Cayambe Recommended

Cayambe is considered to be the cheese capital of Ecuador. If you are looking for a tasty piece of cheese (in Ecuador this is hard to find), Cayambe is a great place to go.

As soon as you get into town, you can see all the shops along the road, selling delicious cheese!

With good cheese goes a good cracker, Cayambe is the proud owner of some of the best bakeries of northern Ecuador. All the cheese shops will sell you crackers to go with your cheese.

If you are just on your way back to Quito from Otavalo or other places north, Cayambe is not a bad place to stop. Unfortunately, Cayambe doesn't have that much else to offer to tourists. The town doesn't offer any great attractions, eventhough the folklore is quite interesting.

In the area surrounding Cayambe, you can find some interesting villages like La Chimba, where you can see the traditions of the Andean cultures.
