feature_img_03By far Ecuador’s most beautiful and well preserved colonial town, Cuenca is a great place to base yourself for a while. There are loads of nice places to explore in the area and the town itself, despite being one of the countries largest, has a very relaxed and small town feel. From sunny plazas to bustling markets and leafy parks on the edge of the river Tomebamba, Cuenca has certainly retained some of that Colonial style! The city also has fantastic nightlife with restaurants, bars and salsa clubs open until the early hours where locals and travellers happily share the same haunts.
