Quito to Cuzco (Return Trip)

by Alex4vt

Hi there,

please comment if you have any info on this:

I am traveling in November and December.

Looking to travel Quito To Cuzco. Airlines online are 500$+...

Anyone ever traveled on a charter flight for cheap ? Anyone have connections with travel agents down there ?

Train: Is there a train I can take ? How long is it ? Connections ?

Bus: I heard it takes 2+ days and buses dont show up on time etc.

What is most recommended way of traveling ?

Thanks to everyone that replies.

Alex

Hi,

I travelled from Colombia, via Quito, down to Cusco all by bus and they were fine! They may not be amazingly on time but they weren't that bad either... I went from Quito to Guayaquil, Lima, then Cusco. Do it!

Lydia.

Hi Lydia,
I am hoping to do the same this summer. Any links or info that you may pass along for pre-trip planning, or did you figure it out at the various bus stations?
Thanks. Susan

Travel Tips for Quito

pedestrian bridges

by b1bob

Quito has numerous pedestrian bridges over areas of high traffic. Some are between cliffs over busy highways and some are painted all manner of colours. I hadn't seen so many pedestrian bridges in any other city before. These bridges are helpful because there are many heavy-traffic intersections that it would take a month of Sundays to safely cross on the ground. It also makes sense to build these overpasses from a safety standpoint.

Ají

by b1bob

Folks down here add a sauce called ají to about everything short of their Fruit Loops at breakfast. This sauce contains tomatoes and certain types of peppers. It can range from mild to very spicy so ask if the ají is PICANTE (hot) or SUAVE (mild). The use of ají around here is so common that even the multinational fast food restaurants have to cater to this local taste. Here is one of many variations to the sauce:

2 bunches cilantro, stems removed
1/2 cup olive oil
3 jalapeños, quartered
1/2 teaspoon salt
water, as needed

In a blender add the cilantro, oil, jalapenos and salt. Pulse, adding water as needed until it's well blended but not runny.

Dough Ornaments in Calderon

by JessieLang

Calderon is a suburb north of Quito. The masapan factory is worth a visit. They make the most incredible dough ornaments and statues. We watched one of the artisans making tiny triangles of dough into “fur” for a row of llama cutouts.

To get to Calderon from Quito, take any of the green buses marked "Calderón" which leave from La Marín in the old town.

On arrival in Calderon, from the central square (la plaza) with your back to the church, take the road to the right, leading slightly uphill - it´s called Carapungo. You will find several shops selling the famous bread dough figurines. Go to the shop further up on the left that has its craftswomen working in the shop and they are happy to demonstrate the process of making the figurines.

MERCADO ARTESANIA LA MARISCAL

by swesn

Just like Mexico City has La Ciudadela Artisan Market, Quito's equivalent... albeit less lively, atmospheric, smaller and memorable... is La Mariscal Artisan Market.

In northern Ecuador, Otavalo is certainly THE place to satisfy all your woolly needs. But if you want to get souvenirs of other kinds or if you are not heading to Otavalo, then La Mariscal Artisan Market is a great place to make your purchases.

While you will certainly find woolly sweaters, hats, etc..., you will also find other crafts made from wood, bags, paintings, etc... The reproductions of Guayasamin's paintings are certainly found in abundance here.
