Loved this tour to Cotacachi the "Leather Capital of Ecuador". With over 50 separate leather shops in the city, we explored the ones Stefy is most impressed with - bags, shoes, jackets it is all there in an array of styles and colours. Strefy's genuine personal interest in the wares insures that she lingers on the items, so we have time to admire them. All of Stefy's tours are enjoyable and captivating and this one is no different.

I only stayed for 10 minutes. We looked at some interesting wall paintings and then just in shops!
