Explore the Northern Andes

They offer spectacular scenery and many wonders to explore, from the famous Otavalo market, skilled woodcarvers who keep the spectacular Quito School alive, diverse and ancient cuisine, Andean music that mingles with African American music, and bridges over cliffs and tunnels that pierce the bowels of the Andes. Fertile fields in the foothills of the Andes are combined with Andean peoples and dry forest while moving by train from temperate Otavalo towards warm Salinas de Ibarra.
