Free language exchange by YEES

A fun and relaxing environment to use your Spanish and English. Come and join us at Selina’s terrace (Calle Larga 7-93) every Saturday for a chance to practice with native English and Spanish speakers and meet new friends. This Exchange is basically a casual conversation where we switch languages every 30 minutes. This event is free, however, due to the pandemic, don’t forget to follow these directions:

– If the receptionist ask what do you want, tell him/her that you’re a member of #YEES and there’s a language exchange at the terrace that you’re attending.
– Even though Selina’s terrace is an open space and they have all the biosecurity measures, the pandemic isn’t over yet so don’t forget to keep social distance.
– The conversation will be spontaneous as usual. The only rule is switching languages every 30 minutes. You decide which language goes first.

July 31st, from 2 to 4 PM, Free event, Calle Larga 7-93, Cuenca.

Scratching posts for cats, made by Jesus

I am a manufacturer. I make different models and designs of scratching posts for cats with their little house and their different measures, the height of your preference.

– With excellent fabric, strong sisal and wood. Scratchers for cats allow us to release energy and anxiety.

– Scratching posts are something like mats where we can do yoga. There we can release all the tensions of cat life.

– Scratching de-stresses us a lot because even if they don’t believe, we can also suffer from anxiety or hyperactivity. This helps us not to damage the furniture at home.

I carry out and deliver to different provinces.

I have different designs.

Thank you all for being excellent customers.

Meet your 13 new best friends

Cream’O’Gurt Yogurt is made with organic milk, not fully pasteurized. It has 13 different identified bacterial strains and 250 billion live cultures/liter. That’s more than 17x the number of live cultures in the best competitive brand of yogurt!!!

And how many different species of bacteria are in the yogurt you’re eating now? Two? Maybe three? Hmmmm…

Here are the 13 strains of bacteria identified so far in Cream’O’Gurt yogurt:
• Bifidobacterium animalis (also known as Bifidus regularis)
• Bifidobacterium bifidum
• Bifidobacterium lactis
• Bifidobacterium longum
• Enterococcus faecium
• Lactobacillus acidophilus
• Lactobacillus casei
• Lactobacillus delbrueckii
• Lactobacillus johnsonii
• Lactobacillus gasseri
• Lactobacillus plantarum
• Lactobacillus rhamnosus
• Saccharomyces boulardii.

Most of us are concerned about our health, as we should be. For thousands of years, people have been enjoying the health benefits of eating fermented foods, including yogurt.

Scientists have only recently begun learning how vital our gut health is for our overall well being. But it seems to be key for much of our health.

Right here in Cuenca, we have access to the absolute best yogurt on the planet. Why not take advantage of it? You’ll be happy that you did.

Cream’O’Gurt yogurt comes in 14 different flavors. Check them out on DEFY’s website, on the Drinkable Yogurt link.

Delivery is by bicycle or electric vehicle in Cuenca and free for orders $25 and over.

The weekly order cut-off is at noon on Wednesday with deliveries on Friday and Saturday.

We’re looking forward to treating you and Planet Earth, with dignity.

1 bedroom, fully furnished Cajas condo has spectacular views

A brand-new fully furnished condo in an exclusive gated community on the rim of El Cajas National Park has just been put on the market. This glorious, one-bedroom, one-bath 1000 square foot corner condo is built to North American standards with a fireplace, heated floors, open concept living and dining areas and an outdoor patio. The condo is one of the biggest and best now available in the complex, perfect as a deluxe Andes homes or as weekend getaways, vacation rental, or investment property.

Located in Valle Encantado, the condo is safely nestled in a high-end development consisting of two, 2-unit condo buildings surrounding inner courtyards, and two separate homes set on 10 acres of prime forest and riverfront land with views rivalling any in the world.

And, with a recent restriction on all new buildings in the El Cajas National Park region, due to its UNESCO Biosphere status, this high-end development is the last complex that can be built in this area … a major consideration for buyers looking for solid returns on investment.

The condo has an open concept floor plan with upgrades that include 50 Mega Etapa Fiber Internet, Peruvian Travertine floors with radiant heat, large fieldstone fireplaces, tongue, and groove woodwork, cathedral ceilings with open rafters, granite-top kitchen islands, plus small Flagstone patios. It also has million-dollar views.

The windows are vinyl clad with Tempered and laminated security glass, UV protection, and sound blocks that ensure peace and quiet inside your home. The units also include 8′ solid wooden doors, baseboards, extension jams, and casings made out of solid wood, plus granite sills under all of the doors and windows.

The gated community—with 24-hour security, an electric entry gate, and multiple camera security systems–is safe and secure, yet within walking distance to nature’s bounty.

Known for its incredible hiking paths through evergreen cloud forests and for its hundreds of lakes and lagoons, El Cajas National Park is home to rich wildlife including Andean condors, giant hummingbirds, llamas, wild horses, and raccoon-like coatis. Trout fishing, bird watching, exploring Incan ruins, biking, and just relaxing are all that you can expect when you live or vacation in one of the most unspoiled mountain retreats in the world.

The HOA for the unit is approximately $160 per month and covers sewer and solid waste disposal, security, land maintenance, management fees and insurance on the exterior of the complexes.

This brand-new fully furnished condo in an exclusive gated community on the rim of El Cajas National Park is listed for $170,000.

Furnished. Negotiable. Pets are allowed.

Beautiful fully overhauled squarebody truck for sale

Hello Dear Expat Community, My name is Adrian Mora and some of you already know me. I am starting a new life project. Because of this I put the truck of my dreams for sale… It is a GMC Jimmy Sierra Classic 1980 that was totally rebuilt by myself along 7 years of detailed hard work and had to import tons of parts from the USA.

It’s the only truck of this year in Ecuador in this condition that has the original motor with an advanced electronic fuel injection system. It drives like a new car and has original manual transmission 4×4 with many components that are increasing its performance.

If someone is interested, please feel free to call or email, for more details, fotos or a driving test. I assure you will fall in love when you see it and it will take you back to the 80s as soon as you open the driver side door.

Asking price $25k, negotiable and open to trades with another vehicle. If you are not interested but know someone who could be, please share my contact. I would be also willing to export it to the USA if is required.

Thank you very much for your attention and have a wonderful day!

Recommendation for Hogar de Esperanza bill pay, business services

My experience with Hogar de Esperanza’s bill pay service over the past six months has been spectacular. They keep up with the bills, pay them on time, then send me a PDF via email of what they did, and my cash balance remaining on account with them.

They charge a small fee which goes to support their great organization, which supports people in great need. I much prefer supporting them and their work than paying a higher fee at my local commercial bank. Also, dealing with them is a much more pleasant experience.

Highly recommended – take a load off your mind and support the Hogar.

Recommendation for Cuenca Salmon, prepared and frozen foods

Cuenca Salmon has proven once again to have the best USDA Rib Eye steaks and Rack of Lamb. The steaks cooked on the carbon are fantastic and the Rack of Lamb that I roasted in the oven was able to be cut with a butter knife. The staff, Alfonso and Mike are extremely helpful. I will continue to buy my meats and salmon from Cuenca Salmon. You guys rock!

Yunguilla, 1-level home has 400 sq. ft. of terrace and spectacular views

This 2,200 sq. ft. Yunguilla sanctuary Has 400 sq. ft. of terraces, never-ending views. and a hot tub to soothe your soul.

Situated on nearly an acre of land and at an elevation of 3,500 feet, this 2,200 sq. ft. Yunguilla sanctuary on a hill exudes charm and calm, with ever-changing panoramic vistas from all directions.

Located five minutes from the quaint town of Santa Isabel in Yunguilla, this private and peaceful 3-bedroom, 2-bath home is also only 5 minutes to the Autopista and about an hour and a half to Cuenca. And, thanks to its lower elevation, Yunguilla has a much warmer climate than the colonial city and tons of sunshine year-round.

The home is a gardener’s paradise where every type of fruit and vegetable imaginable can grow. Already on the property, there are avocado, orange and lemon trees, and a vegetable garden. Picturesque stone walking paths allow for easy walking through the terraced land. On the lower level, there is room for additional orchards, gardens or a casita, mother-in-law apartment, studio, or workshop. There is also a gorgeous hot tub with a fieldstone rock surround.

The single-story home — designed by the owner to North American standards — has an open concept plan with the living room, dining area and kitchen flowing seamlessly together. There are also 400 square feet of terraces that can be accessed from the living room and all three bedrooms with spectacular panoramic views of the mountains and valley below.

The house is angled so that the sun never directly floods the home, there are irrigation ditches surrounding the property to keep away rain and water, and little extras like screens on all of the windows illustrate the great attention to detail the owner put into the property. This light, bright home was also built with cross ventilation in mind so there’s always a nice breeze, even on the hottest days.

The large kitchen includes a spacious island, perfect for entertaining and cooking for a crowd. The kitchen comes with a refrigerator, stove, oven, range hood, and a washer and dryer that is housed in a separate laundry room with a washing sink. There is also a hook-up and space for a dishwasher should the new owner want to add one.

Down a long and lovely hallway, you’ll find the master suite, with a walk-in closet, a large master bathroom with double sinks, and a bathtub surrounded by windows so you can soak in the natural beauty around you — literally.

At the other end of the hallway are the two additional bedrooms and the second bath, which also serves as the social, guest bath. One bedroom is currently being used as an office. All three bedrooms have spectacular views and their own private sliding doors leading out to the patios.

There is a front and side lawn, a garden area, and manicured flowers and bushes surrounding the property and there is also a lovely iron gate at the entrance to the parking area.

The property gets its water from the city and there is a separate source for irrigation.

High-speed Internet and Direct TV are both available. Utilities are about $30 per month and property taxes are approximately $82 annually.

This very special house comes with all the appliances. Select furnishings may be negotiated. The asking price is $195,000.

Semi-furnished. Negotiable. Pets are allowed.

Address: La Union/Santa Isabel Yunguilla.
