Step back in time to this lovely colonial city which is also nicknamed the 'White City' due to its numerous white washed houses, with red roofs. Originally founded in the early 1600's, the city's main draw is its rich marketplace, cathedrals, plazas, museums and natural countryside. Come, and join the throngs of tourists who visit this city every year with cheap tickets to Ibarra.
If you're looking to have a traditional market experience in Ibarra, just know that the city's main market day is on Saturday. You can always go on another day, but this is the main time to visit. Merchants set up shop and sell beautiful hand woven cotton and alpaca wool fabrics, rope, and also sell hats (with straw Panama hats being the main style here.) If you're a fan of sweet treats then try some alcohol made with Ibarra sugar cane, or helados de paila ice cream made with sugar cane.
