Packed with impressive colonial architecture and a historic town center, Cuenca stands as perhaps the most charming city in the nation.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Eduardo Vega Galeria Taller and Plaza Civica. Escape the urban bustle at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Horseback Riding Tours. Venture out of the city with trips to El Chorro Waterfall (in Giron), Ingapirca Ruins (in Ingapirca) and Parque Chordeleg (in Chordeleg). There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at El Carmen de la Asuncion Church, examine the collection at El Museo de Las Conceptas, view the masterpieces at Artes de la Tierra Galeria, and explore the wealth of natural beauty at El Cajas National Park.
