Winner of Outside Magazine's 2014 Travel Awards for 'Best Adventure Hub,' Cuenca has something for everyone, whether heading to the Cajas National Park or staying in the colonial center of town. Cuenca has numerous museums, restaurants, markets, and architectural delights. Bus tours depart from the main square, and the biggest challenge is deciding what to do.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: I live in the U.S., but enjoy visiting South America. Will I retire to Cuenca one day? Perhaps.
Why the Owner Chose Cuenca: This building was featured in the New York Times (http://www.nytimes.com/2012/06/08/greathomesanddestinations/08iht-reecuador08.html?_r=0) as an example of colonial buildings in Cuenca being renovated on the inside while retaining the original facade. After staying in the building on my first trip to Cuenca, I was lucky enough to find out that one of the apartments was available.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: Great central location, while being just far enough from the main square to be a bit more quiet. The building is secure and has friendly occupants.
