handicrafts in Otavalo, Ecuador

July 5, 2011 at 6:29 pm Leave a comment

Otavalo is where almost all the handicrafts sold in Ecuador are made… it’s home to an indigenous community that has thrived over the last century through their handicraft work. Unlike most other areas in Ecuador with large indigenous populations, Otavalo doesn’t suffer from poor infrastructure or bad schools and indigenous people make up the majority of the government here.

From the first moment here i felt the warmth of the people. There are some Spanish language schools here so if you’re looking for a quite town to study Otavalo is a very good choice!
