Your Latin Trails Guide will pick you up at your hotel lobby, you will head towards your next destination in a private vehicle. Half the fun will be getting there with many stops along the way leaving the beaten path and going off road. ie. on our Otavalo indigenous communities trip, we pass through at least 4 artisan workshops, visit 3 indigenous villages, meet 2 indigenous families and explore the largest craft market in South America. All this surrounded by volcanoes and lakes. Your guide will give onsite lectures and introduce you to local culture, if you prefer to be more active you have the option to hike around Cuicocha crater lake - a beautiful 4 hour walk inside the Cotacachi Cayapas reserve, you still get to visit the market, but you will skip a couple villages. Our tours are very flexible and our tailored to the interest of our travellers.
