Getting There & Away

The northern highlands are well served by buses – Otavalo and Ibarra are major hubs. Taxis in the smaller cities like these are plentiful and cheap. There is a tourist train which runs from both Otavalo and Ibarra to the coast, but it's not used for normal passenger transport. The airport at the border city of Tulcán has been closed for several years now so you'll have to get to Quito and other points via bus.
