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!

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!
