City Travel Guide – Cuenca, Ecuador; Trans Americas Journey
Cuenca, Ecuador City Travel Guide including what to do, what to eat, and where to sleep in this historic UNESCO World Heritage site city.
Cuenca, Ecuador is an expat mecca which means you’re going to hear more English (and French and German) and see more North American and European faces here than anywhere else in Ecuador except maybe the Galapagos Islands. But Cuenca is also full of history, culture, hotels, and good food (you can thank the expats for that last one), as you’ll see in this travel guide to Santa Ana de los Cuatro Ríos de Cuenca.
Cuenca was first inhabited by nomadic cave men and more securely established in 500 AD.
