Traveling within Ecuador

Hi, does anyone know is it difficult to get to Vilcabamba from Cuenca? What would be the best option to do this, and how long is the journey?

Thanks so much,


My young mini-schnauzer was robbed from my house

Lost dog with white eyebrows and beard. Her fur coat is cut close and is a diver/grey. She has her tail cropped. Her ears were never cropped.

Entering Ecuador

Several of us just returned to Ecuador from the USA and other places. When your destination is Ecuador you are required to present proof of vaccination as well as a negative PCR test. We arrived in Guayaquil Sunday morning at 1. Many people were denied boarding due to no proof of vaccine or a negative PCR test within 24 hours of boarding plane. One family had to do a PCR test in Bogata airport, missed their flight and paid $800 to fly on our flight.

We had to present proof of vaccine and PCR negative results 3 different times on the way back to Ecuador. Including upon arrival in Guayaquil airport as well as a tracing document.

No matter your stand to vax or not, you will be stuck inside Ecuador without proof of vaccination and negative PCR.

We have raised $5,452 towards our $10K goal

Help make a joyful Christmas at Mujeres Con Exito

Dear Friends of Mujeres con Ėxito,

As the holidays rapidly approach, we continue to work to meet the needs of the women and children we serve at Cuenca’s only women’s domestic violence safe haven.

Our mothers tell us they need shoes and clothes for their children, so we will add those to the packages with the children’s presents. That adds up to $50 for each child. Considering we have 200 children (including babies and toddlers) that is a whopping $10,000 but we have raised $3000. We will be using sales from these events to fund Christmas:

Carols, Cupcakes and Coffee Event on December 7, from 3 to 5 PM. This event has been cancelled.


Real Stories from the Hogar – When collaboration means something

If you were at our recent event, you heard the story of Jhon, Tranisto’s grandson. Several years ago, he watched as his mother fell down a flight of stairs and died. He suffered severe trauma as a result, particularly because he has epilepsy and falls as well. The little boy was afraid to go anywhere as he suffered from frequent episodes and falls. His grandmother, now taking care of him, was unable to get him the medication he needed as the hospital required that he see a child neurologist but neither one was available in the public hospital. The medications he was taking was not helping. We got him in to see a neurologist, properly diagnosed and on the proper medication. He is now a completely different boy. No longer suffers from falls. He is finally losing his fears.

Remember that it is going to take more time to get to the coast next year and more time to get back.

There is nothing like driving yourself!

I have added additional vehicles to our fleet and invite you to contact me for details. They are brand-new or late model vehicles and will also carry our satisfaction guarantee, reduced prices for long term rentals, and at times will have free kilometers. Things you don’t get with the big car rental companies, including delivery to your location and pick up when you are through with the rental.

If you have a car that is just sitting around gathering dust and running up bills with no income, perhaps you would like to contract it out to Cuenca Car Share and gain some revenue from it. Contact me.

Recommendation for La Cumbre Estancia, hotel

I recently stayed three nights in La Cumbre Estancia, just across from the Tomebamba linear park. The hotel is absolutely beautiful, new, full of character, and pet friendly. Each of the 10 attractive and spacious rooms has its own bath. The owners and staff are friendly, helpful, and pay attention to every detail. There’s parking, WIFI, and cable TV. A delicious breakfast of fresh fruit, eggs, juice, and some sort of carbs is served each morning, and coffee and tea are available throughout the day. It costs $30 per person per day.

Recommendation for Leonardo’s Landscaping, landscaping

It’s not often that I make a recommendation to the group, so when I do, it’s because someone/business has provided me with excellent customer service. Such is the case with Leonardo of Leonardo’s Landscaping. Leonardo just installed 5 new plants in my apartment and re-potted 2 existing plants. Leonardo sent me a number of pictures of plants to choose from and the ones he delivered were exactly as pictured. No bait and switch here, as if often the case in Cuenca. I was also appreciative that he showed up on time and was extremely careful not to make a mess. His pricing was very reasonable as well. No gringo pricing here. Leonardo also does exterior landscaping for homes, from cutting grass to installing and maintaining plants. He also speaks really good English.
