  • Fruits amazing! Tasty, colorful, cheap fruits. Clean to be Ecuador, but for European standard not that clean.
  • The safest market in Cuenca. But don't flash money around.
  • This is a fantastic place to get fresh fruit, vegetables, honey, etc. This is a true farmer's market. The prices are tough to beat. Bring cash and be prepared for narrow walkways. If you want fresh, organic food, at a great price this is the place to go.
  • Not as clean as 9 de Octobre Market, only compared to the other markets it doesn't stand out, but still has everything you need in a market
  • Great place to buy food and stuff for your household. Everything you need you will get there. Best of it are the small restaurants and food stands at the second floor.

Where to stay in Cuenca

Extremely popular with international visitors and expats, Cuenca features the sizeable range of hotel options you might expect from a renowned tourist destination. Scores of hotels and bed and breakfasts line the streets of the city's old town, many of them occupying historic mansions and homes restored to their former glory. The larger, more upscale hotels in the city center tend to offer onsite restaurants and other amenities, while cheaper hostels feature little more than bunk beds in exchange for much lower rates. However, keep in mind that Cuenca's popularity has a flip side, as the large foreign presence makes for higher prices than elsewhere in Ecuador and also large fluctuations in cost depending on the season.
