Otavalo & Beyond


Travelling north out of Quito into the province of Imbabura the landscape opens up all around, revealing green valleys, snow-capped volcanos, and glistening lakes. Delving deeper into Ecuador’s heartlands you encounter a new society who has carved out its own culture in harmony with its surroundings.
My SachaJi is the ideal springboard to explore this world of natural and cultural wonders, its celebrated artisanal crafts and opportunity for light adventure.
Hike to the waterfalls of Peguche, where Indigenous people come from all around to perform rituals of purification, or around Cuicocha, a crater lake at the foot of a volcano. You could discover the sun dial and astrology that create the Andean vision of the cosmos with the Quitsato Project at the Middle of the World, or the mysterious pyramids of Cochasqui.
Buy beautiful, one-of-a-kind leather goods from the tanneries of Cotacachi, or join the award-winning Tren Ecuador for a fun and historical train journey delving into some of the country’s most intriguing landscapes and communities.


Located 15 km from My SachaJi in the heart of Ecuador’s Imbabura region, Otavalo is a unique expression of cultural identity, a melting pot of pre-Columbian Incan and Spanish colonial traditions.
Best known for its weaving, leather workshops and market selling artisanal wears, the town is a treasure trove for exploration and discovery.
Wandering around the looms and market stalls (making sure to pick up beautiful textiles and leather goods) you will encounter the characters – the women in their white blouses, gold necklaces and brightly coloured skirts, and men in elegant trilby hats, white trousers and blue ponchos – and folklore that make this community so special.

Our volunteer programs, as well as creating positive bonds with the community through a true exchange of ideas and services, bring you closer to earth and help to make you relaxed and happy.

Working alongside the women of the Indigenous Angla community on their shared herb garden, volunteers can gain a rare insight into Andean culture and a deeper understanding of medicinal plants and horticulture.
