Saraguro: visit to indigenous village
About a two-hour drive from Cuenca is the region of the Saraguros, a proud indigenous community of the Andes, recognizable by its black and white patterned hats. On Sunday we visit the very nice market of Saraguro and then we head into the mountains towards the Gera community. Here we get an explanation of the daily life of the farmers and residents. We cook together with a family and make a local dish with products from the area that we may have harvested ourselves. After this delicious meal we return to Cuenca.
To bring: sun and rain protection, camera, water and comfortable shoes.
