Where you’ll be

Laguna de San Pablo, Provincia de Imbabura, Ecuador

Imbabura GEOPARK (UNESCO) is located in the North Inter-Andean region of the Republic of Ecuador. It is known for its multitude of lakes and magnificent geological formations, such as the Peguche Falls (30 minutes by car). The highest summit is this Geopark, the 4,939 meter high Cotacachi Volcano (940 minutes by car), is located within the Catacachi Cayapas Ecological Reserve.
In the south-central part of the province are the villages of Cotacachi (40 minutes drive from SachaJi) and Otavalo (20 minutes drive from SachaJi) surrounded by dispersed indigenous communities, native Andean plantation fields and historic Spanish haciendas. These areas have a history of being a major tourist attraction due to their location close to the capital city, stunning scenery and rich indigenous cultures known worldwide for their textile markets, festivals, music and warmth.


This area is currently inhabited by different ethnic groups that speak Spanish and the traditional Quechua language. The main activity in the province is agriculture, tourism and commerce. Its production of handicrafts has made its indigenous people, mainly from Otavalo, famous around the world. The province is also known for its bread flute music and Cotacachi-Cayapas Ecological Reserve.

Imbabura's hotel facilities and tourist infrastructure are among the best in the country. Home to countless lakes and other bodies of water, Imbabura is also a great spot for fishing and adventure sports.
