Images of Ecuador: Quito and Otavalo

posted in: Adventure, Buddies, Inspiration, Travel

Upon arrival in Ecuador we immediately thrust ourselves into the sprawling city of Quito (population 1.8 million). Sometimes it’s nice to surround yourself with the sights, colors and sounds of a hectic metropolis. We buzzed around the city on motorbikes, witnessed an epic hailstorm and finished off with a workout at “the highest CrossFit in the world,” CrossFit Quito.

After getting our city fix we shot north to take refuge in the countryside of Otavalo. Here we were on a mission to seek out a shaman for a pre Cotopaxi summit blessing. Little did we know what that would entail…

    I was wondering if Otavalo has a crossfit? probably unlikely, but we are thinking of moving to the cotacachi/otavalo area in a year or two from the states and one of the biggest things I’d miss from here is my crossfit- I go 3-4 times weekly- let me know if you know anything! Thanks!

      Hi Andriana,
      We didn’t see a box in Otavalo, but there was a courtyard/playground area in the center of town that could be useful for a creative WOD 🙂
