    The Planetarium of Cuenca has a modern screen type dome and comfortable seating in which is practically lying down to see the projection, but sadly, that they have changed the analog equipment for a digital projector of very poor quality, offering a poor visual experience and also does not have a film suitable for a planetarium. That project is a kind of documentary or introduction to the ALMA project, an array of radio telescopes located in the Atacama desert in Chile to the observation of deep space that does not offer the observation of our solar system and its planets, for example, that would be basic in a planetarium in my opinion, and a look at other galaxies, stars and planets. Just show some galaxies and a digital reconstruction of a collision of galaxies that barely can enjoy it for the poor quality of the projection. If only the municipality of Cuenca has the opportunity of improving equipment to offer a better experience to the visitors.

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.
