How to get to Pucará
Pucará is about 2 hours from Otavalo by bus, depending on road conditions and weather. Otavalo is about 2 hours north of Quito by bus.
There are two bus companies that go to Pucará from the main bus terminal in Otavalo (see departure schedules below). The trip is beautiful as you ascend the western Cordillera of the Andes and cross the continental divide at 4000 meters, before descending almost 2000 meters. The road is very steep and windy. If you are prone to car sickness you may want to take motion sickness medication before your departure. Make sure you ask the bus attendant to “pare en Pucará” (“stop in Pucará”). We are located in the Centro Cultural Pucará on the left hand side of the church. It is a good idea to buy your ticket the day before if possible to reserve your seat so you don’t get stuck having to stand (and missing the beautiful views).
Compania Otavalo departs every day at: 7:30 am, 9:00 am on Sundays, 10:00 am, 14:00 pm. (Tickets are $1.70)
Compania 6 de Julio departs every day at: 12:00 pm, 15:00 pm (Tickets are $1.65)
