We’re happy to introduce you to Amy and Vanessa! They can help you with both purchase and rental properties in the Cotacachi area. Tell us more about what you need and we’ll send an introduction email.

Amelia And JP VLOG 272: We’re often asked by our viewers to show properties for sale in Ecuador so they can see what’s available and more easily visualize themselves living here. And since we love looking at properties, we have a lot of fun doing it!

In this video, we show you four properties for sale in and around Cotacachi. The first property is in La Casa de los Sueños, which is a picturesque condo development on the southeast side of town.

The second and fourth properties are in Sisipacha (aka the countryside) between Cotacachi and Otavalo about a 10 minute drive from the center of town.

The third property is in the beautifully landscaped gated community of El Encanto located about a 10 minute walk due north of Parque Central.

Here’s the link to our Cotacachi Neighborhood Tour.

Amy Prisco and Vanessa were kind enough to show us several for sale properties in the area. To see more of Amy’s listings in Crucita, Salinas, Cotacachi and other parts of Ecuador, visit her website here.

Amelia And JP VLOG 271: When we were considering a move to Ecuador, Cotacachi was near the top of the list along with Cuenca and Loja.

However, back in 2016 when we were researching our move abroad, we couldn’t find very much information about the neighborhoods and housing options around Cotacachi, which is why we wanted to record this video showing you where the expats like to live.

WE WERE TOTALLY UNPREPARED FOR THIS AT LAGUNA CUICOCHA (near Cotacachi Ecuador)

We’ve made it easy to follow in our footsteps to Ecuador! Take the Ecuador Expat Fast Track! 

Amelia And JP VLOG 270: Even though we have two wedding dates, our first NON-date is the most memorable and meaningful because it was so much fun and it was the start of something truly special.

This year, we were in Cotacachi, Ecuador for our anniversary and took the opportunity to film several videos while we were there.

Laguna Cuicocha or Cuicocha Lake is one of Ecuador’s most popular tourist attractions. It’s located a short 20 minute cab ride from the center of Cotacachi and costs $6 or $12 roundtrip.

If you want to hike the entire loop around the volcano crater lake, it’ll take about 5 hours so wear sunscreen, mosquito repellent, comfortable hiking boots, and several layers of clothing. Also take plenty of food and water.

After our hike, we went to Vandanam Indian Restaurant in Cotacachi, which is owned by Francis, our friend and Chinnu’s nephew. If you visit, be sure to tell him you saw this video!

We Went to the WORLD FAMOUS Indigenous Market in OTAVALO and THIS Happened! (near Cotacachi Ecuador)

Amelia And JP VLOG 269: A trip to Cotacachi wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Plaza de Ponchos, the world famous indigenous market in Otavalo, Ecuador!

Map: https://g.page/plaza-de-ponchos?share

We took a $6 cab ride from Cotacachi to the market on a Tuesday. The best day of the week to visit is on Saturday when they close off the streets and the market explodes to several times its normal size.

Unfortunately, Saturday was the only day we could film a real estate tour so we couldn’t go to the market that day. Besides, we try to avoid large crowds when we’re filming for a variety of reasons.

When you visit Plaza de Ponchos, be sure to tell Emelia that you saw her on our video!

EXPATS LOVE THIS WATERFALL HIKE NEAR COTACACHI!!! (Peguche Otavalo Ecuador)

Moving to Ecuador? Take the Expat Fast Track. Learn more here.

Amelia And JP VLOG 268: Las Cascadas de Peguche, or the Peguche Waterfalls, are located on the northeast side of Otavalo, Ecuador. It’s about a 30 to 45 minute walk from the center of Otavalo to the entrance to the park.

The Peguche Waterfalls sit at the base of the inactive Imbabura Volcano and the area surrounding the waterfalls is known as the most beautiful rainforest in Northern Ecuador.

Map: https://goo.gl/maps/zZzNJAjL8XBfte6A6

The trails are well maintained and it’s a pretty easy hike up to Mirador Arcoiris (Rainbow Lookout). You’ll also find some volcanic warm springs (we’ve been told they aren’t very hot), campsites and cabins that are popular with tourists.

We went on a Wednesday so there weren’t many people around. It was super relaxing and muy tranquilo.

NOW WE KNOW WHY EXPATS LOVE COTACACHI ECUADOR!!!

Pre-order our NEW Ecuador Expat Fast Track eCourse and save 35%. Get all the deets here.

Amelia And JP VLOG 267: We FINALLY made it to Northern Ecuador and it DID NOT DISAPPOINT! Now we know why expats love this area!

The city of Cotacachi is very clean, has lots of excellent restaurants and coffee shops, plenty of expat-oriented housing options, and the views are spectacular!

It was a short 90 minute drive from the Quito airport to Cotacachi. The highways were good and the views were amazing.

We stayed in an AirBnB on the east side of town, about a 10 minute walk to the main city center. It was affordable, clean and the hostess was very nice, but the accommodations were a bit too rustic for me.

Amelia enjoyed “glamping” and we both enjoyed the dogs, but I prefer something a little more modern. The suicide shower head wasn’t sufficient to overpower the cold mountain spring water so the showers were few and FAST.

If you’re interested, here’s a link to the place we stayed.
