5 Miles
Nearest Airport

Car: Not Necessary

Directions via Taxi / Car - (We can arrange airport pick up with an English speaking driver, they charge $20 for this service)

Tell the taxi driver you want to go to "El Cebollar". This is the town (pueblo) that is closest to us, most drivers will know it, if they look uncertain, tell them it's just past the junction of the streets (calles) Aberlado J. Andrade Y Del Chofer.

As you're coming up the hill, you'll see a building on the left that says "Centro de cultural, El Cebollar". 1.5 blocks past this on the right, you'll see a "Pollo Express". Take a right turn immediately after the Pollo Express, the street name is Hernan Coelo Garcia but it's poorly marked. On that corner there's a little store with a "Claro sign on it, and on the other side of that same corner, there's a show repair store. But most importantly, just remember it's the first right after Pollo express.

Go straight, 1 block down, tell the driver to go slow (despacio), the rd turns into a dirt rd, and you're going to go steep downhill all the way to the bottom.

At the bottom turn right, you'll go past a building that says "Azateepa". At the end turn left. If you look ahead and up hill, you'll see our house at this point, it's called "La Casa Blanca".

Many people close to our house will know La Casa Blanca, so ask passers by if need be. If you can't find us, have the driver drop you off at the Pollo Express on Aberlado J. Andrade and I'll come and meet you!

Why Cuenca, Ecuador:
We are a family run, dog friendly B&B that provide superb comfortable accommodations in a beautiful villa, in a gorgeous tranquil setting with views of Cuenca and only 10 minutes to El Centro.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We are permaculture / Aquaponics enthusiasts - our last business in the U.S.A was aquaponicsurbanfarm. We are about to start creating another Aquaponics farm (June 2014) as well as nurturing chickens and possibly goats to provide us and our guests with the best possible organic food, and to share our love of Aquaponic systems and urban farming.
