Visiing Cuenca July 2015
I had a great trip to Cuenca!I enjoyed the parks and churches as well as the flower market just off the main plaza. I have friends that I stayed with that made it more enjoyable.
Im a big fan of hot springs and took several visits just outside of town to Banos where there are many hot spring resorts. The place I visited was clean and the local people were very pleasant and welcoming to foreigners.I would highly recommend Cuenca while visiting Ecuador. - Dexter Aug 14, 2015
Quito to Cuenca
Easy trip less than an hour. But make sure to book seat assignment early so you don't get stuck in the middle seat. I'd not and got stuck between lady with very young baby (3 mo.s)
and the aile seat was occupied by a lady with her own cabbage patch doll which she wouldn't let go off! No extra seats available, not even in business or 1st. class. The plane was booked soil. I was an enjoyable flight inspite of the discomfort. Flight and ground crews were all excellent. I'm staying at the "Hotel Vieja Mansion" and it is only 2 blocks from the main square here in Cuenca, great location. Excellent hospitality,very friendly, helpful, willing to do anything you ask. Put a heater in my room and brought in a coffee pot for y personal use. I can't ask for better service. And I have to add clean and inexpnsive. - Robert Jul 29, 2015
