go! From Quito. the adventure begins in the comfort of Las Palmeras Inn , a small hosteria in Quinchinche, near the famous Otavalo marketplace. We explore Intag, a remote cloud forest in a private preserve before changing cultures to visit Quito, the capital city and World Heritage site. We journey to Hacienda San Augustin in the Valley of the Volcanoes under the shadow of the stunning Cotopaxi volcano. Then the journey continues to the garden paradise of Hacienda Cusin. We visit the rim of a volcano, see the condor park, explore leather village of Cotacachi & visit the weaver’s home and workshop.
