Saquisili Recommended

Saquisili is a typical mountaintown in Cotopaxi. The little town sleeps almost the entire week, but on Thursday it comes alive. The big local market attracts salesmen and farmers from the entire province to sell their fruits, vegetables, meat and a lot of other things used by farmers.

The market is the heart of the town and shows you the local culture in a nutshell. Everybody shows up in their traditional clothing, which makes for a colorful sight.

 The Thursday market is not considered a tourism event. You will have a hard time finding a souvenir here.

The market makes for a great daytrip from Quito and can be combined with a visit to places like Latacunga or Pastocalle.
