Historical Biking and Rock Climbing Adventure, 2 Days

Cuenca is a must-see sight while you are in Ecuador.  This small city located in the southern highlands of Ecuador, was declared as World Cultural Heritage Site in 1999 by UNESCO, won the first place on the World’s Best Retirement Haven by International Living in 2009, and it is listed as one of the Lonely Planet’s Top Ten Cities To Visit in 2010.  However, Cuenca is much more than culture… in the last few years Cuenca´s surroundings have proved to have great adventure scenarios, rock climbing and biking are just two examples of what you are up to discover in the hidden south!

Trip Highlights
