Cuenca, Azuay Province
This 1200 sqft colonial apartment will keep you super comfortable during your stay in Cuenca. Enjoy the comforts of a home for what you’d pay for an average hotel (where all you get is a room with a bed and bathroom)!

Following the description of this apartment (at the bottom) is a 'checklist' of things you might consider when examining other properties. Be sure to look it over so you get the RIGHT FIT FOR YOU!!!

Now, about this apartment.....

Situated in an old colonial building located smack dab in the middle of El Centro. Everything you want is just steps outside your door.

- Close to the blue-domed Cathedral, flower market, and Parque Calderon, the center of the Universe when it comes to Cuenca’s activities, festivals, tourism office, tour bus, etc.

- EZ walk to a large Mercado featuring local grown fruits and vegetables...
