For four years Mario Tuntaquimba and his wife Rosa Elena Terán have welcomed tourists from all over the world. His interest is to show the Otavalos customs and rituals in Inka Tambo, the workshop of his grandparents.
The couple is dedicated to community tourism because they saw the need to teach the traditions of their people. The residence located in Peguche, Otavalo, offers a series of activities that are adapted to the needs of tourists.
They have an orchard and breed livestock. “As when my grandparents lived,” says Tuntaquimba, who seeks to honor his ancestors by maintaining their daily activities. Visitors can work on corn, cuckolds, beans, beans and potatoes crops. Tuntaquimba points out that these fruits of the earth are more desirable because they are grown with organic fertilizers.
The work of Inka Tambo has become a space to promote and maintain the culture of the Otavalos. (I)
