The taxi ride from Otavalo to Cotacachi was only about 30 minutes. It was hard to believe we were still only about 3 hours outside of Quito. Our taxi driver wanted to drop us off in the center of town and be our driver back to Otavalo. We agreed for him to return to pick us up in 1.5 hours.
Cotacachi is known for its leather goods. Lots of leather stores in the small town. The main street is fairly upscale. After you have seen one leather store you have seen them all unless you are looking for something very specific.
After the 1.5 hours we had all the fun we could stand. Our taxi driver met us at the agreed upon location and took us back to Otavalo where we caught the bus back to Quito.
