Cuenca

Cuenca is the third biggest city in Ecuador but somehow manage to keep the feeling of a small town. Maybe that is one of the reasons why we loved Cuenca. We spent the days strolling around the parks, visiting some of the many churches/cathedrals. Funny fact, in Cuenca there are so many churches, you can visit a different one every sunday of the year!

From Cuenca we’ve also visited Ingapirca by public transport. A perfect day trip.

Ingapirca

Translated Inca Wall, is seen as the most important Inca legacy in Ecuador. Built on a part of the Inca Trail running from Cusco all the way up to Quito. From Cuenca we booked a round trip bus ticket which dropped us off directly at the entrance of the site. This gave us plenty of time to visit the ruins, have a nice almuerzo (lunch) at a local restaurant before we would have been picked up again early afternoon for the return journey to Cuenca.

Being our final stop in Ecuador we spent some hours in a great little coffee shop (with the best chocolate cake ever!) to do some research about Peru while enjoying a nice peruvian branded coffee.

Next stop: Mancora (Peru)
