ATM limits and fees?

Hello all. Now that it appears that Banco del Austro will be permanently limiting their per transaction withdrawal to $100, I am looking for information on which bank’s ATMs allow the highest per transaction withdrawals and also what the fees are.

My US bank does not reimburse any ATM fees that might be charged here and they also charge me a $3 fee for every ATM withdrawal beyond 3 per month, so you can see how using an ATM that will only dispense $100 at a time is not feasible.

Any info about withdrawal limits and fees at various ATMs would be welcome. Thanks for your help.

Passport photos in Cuenca

Good morning. My Canadian passport expires in a couple of weeks, and I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get the photos taken here in Cuenca. Also, if you’ve gone through the process since covid, and you would like to share any info, please let me know. Do’s and dont’s appreciated.

Any Irishmen here?

Hoping to obtain some advice about how to get a source for renting a reasonable cottage in Wexford or Carlow Counties.

I have my Irish citizenship and passport, so the only impediment is the Covid immunization which hopefully will be completed well before my anticipated departure in 2022.

Tried to place an ad in, but was blocked due to our location. ie: Ecuador. After which, I attempted to do the same with “donedeal,” and failed again. Donedeal was recommended for reaching the rural areas, which is where I would like to spend my time.

The goal is to locate an owner in, “The Boonies,” in, or outside, a village or town, which would not attract rich holiday vacationers, or commuters to a large city.

Rural Cottages for a long-term lease, should cost considerably less than those located in large cities or towns in these counties.

I would like to locate the Irish equivalent of, what is known as a facilitator here, or better still, the owner of a cottage.

Estate Agents are interested in selling property and not renting. An individual, “Letting Agent, ” in each County would be extremely helpful. I am open to pay the fees for the agent or the individual who locates and secures the lease arrangement for me.

If anyone can point me in the right direction I would be most appreciative.

Thank you for your consideration.

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day.

Includes tasting.

Then, Doña Blanquita welcomes us to her organic garden where we find vegetables, fruits, legumes, aromatic plants, or medicinal herbs among other varieties, where we will harvest organic products.

Next stop a place with height “the Mirador de la Cabaña” located at 3,000 m.a.s.l. ideal for photography, relaxation, and distraction of our mind watching a beautiful landscape of mountain and city.

Lunchtime, delicious food made with products from the garden, in a homely place and friendly people. Then we will practice the traditional game “el topeteo del sambo”, an ancestral game that was practiced for fun in some rural communities. Sambo is a vegetable grown in the gardens.

Last but not less, we will visit a private orchid garden, where its owner tells us how she dedicated herself to the planting of beautiful orchids while we tour her garden.

About Jan: Considered by many to be a “World-Class” massage therapist, Jan Wallace has been performing massage therapy since her original licensing by the Oregon State Board of Health in 1983. She has studied almost every massage technique out there, and over the course of 30 years, blended the best-of-the best into her own massage style that’s an incredibly relaxing, therapeutic, invigorating, and an almost “spiritual” experience.

New client’s first visit is always $10 off this price, therefore $30
Schedule at:


“I highly recommend you experiencing a massage with Jan Wallace, an excellent masseuse. I cannot give her enough accolades. Being the physically active woman that I am, I have had many massages in my lifetime and she easily ranks in the top 1%. No kidding. Give her a try. You’ll be so happy you did.” Eve Donald, Cuenca

“Jan gave me a fantastic massage. Her apartment is easy to find and the massage room is very spa-like. She’s easy to communicate with and makes sure you’re comfortable at all times. I highly recommend her.” Sandy Brown, Cuenca

“I had a great massage experience with Jan. She listens to your needs and pressure preference. The atmosphere is quiet, comfortable and relaxing. She is conveniently located. I would highly recommend a massage from Jan.” Adrien Winger, Cuenca

“I had overstressed a muscle in my back last week and was in a lot of pain. Jan lives in the same building as I do so I called her and she was able to fit me into her schedule. After 90 minutes with Jan, the pain was gone! I was hoping simply for the pain to lessen, but it was totally gone. Needless to say, I think she is great and highly recommend her!” Linda Chase, Cuenca

“I had three or four massages with Jan while I was in Cuenca a few months ago, just after she opened. I would second the comment above about having had many massages in my lifetime and the fact that Jan is in the top 1%. I’m a retired medial professional and can’t wait for my next visit with Jan.

Do you like coffee with a high aroma and flavor?

This post is for you.

Arabica coffee is considered a much more select and refined grain than the rest. True coffee lovers always tend to choose this variety, rather than a more earthy and robust bean.

I am Andrés Guillermo, the only distributor in Cuenca and Azuay of 100% Arabian coffee, grown and harvested at 1,300 meters above sea level, in the province of Zaruma. I have roasted coffee in two presentations: ground and beans, 450-gram bags so that you can make your breakfast or afternoon coffee a delicious experience in your mouth.

Ecuador registers 1,555 covid-19 and accumulates 302,221 positives

Ecuador registered 1,555 cases of covid-19 in one day, bringing its number of infections to 302,221 accumulated positives during the pandemic, which began in the country on February 29 of last year, reported this Sunday the Ministry of Public Health in your daily report.

The death toll confirmed by the disease rose to 11,446, which represents 21 more than on Saturday, to which are added 4,790 “probable deaths” with the disease, for a total of 16,236 deaths.

The province of Pichincha, whose capital is Quito, is the most affected in the country by contagion with 104,374 cases, 248 more than on Saturday; followed by the coastal area of ​​Guayas (whose capital is Guayaquil) with 38,570 positives, 284 more than the day before.

Then the provinces of Manabí (with 22,794 cases), Azuay (18,122), El Oro (13,825), Loja (11,058), Tungurahua (10,537), Imbabura (9,093), Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas (8,489), Cotopaxi (8,485) appear. ), Los Ríos (8,334) and Esmeraldas (6,481), among the most affected.

The problem is that Ecuadorians do not make good use of the mask or use non-approved masks. They care more about what a good mask costs than their own health. According to the World Health Organization, KN95 filter masks are still the most suitable to prevent the spread of the deadly virus.

I am Andrés Guillermo, distributor in Cuenca and Azuay of KN95 masks with filter, made in the USA. These masks are not the ones sold in Shopping Centers, they are masks with sanitary registration, laminated and with high protection. Its use is comfortable, it avoids dizziness, headaches, fogging of lenses or glasses. They are lightweight and are placed behind the ears, but above all 100% safe and reliable. I sell them by unit or box of 20 masks. Contact me at 0996472877, WhatsApp or call me.

A unique experience among desert, local community, and mountains

Two intense days of adventure, designed for those who want to get out of the city routine and create new memories.

In the Central Andes, Palmira the unique and attractive desert with an impressive landscape of sandy areas and pine forest. An indisputable contact with nature. And, if you could not visit La Nariz del Diablo by train, do not be sad, now, we will do it walking paths traveled by former visitors, crossing part of the railroad, surrounded by mountains, immersed in the impressive Andean landscape.

Communities through which it seems that other cultures of conquest have not passed, that time has not passed. Ancestral communities that still preserve their dialect, cultural traits and folkloric manifestations.

Let us surprise you with new paths and take you to a new experience.

Recommendation for Animalia Veterinary Clinic, pet veterinary

I only have praise for Dr. Andrea Martinez and Dr. Andrea Rodriguez of Animalia Veterinary Clinic. Both have worked at Arca for many years. Caring for dogs and cats with all type of injuries; many times pro bono. These two young doctors care for the pets. I have 8 dogs. They have treated all of them with great results. The last one is a fisty little Poodle mix street bitch, she picked a fight with our larger husky. The outcome was not pretty. They sewed her up and after two operations she is well on her way to recovery. I can’t be more thankful. Look them up on FB Animalia Cuenca

Recommendation for Roberto Benavides pharmacist, Eloy Alfaro, pharmacy

I highly recommend Roberto Benavides and his pharmacy, Eloy Alfaro, at the corner of Las Americas and Ordonez Lasso. Roberto has found things I cannot get elsewhere in Cuenca and when he cannot get the exact thing, has found me equivalents for whatever ails me.

His staff is helpful and they will deliver. There may be less expensive pharmacies, but I have yet to find one as helpful and responsive and caring as Roberto and his staff.

If you’re having problems (or not) finding medications and medical accessories you need, do give Roberto a call. He speaks excellent English (as does his four-year-old daughter) and has been so helpful, it has saved us hassle, time, money and frustrations.

You can reach Roberto at 099 563 2090, Eloy Alfaro Farmacia, Av. Ordonez Lasso y Alamos (next to the gas station on Las Americas)
