Rio Tomebamba, Cuenca

(4.5/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Cutting through the city, Rio Tomebamba divides Cuenca cleanly into a residential area on one side, and a historic colonial neighborhood on the other. Begin with a walk along Calle Larga, a charming street that runs parallel to the river. Admire the colonial architecture that characterizes this part of the city before descending the stairs to the riverside. While walking along the river, you'll pass a few interesting landmarks, like Museo de Artes Populares, home to an impressive collection of Latin American arts and crafts.
