Why We Love Cotacachi

    We first visited Ecuador in 2012. On that visit, we went south to Guayaquil and Salinas. In 2015 we returned to Ecuador, staying in Quito. We took a one-day-tour of the surrounding areas, which included Cotacachi.

This small mountain town captured our hearts immediately! We loved the scenic views at every turn – low-lying clouds, the rolling mountainous farmland, the vibrant culture, the shops and restaurants.

Cotacachi has a warm, relaxed, welcoming feel. The children are beautiful, the locals pleasant and friendly. Much of the architecture is quite old and beautiful. It is a community with a long and colorful history.
