Cayambe Travel Guide: 22 reviews and 73 photos
Cayambe is my moms home town . It is located in the middle of the road between Quito and Otavalo. Most of the time this little town is over looked.
One of the most popular things to do here and what Cayambe is known for is its bizcochos and queso de hoja. They are yummy. Cayambe is an important center for cattle, dairy and the cultivation of roses.
Cayambe is located Northeast of Quito, about 65 kilometers and is located 25km west of Otavalo. Cayambe also has the third highest mountain/volcano in Ecuador and it is the highest point where the equator passes through. It is 18997 feet high. It is also a still active volcano
Indigenous tribes from all over Northern Ecuador go to Cayamber to celebrate the March equinox and the summer solstice in July. The villagers dress in traditional clothing, many wearing masks go to the middle of town dancing and singing. Then from the town the people go on to the pyramids and celebrate some more with food and entertainment.
- Pros:Queso de hoja and bizcochos!!!
My cousin asked me if I wanted to see the biggest oven to make bizcochos here in Cayambe. I said sure lets check it out.... more travel advice
“QUESO DE HOJA” is a special cheese, which is originated from Cayambe. It is the ideal complement for the bizcochos.... more travel advice
