Hacienda Cusin

While Otavalo's Poncho Plaza is filled with vendors 7 days a week, the major market day is Saturday.  From pre-dawn hours, the town is bustling with activity.  The action starts at first light in the animal market, where pigs, chickens, calfs and other livestock change hands.   Meanwhile in the Poncho plaza, porters arrive staggering under the weight of towering bundles of weavings twice their size. Day visitors from Quito arrive starting around 10 AM.

Other popular excursions include hiking to mountain lakes, and village visits .
