From UIO airport to Hostal La Cuadra by bus

  • At Quito airport (UIO) take a taxi to the bus station Carcelen. Tell the taxi driver: In case the taxi driver does not speak English use the Spanish phrase: "Por favor al terminal de buses Carcelen" (It might be useful to write this on a piece of paper so you can let the driver read it).
  • At the Carcelen bus station board a bus that goes to Otavalo.
  • Once you have arrived at the Otavalo bus station change buses to a bus marked "Cotacachi por la pana".
  • Get off the bus at the main sqaure La Matriz. It is a nice park at your left with a church. You can take a look at our Cotacachi city map here.
  • Hostal La Cuadra is located half a block before arriving to the main square on the road the bus came into town.
