Best locations Cotacachi

Welcome to rentinecuador.com

Cotacachi is a quiet village surrounded by fertile fields, green meadows, and expansive views, nestled in the Andean foothills at the base of the Cotacachi volcano. The village is located in northern Ecuador, in Imbabura province, between the cities of Otavalo and the much larger Ibarra. It has a population of approximately 8,000. 

Roughly 50% of the canton’s population is composed of indigenous kichwa people (descendants of the pre-colombian Aztecs).  There are 45 indigenous communities in the mountains surrounding Cotacachi.

In addition, Cotacachi is famed both as the “music capital” of Ecuador, and for its thriving artisan leather industry.  There are numerous shops in the village selling handcrafted, locally produced leather goods of the highest quality – and at a fraction of North American prices.
