A Beautiful Escape From Cuenca
Girón, Azuay, Ecuador
Escape from the traffic, concrete, noise, and pollution of Cuenca and visit the small Andean town of Girón. Just 40 minutes by car or an hour by bus (costs $1.00) from Cuenca, we are just one block from the bus stop and easy to find. The picturesque town of Girón sits at the head of the Yunguilla valley and, due to being 1000 feet lower in elevation, is warmer than Cuenca with daytime temperatures almost always in the 70's. Girón offers beautiful views in every direction, hiking trails (including easy, moderate, and strenuous hikes to the beautiful El Chorro waterfall), horseback riding, a museum, a Sunday farmer's market, and a glimpse into the true pastoral culture of the Andes.The small authentic adobe apartment is suitable for a single or couple and is completely furnished and includes a private entrance, kitchen, wifi, Direct TV, linens, spacious closet... everything you will need for an Andean vacation. Relax on the patio in a beautiful setting and listen to the El Chorro river flowing by or take the 5 minute walk into Girón to explore and get the feel of the Andean culture. Unlike Cuenca, you are safe walking alone at night. Game and exercise room with ping pong also available.Please e-mail Scott and Ana with any questions.
