Cotacachi is not a very big city, but when walking it seems huge. There are bakeries every we love visiting: we get all of our bread from there; My personal favorite is pan de leche or bread of milk. It has a hard crust, but in the inside it is very fluffy almost like a cake.
In Cotacachi, there are two town squares and two parks that I know of. The smaller of the two town squares has a lot of street vendors on it, and the bigger one is just full of benches and has a few statues. The parks are very big. We went to one yesterday and There were two basketball courts a lot of slides and a work out area. The park is a little smaller with basketball court mixed in to be a soccer field as well. There are two slides and some other stuff.
