Well, we just can’t get enough of this beautiful little town in north central Ecuador! After a nice lunch at Hornados “Dona Mary” at the market up by the bus depot. ($2.50 each) we headed out on another ‘discovery walk’, this time to look at a small plot of land just on the outskirts of town that was for sale. The views of the mountains were just what we were looking for. Maybe a future home?…..
After having a look at the lot, we ventured further out of town down a dirt road and into a forested area of eucalyptus trees. The road meandered down towards a stream that had been redirected by concrete culverts to provide irrigation to local farms.
Further on we came across a tree lined country road with farms enclosed by high walls that had beautifully landscaped entryways. We walked for about a kilometer on this road before coming back into Cotacachi.
Once back in town, we came across some more painted murals and another nice door/window. It doesn’t matter where you walk in Cotacachi, there is always something beautiful to look at!
