  • Buy the famous hand-woven Panama hats in Quito
  • Get exquisite handicrafts at great bargains in Quito

Ecuador is a country of craftsmen, where often the craft or art is handed down through the generations. There are many choices from open-air handicraft markets to American style malls in Quito and you can shop till you drop for Quito’s exquisite handicrafts.

Bargains are galore in Quito, mainly for alpaca goods (scarves, sweaters and blankets), colourful hand-woven wall hangings, the famous Panama hats, inexpensive silver, and Tagua ivory. Be spoilt for choice as you stroll through an array of shops selling products ranging from textiles, wood carvings, leather and ceramics.

If you want some truly authentic souvenirs of your South American trip, then this shopping excursion offers the finest selection of crafts from all over Ecuador.

Itinerary

You will be picked up from your hotel (or closest pick-up point) and taken in a private air-conditioned vehicle for a guided Fine Arts Shopping Tour in Quito.

Arrive at the Mercado Artesanal La Mariscal. This is the biggest artisan market of the city, with a wide selection of Ecuadorian handicrafts located on Jorge Washington street, selling wooden carved figures, balsa wood birds, local Indian textiles, silver, Panama hats, tagua figures and native paintings amongst several others.

There are several other souvenir shops and street vendors in the city centre. One can be found on García Moreno (in front of the Palacio Presidencial). Nearby the same area you will find several street stalls selling crafts run by Otavalo Indians on Amazonas avenue (northeast of the Hilton Colón hotel).

Other interesting places to shop are the Galeria Latina and the Galeria Olga Fisch. (The places will be adjusted to suit your interests.)

At the end of your shopping tour, you will be dropped back at your hotel (closest drop-off point) in Quito.
