Cotacachi is a canton of Imbabura province of Ecuador. The name Cotacachi has many meanings. In "Cara" it means "lake with women breast", in Quichua it means powder salt. The ecosystems of the area and the native flora and fauna makes this canton one of the ecologically richest zones in South America. The area is good for bird watching, camping and fly fishing. The weather on the area ranges from 9 to 25 degrees celsius and is cooler in the evenings. In the last decade Cotacachi has implemented a new system of local development by creating a city council.
