Around Cuenca

There is as much to do outside of Cuenca as within it. Apart from the obvious architecture and colonial churches, Cuenca is close to the breathtaking El Cajas National Park and reserve, as well as Ecuador’s most significant Inca ruins, Ingapirca. This city is also surrounded by quaint villages, each of which is worth a visit: Gualaceo is a small town with colonial roots and a pleasant river park. Chordeleg is known for the numerous silver shops lining the main street and park. Sigsig is a bit far off, but a good place to see Panama hats being made in the traditional way. Bulcay is the last place to see the dying art of ikat weaving: there are less than 30 weavers who still practice it today. Girón boasts colonial architecture and the nearby waterfall of El Chorro. The nearby town of Jima is developing a fledgling tourism industry: it offers good hikes. Many tours will stop for lunch at the beautiful Hosteria Uzhupud.
