There are 43 indigenous communities located in Cotacachi province and several offer “a day in the life” experiences for visitors. This is a great way to learn how these communities farm and tend to their livestock. One such place is Loma Wasi which offers accommodations and a chance to assist in the daily chores.
There are several travel agencies offering a variety of indigenous experiences (EcuadorFace, Wasipunko Tours, Quichua Native Travel Tours, Runatupari Native Travel). These services connect visitors and inhabitants, enabling mutual learning and exchange, and establish a sustainable, economic activity in the region.
