Getting to and away from Ibarra

Ibarra's Terminal Terrestre is located on Avenida Espejo and Avenida Teodoro Goméz de la Torre (a $1 taxi ride or 20 minute walk from the center of town). Inside, you'll find the usual tiendas selling snacks and drinks, as well as a food court. There is a $0.05 tax for using the terminal. Unless specified, buses generally run between 6 a.m. to 6/7 p.m. For shorter bus rides (e.g. to Quito, Otavalo, Cotacahi, etc.), you don't need to buy your ticket inside the terminal; instead you can simply pay on the bus.

To Cotacachi (20 min, $0.30): leave every 15 minutes

To El Angel (1.5 hr, $1.50): leave every two hours between 6 a.m.-5.30 p.m.

To Guayaquil (11 hr, $13): leave every hour

To Otavalo (40 min, $0.45): leave every 15 minutes

To Quito (2.5 hr, $2.50, 2.5 hr): leave every 15 minutes.

To San Lorenzo (4 hr, $4): leave every two hours between 4 a.m. and 6 p.m.

To Tulcan (2.5 hr, $2.50): leave every hour

If you're planning on going to La Esperanza (the village at the base of the Imbabura volcano), note that buses don't leave from the terminal. Instead, head to Parque Germán Grijalva, on Calle Sánchez Cifuentes (from Oviedo, walk directly down Sánchez for eight blocks). Buses leave every 20 to 30 minutes (25 min, $0.25).
