Recently we took a day with the parents to go exploring. We were headed to a waterfall but took a different route, and ended up at the beautiful Lagunas de Mojanda.
From Otavalo a taxi will cost around $15. We started with a taxi but decided to do some walking, until a super nice couple told us to hop in the back of their truck.
I do love a back of the truck ride! The scenery was gorgeous along the way.
(If you look really hard dad, its a Landy on the road there…)
We were definitely glad of the truck ride, its a pretty far ride uphill! But well worth it to enjoy the gorgeous lakes.
It was a bit chilly, I’d definitely take a sweater next time!
We went on a Sunday afternoon and there were a few food stalls set up, I’d suggest packing a picnic! There were a number of families there for the afternoon, that’s one of the things I love here, local families seem to spend lots of time together and enjoy the parks and natural beauty.
So come visit and we’ll take you to the lakes!
