Go over the indigenous fair

El Coca is the main commercial port of the Orellana province, many of the amazonian communities go to this city to sell a great variety of typical products from the area. Here you can find many uncommon items, such as; drago blood, or the famous huito, seed from where a strong black die is taken, it is used by indigenous to die their hair or draw characteristic symbols on their faces. Many of the communities that inhabit in the Ecuadorian Amazon live from the farming, fishing and cattle raising, therefore this place is very visited by those who want to find fresh products, such as manioc, catfish, chonta worms, among others. We recommend you to visit the fair on weekends, go there early in the morning and witness how some products exchange take place, through barter (a practice where products are trade for others)
