Cuenca, Ecuador is located in the Andes Mountains, about 200 miles from the equator, at an elevation of 8200 feet. It can be cold at this altitude, especially at night.
The population of Cuenca is about half a million people, and approximately 10,000 expats now live there, up from around only 500 seven or eight years ago.
Cuenca is the cultural capital of Ecuador, hosting over 200 cultural events every year, most of them free. And with the influx of expats in recent years, there are many western-style restaurants and services.
Cuenca was named the best place in the world to retire several times, which accounts for the explosive growth in the expat population.
