After finishing our 2 weeks of Spanish in Montanita we headed onwards to the colonial city of Cuenca. We booked at Alternative Hostel, and were not disappointed. Anytime we get a private room in a hostel that is clean and has a fully equipped kitchen for $10 each we're happy!
The hostel wasn't in the city centre but close enough to walk within 10 minutes. The first day we arrived we checked out the local area and did a self guided tour.
We visited the old town, the colonial buildings and the multiple churches in the area. The buildings were very beautiful and had a very European vibe.
The next day we had a cute little picnic down by the river that runs through town!
As you can probably tell by the brief nature of this post, pictures do the talking for this cute colonial city!
The real special part of our visit to Cuenca was our visit to Cajas National Park.. Read out next post to see why!
