  • It's a good effort, but I think that you need you to improve enough to make it more attractive. Owners indicate that they are in it.

  • Address: Bolívar 657 and Borrero opposite the Church of San Alfonso El Museum of skeletons "Dr. Gabriel Moscoso E.", is a private initiative aimed at the conservation of nature through scientific research and environmental education. Created on the basis of the collection compiled by over forty years by Dr. Gabriel Espinosa Moscoso. The main intention of the Museum is to generate awareness in visitors resulting in a change in individual and collective behaviors of everyday life that can affect the environment. The philosophy of the Museum is based on the premise that no one appreciates what do not know and that science should bring to the public through exhibitions that are entertaining more than informative. And that does not only imply a transfer of information ecological or conservation but allows reflection of the visitor, after which it can be assigned a personal value to natural resources, creating a multiplier effect in society. As part of its mission the Museum aims to become a scientific research centre to the South of the country, for which from the year 2004 its mission is the protection of biological diversity and Cultural of the Ecuador through scientific research and dissemination of scientific knowledge and cultural diversity associated and the use of art as a means of achieving its objectives.

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.
