TravelPod Member ReviewsA Casa Naranja Cuenca
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.

At the bus station in Trujillo I met a guy who was working in WI and visiting friends here, who then helped me through the bus stations in Tumbes. It was intimidating how the taxi drivers were pointing at me before I even got ...
... got a chance to decide the days activities, when it was her birthday and we set out for “Cuenca canopy” a zip line company another hour outside Cuenca. We got strapped to harnesses and swung between the tree tops really high over the ground. The girls loved it and Maria endured it. We all have our separate taste and we have to compromise.
Next day it was New Year. We made another wonderful dinner and then went out to see how
the ecuadorians celebrate. This ...
