Cotacachi Shopping

Cotacachi shopping is great… especially for leather… but now it is even better.


Quichua is the language of Ecuador’s indigenous population and the word for collection is “Wayka”.

Cotacachi is a Wayka or collection of shops just as the staff at our hotel Inn Land of the Sun (formerly Meson de las Flores) is run by a wonderful collection of Ecuadorians.

Here we are, with the hotel staff, except…


our night watchman… Mauricio Bonilla because…


Mauricio has moved up!

We purchased the hotel Meson de las Flores several years ago… worked with the staff to rejuvenate it and donated the business and the building to our Land of the Sun Foundation to help stimulate the Cotacachi economy.  Part of the foundation’s program provides educational scholarships and Mauricio was one of the first to start and complete university under the foundation grants.

So we are really pleased that he has now opened his own shop perfectly named “Wayka”… a collection.

Congratulations Mauricio for making Cotacachi shopping better!

Mauricio has made Cotacachi shopping better by adding many products we have developed in our Ecuador export tour… so Wayka offers products beyond the norm and for his grand opening Mauricio sent us this map.


We invite you to visit Cotacachi. We hope you’ll enjoy the hospitality at Inn Land of the Sun. While there, enjoy Cotacachi shopping and be sure to visit Mauricio and Wayka.

Jean Marie has added some new tours and expanded the length of others, so see the new schedule below.

Jean Marie Butterlin, was born in France and after graduating in 1977 from the engineering college ICAM in Lille (France) moved to United States where he developed a homeopathic and dietary supplement business in Houston TX, with an aim at exporting the US made products  into Europe, with emphasis towards Belgium and France.

After living part time on both sides of the Atlantic he moved back  in 2002 to Europe where he has a prosperous business in the natural health field i.e. phytotherapy, mineral supplements, specialty cosmetics, as well as Quantum medical technology, internet publishing for the anti-aging market.

This quest for anti-aging remedies, products and techniques has lead him to discover Ecuador with its valleys of longevity, where he is researching and developing new approaches to live longer and better and bringing the new products and techniques to more and more people in the United States and Europe.

Jean Marie moved with his family to Cotacachi last year.

International club members will still attend all 2010 tours free.
