We will see everything about the process of growing, harvesting and exporting roses. We will have lunch at a beautiful viewpoint, and then finally we arrive at the Otavalo market or “Plaza de Ponchos” showing varied handmade indigenous handicrafts. Free time to explore the market for doing spectacular photography and shopping. We’ll be back in Quito approximately at 17h30. End of this unforgettable experience in the northern Andes of Ecuador!
