Cuenca Tours

Cuenca is the capital of the Azuay Province in southern Ecuador. Besides being a beautiful city with colonial architecture, Cuenca has an active ex-pat community and is a major seller of Panama hats. Cuenca is also known for its large number of well-preserved historical sights. When Ecuador achieved independence, Cuenca became the capital of one of three provinces that made up the nascent republic. On a tour of Cuenca, stroll along its cobblestone streets, visit its historical churches buildings and colonial-era mansions. Nearby Cuenca is the El Cajas National Park and the Ingapirca ruins. We recommending including these sites on any Cuenca tour. In the Cajas National Park, you can go hiking and birdwatching, or mountain biking. At the Ingapirca ruins, you can view the largest site of Inca ruins in Ecuador. While visiting Cuenca, customize your Ecuador tour to include a stop in the Galapagos Islands or a visit to the one-of-a-kind Cloud Forest.
