PLAZA DE PONCHOS-SHOPPING
The center of Otavalo and only a few miles from the Lodge.  Absolutely the best shopping in the country!  There is a handicraft market each day but Saturday is the big day.  Artisans from all regions of the country offer their crafts.  Beware of the slick pickpockets!

ANIMAL & LIVESTOCK MARKET
Saturday only.  Located on the panamerican highway on the west side of town.  Get tere early as the best deals happen between 6:00 and 8:00am.                                                                                                      See a Video

FOOD AND PRODUCE MARKET
At the top of Calle Jaramillo.  Plenty of local color every day, but especially on Saturday.  The old timers come in from the hills for their weekly chores.  A must see!                                                                                       See a Video
