No English but next door happy to translate, basic but large rooms, we had an early trip but the proprietor was happy to provide a 6am breakfast. Clean and central location. Good value for the price.

... It was
exactly like looking outside a plane window. We then drove through the highest
points which were in the Cajas National Park, a very scenic location of small

... for a few hours. I wandered through the old market ogling the handicrafts on display. The sun, which had stubbornly refused to make an appearance this morning, broke through the clouds and warmed the city. I can understand why westerners might want to retire here. Life is relaxed, all the mod cons are available, quality health care is universal, over-65’s receive a 50% discount on all services including ...
... jam. As you can imagine with the patient of the South American's there was enough beeping of horns to send you deaf and some very frustrated people who were trying to push themselves through nearly causing a huge pile up. It was all worth it though as the view was really nice and we even got a free drink at the top which was a local home brew served hot. Cuenca was very beautiful colonial town with a new twist to it. There were many clothing, electrical and souvenir ...
