Can anyone tell us your experience using “Tiendamia”?

This is a service using eBay, Amazon, Walmart and Macy’s to buy online from here and have whatever you buy delivered to your residence here in Ecuador. I’m wondering if some expats can relate their experience using Tiendamia, such as time you had to wait for a delivery, etc.

Thank you,

Horse Trekking Ecuador, rides this weekend

Horse Trekking Ecuador invites you to travel above and outside the city of Cuenca on horseback to some of most outstanding views of all the surrounding area. With only a 15 minute ride from the city by transport, you will meet your mount. Our facilities have waiting rooms if weather is bad, bathrooms (always a necessity) and a safe place to leave your personal belongings.

We offer many opportunities for walk, trot, and gallop so you can experience horse trekking through the valleys and mountains with the wind in your face and the feelings of abandonment.

Our horses are of excellent conditioning and breeding for this type of work. They are sure footed and are dependable whether climbing the mountain or traversing the valleys.

Cerro de las Monjas can be seen from Don Bosco and is way above the prison. The views looking down are unforgettable. If you have ridden with us before or are an intermediate rider, you will be comfortable with this ride. We also offer the beautiful tourist destination of Boqueron.

$50 pp covers transportation, horse, guide, sandwiches, and canelazo.

Saturday, Oct 2, 9:30 AM pickup to 2 PM drop off, $50, Parque Iberia pickup/drop off, Cuenca. Sunday ride a possibility also if enough bookings. Let us know your preference.

Who is Carlos Ramirez and why should you insure with him?

Carlos Ramirez, native of Loja, arrived for the first time to Cuenca at 18-years old with the desire to be one of the best mechanical engineers of the UPS University in which he began his university life in this environment began to develop as a shrewd student and with an exceptional ability to solve mathematical problems, but soon that promising career would lose the initial brightness for Carlos, who decided to leave the race in his last cycle to pursue his true passion. In this dream began in a recognized insurance company in the country as a claims inspector but he would be in this position for a short time, because when he discovered his passion it was easy to climb quickly and become a great element of this institution. His desire to serve increased and he focused on the expat insurance market, which was a community that did not have the service they expected in Ecuador. His first limitations with the language were not a problem since his desire to learn was bigger. He decided to quit his job, finish his career and after a short period he founded his first office in the heart of the city of Cuenca; a modest office with only one worker who opened and closed a sliding door as many times as necessary per day. He visited the main expat meeting centers in Cuenca and was forging his own path. In less than a year he was able to change office and hire his first employee. In six months he managed to hire a second employee and from then on, the story tells itself. Today Bluebox Asesores is positioned in the fourth place of the best brokers at regional level, has 7 employees and two offices, one in Cuenca and another in Manta, a city that is seen as a future retirement paradise for foreigners and nationals.

But why insure with Carlos Ramirez? Insuring with Carlos guarantees you a first class service, in which you will have personalized attention for each of your requirements. We are the only broker in Cuenca that has translations of your coverage and staff that can help you in your language without any inconvenience. In addition Carlos has exclusive products for the expat community in Ecuador. We are pioneers in generating contracts that adapt to your needs and your budget.

If you are already insured, but do not feel that you have not obtained the expected results of your policy do not hesitate to contact us, our advice is free of charge.

Recommendation for Rob Lumpkin, reflexology, massage therapy

Research shows reflexology is a potent therapy for a wide range of health conditions. The theory behind reflexology is that these areas correspond to organs and systems of the body. Proponents believe that pressure applied to these areas affects the organs and benefits the person’s health.

Rob Lumpkin is a well-trained reflexologist who relieved my stress in 4 one-hour sessions. The hour therapy is very relaxing and the hour ends with a sense of well being. I highly recommend you consider his services.

Recommendation for MV Leather, boot makers

I have purchased many boots from MV Leather over the years and cannot recommend them enough! They have copied my favorite boots from the States, provided me with awesome boots for moto riding, allowed me to select special leathers and heel preferences, toe styles. Their craftsmanship is superb, selection diverse, and I testify to the utmost comfort and long lasting and elegant styles. Their prices are incredibly reasonable for such high-quality handmade footwear also.

This last year has been especially difficult for them and I sure do not want to see this valuable place go out of business so, please give them a look if you are in need.

Recommendation for Cuenca Car Share, car rental

If you’re planning a trip, consider Cuenca Car Share as a transportation option. While nobody needs a car to get around Cuenca, the same cannot be said of other parts of Ecuador and having a car can make a real difference. Recently rented one of Emilio’s cars to go to the beach for a week. Flawless experience. I told Emilio that we wanted to leave early in the morning. No problem… He brought the car to us the evening before the start of the rental period. With the discount he offers for multi-day rentals, along with the unlimited mileage allowance his pricing is as good or better than the car rental companies. And, no BS in getting and returning the car. Will be using Cuenca Car Share again and would recommend them unconditionally.

Recommendation for Paola, office manager, Blue Box Insurance

Today I received a great message from Carlos Ramirez, the owner of the Bluebox Insurance Company, on the successful authorization of the insurance company to reimburse the cost of my husband’s treatment at the hospital. This news is especially gratifying since the decision of the insurance company was negative. The whole process from the moment of filing the position to approval took less than a month.

Special thanks to Paola, the office manager of blue box insurance. Her attention to details, personal attitude, quick responses to inquiries show her professionalism and desire to recommend them from the bottom of the heart.

Recommendation for Mustafa Aladawi, computer – Firestick / IT-tech master

Mustafa came to my house and installed my new 4K Firestick on television and spent well over 30 minutes demonstrating how best to use the system. He was extremely professional, articulate and personal. Mustafa arrived early and was patient and thorough. He also looked at my Canon printer as it was not functioning and immediately resolved the issue promptly and at a very reasonable fee. I have used the services of Mustafa before with the same result.

For prompt attention to any computer issue I highly recommend Mustafa and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone in need of these services.

Recommendation for Pei’s Potstickers, Chinese food

Our family ordered from Pei, as recommended by a friend. Pei speaks English. The food came by moto, was homemade, hot and packaged well. The rice was authentic sticky rice and the flavors were perfect for each meal. I ordered 2 hours before we needed our meal, because Pei makes it fresh and will need to thaw her meat per order. That’s one of the reasons it’s so good. Just keep in mind: “All good things come to those who wait.” Thank you, Pei!

Recommendation for Abel Malave hair colors, women beauty salon

My experience comes from the husband’s point of view and I believe all men know a happy wife equals a happy life. This is a truly high-end women beauty salon like the ones back home. They actually have certified master stylists and colorists and their customer service is top notch; not only for their clients but also for their clients’ husbands waiting in the reception. I had to inquire about this place and they have only been open for a few weeks and are in the process of adding a few more things like TVs and surround sound and they plan their official launch by the end of October, but they are definitely busy as is. To all men who care about the women in their lives; this is a place for both of you.
