Saquisilí village hosts the largest and most important Indian market in the Cotopaxi Province – and one of the most ancestral in South America. Saquisilí is a completely different experience from Otavalo. Saquisili is more of a “unique cultural” sightseeing, is a more real Indian market. Here you have the chance to explore eight different plazas that contain diverse products offered by the merchants to the locals. You can combine your Saquisilí experience on Thursdays with a visit to the overwhelming landscape of the Cotopaxi volcano.

Saquisilí Village is located about 70 km south of Quito. This Indian market is dated before colonial times. This market is not exactly the best place to do your shopping but definitely the place to have a real cultural experience. Here visitors can admire a variety of unknown products and daily goods as well as the traditional animal market. This market takes place every Thursday.
Indigenous from different communities gather weekly to be part of the market, selling their products or interchanging with others, so it gives us the opportunity to interact with different ethical groups.
Lunch in a traditional restaurant is included. Upon request this tour may be combined with an afternoon drive through the Cotopaxi National.
