The quaint town of Cuenca is always a favorite of the travelers lucky enough to visit. While it is Ecuador's third-largest city behind Guayaquil and Quito, Cuenca's charm comes from its relaxed highland lifestyle, agreeable climate, and friendly people. Here, four babbling mountain rivers converge in a city marked by colonial architecture reminiscent of an Ecuadorian yesteryear. The cathedrals downtown are definitely worth visiting, and the main plaza is a delightful place to spend the evening. Cuenca's location in the mountains gives it a brisk, sun-kissed climate great for strolling around the surprisingly quiet city. It also has the best access of any city to Cajas National Park & the Ingapirca archaeological site, considered Ecuador's best Inca ruins. Choose from multisport tours to cultural immersions & much more.
