Throughout many years, I have provided a variety of services in Cuenca and around my country. I truly enjoy driving and visiting with you most of all. This year, I am dedicating myself to driving and being at your service as your needs dictate. If you need a ride around town, I can help. Want to visit the surrounding area?

Roof leaking? Need repairs? Emilio of All Trades, handyman

Quite some heavy rains we’ve had lately, right? At least in some parts of Cuenca it was heavy. Some people have found that when the rains come and wind blows, the roof springs a leak. We, Franklin Armando (my brother) and I, Emilio Morocho, are happy to come check it out. We have repaired leaks at many levels – from the roof to under the house.

We have extensive experience in handyman work as well as metal working. Need screens? Franklin can design and install them. Have a pet project just waiting for the right person? Explain it to us and we will tell you if it can be done.

Call us for your handyman needs. We have lots of references on GringoPost and Facebook.

Plan ahead – allow time for travel – Cuenca Car Share

As the rainy season advances, many challenges may await you as you travel around the country. You need to give yourself time. Is it worth a night or two extra at your destination to avoid missing a flight? If you are driving to Guayaquil, by now you surely know that some of the roads are impassable and other routes will be longer and have increased traffic. Maybe you want to book a couple of nights somewhere to avoid travel fatigue and anxiety that can make your trip unpleasant, to say the least.

Cuenca is a beautiful place to live and explore, but sometimes the urge to travel just overwhelms us and we need to get on the road. Cuenca Car Share can help. By planning ahead, you can book your tour or vacation and drive yourself wherever you wish to go in Ecuador.

We “share” the vehicles (thus the name, Cuenca Car Share), so the cost is lower than renting a car. We include auto insurance and may include free kilometers. There can be discounts on rentals of multiple days or weeks and these discounts will vary depending on the vehicle you choose and length of the contract.

Contact us today to book your long-anticipated vacation. Remember, we can deliver and pick up your vehicle.

Recommendation for Diana Palomeque, nursing care

Introducing an outstanding nurse who is currently available in Cuenca. Diana Palomeque is a fully certified, experienced, Ecuadorian nurse, whose skill set is equal to a RN in the states.

Diana tirelessly, professionally and compassionately cared for my husband, Jerry Joe Holland, during his last 7 weeks of life. Jerry adored her. She was an “angel’ and lived with us 24/7.

Not only did she provide the necessary palliative services around the clock, she helped with preparing food for Jerry, keeping the kitchen spotless and helped with any household tasks and errands that were needed. Her value added services were remarkable.

Diana was especially fond of our dogs and kitty and she gave them extra attention every day. Our animals loved her.

Diana understands and speaks some English and with the help of the translation apps, we had no issues whatsoever.

Diana rates are very competitive.

Diana has a consistent and lovely disposition and is a joy to work with. I highly recommend Diana for any present for future nursing needs you may have.

You are welcome to contact me for more information.
