Nestled amidst picturesque landscapes, Gualaceo beckons with its bustling markets, a hive of activity especially on Fridays and Sundays. Marvel at the skill of local artisans as they showcase handwoven shawls, ponchos, and a bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables.

Continue your journey to Bulcay, where the ancient art of Ikat weaving comes to life in vibrant hues and intricate patterns. Then, immerse yourself in the charm of Chordeleg, known as the ‘waterfall of gold,’ where artisans craft exquisite jewelry adorned with delicate filigree work.

We traveled to Quito in early 2024 and had the opportunity to delve deeply into the country's culture by visiting the museum. Later, at Casa Agave, we had a truly spectacular experience.
