Cuenca, where we call home, is a city in the Andes but still has a small town feel in how friendly the locals are. You see friends and even strangers taking the time to greet each other and talk. They take long lunches to go home and eat with their family. We have a large farming population and year round growing climate so we have an abundance of fresh foods here at affordable prices. Cuenca is becoming more international every year. Emigrants from the United States alone are estimated at over 4,000 in Cuenca alone, close to 10,000 in the country.

Its central plaza, Parque Calderón, is home to the blue-domed Catedral Nueva and the 16th-century Catedral Vieja, now a religious museum. The Museo y Parque Arqueológico Pumapungo displays ruins and artifacts from the Incan city of Tomebamba.
