Swimming/aquatic centers in Cuenca

I’m considering a trip to Cuenca in late July or August and interested in current indoor lap swimming opportunities. Are swimming venues such as Piscina Olimpica currently open? I would appreciate any current recommendations on indoor pools for lap swimming in Cuenca. Thanks,


A couple more questions…

I am going to be in Cuenca in late September, early October, and would like to consult with a surgeon who can fix a ventral hernia, if possible, without mesh. It was repaired before with mesh that had to be removed, and I don’t want to do that again. I’ve learned that a ventral (Belly) hernia is way more common than I thought, so I was wondering if anybody had the procedure with good results, or know a doctor I might contact to find out about this surgery. I just need to consult. I’m not trying to squeeze in an operation. I’ve had it for five years, just makes it harder to buy shirts.

Also, I take Ibersartan and Amlodipine. Does anyone know if those are available, or maybe a website I can check? This has probably been asked a dozen times or more, so I beg your forgiveness.

When I was in Mexico, I would take my insulin pen with me to the druggist, and he would just sell me more; no script required. If I need insulin in Ecuador, will they accept script from a US doctor? Will I need to consult a doctor there to get a script, or will I need one at all? I probably won’t pack enough for my 10 weeks.


Are you an expat living alone?

If you live alone, suffer a fall and are unable to get to the door, a trusted friend needs to have a key to gain access in case of an emergency. Otherwise, 911 or concerned friends will need to break down the door. We expats need to connect with each other. As a retired registered nurse, I am continuing to learn the best ways to navigate Cuenca’s medical system and prepare for medical emergencies. As expats we need to think ahead and plan for the unexpected. Abrazos.

Paws With Hope needs help!

Paws with Hope is an animal rescue run by one person, Jay Dee, who is in desperate need of help to look after the dogs and cats in her care. The cost of housing, vetting and feeding the rescue animals is extremely high. She has not been making ends meet for a while and as of now she is completely out of funding with little necessities left. These dogs and cats were rescued to temporarily help them and find them homes.

Please donate if you can, or drop off a bag of dog or cat food, cat litter, used blankets and towels.

Hogar Esperanza will gladly receive the donations at the expat service center so next time you are shopping, please pick up a little extra pet food and drop it off.

Thank you so much.

Great jazz and great food for Father’s Day

Father’s Day at the Jazz Society Café
Treat your Dad to an afternoon of great jazz and great food
Featuring the Jim Gala Jazz Quintet with singer Mariangel

Reviews: “Cuenca is blessed to have such an artist as Jim Gala. I’ve played with some of the greats on both sides of the Atlantic, yet I’ve never heard such a transformative, unique jazz pianist as Jim Gala. Simply put, he’s a true musical genius.” —Bill Scott, Broadway composer, singer, and lyricist.

“Jim Gala is one of my musical idols. He’s a real soul man. No one plays like him. His musical philosophy, sensibility, and taste are impeccable. He changed my life with his music. I actually quote him often and wrote about him in my book.” —J. Cain, Jazz Historian, jazz pianist

Sunday, June 20th. Lunch service 12:30 PM. Music 3 to 6 PM, Los Cedros y Los Claveles a block north of Ordonez Lasso
