17/17 One of the stands in Otavalo in their huge market on Saturdays. Otavalo is only 2 hours away from Quito, and everyone who visits Ecuador should go there. During my visit there, I saw the President of Ecuador, and enjoyed the parades for the festival Yamor that took place that weekend. Otavalo is rich with indigenous life, and the perfect place to buy souvenirs! In summary, this was one of the best experiences in my life, and ELI played a big part in making that possible. I would suggest to everyone to consider one of the programs. Ecuador was a phenomenal choice, I can't wait to go back and visit! My host family, the children, Quito, and the traveling all combined for an unforgettable experience.
