Some of the eagles and hawks are free to fly during the day, which makes this a great place to observe birds of prey soaring above a mountainous landscape.

  • The site welcomes rapineiras birds ranging from a simple steeple OWL the great Andean condor, with its wings of 3.5 m wingspan, the white head eagle, bird symbol of the USA ... According to said, are birds released from captivity and that have no more ability to hunt and that no longer readaptariam to nature. Depending on the time of the visit, you can watch a demonstration, in which a coach puts some of them to do overflights. Is an interesting ride and very different. Access to the site is not very easy. Must be done preferably by taxi because it is on top of a hill and a bit away from the Centre of Otavalo.

Where to stay in Otavalo

With the market town's growing international reputation, good quality accommodations have cropped up in Otavalo in recent years to meet the boom in tourism. Choose between characterful posadas (guesthouses) offering simple rooms in rustic buildings, or opt for one of the slightly larger hotels. Book early to avoid disappointment, given the relative lack of rooms available; alternatively, consider staying in Ibarra to the north, where the choice of lodgings is far greater.
