The Top Portal for Cuenca Real Estate

Cuenca, with its cobblestone streets and stately mansions, has become one of the world´s top retirement destinations. The city, Ecuador´s third largest, is home to approximately 350,000 citizens, and an estimated 4,000 expats. It is an extremely walkable city, and expats often gather near the Parque Abdon Calderon for coffee or drinks. The city is flush with both modern conveniences including 18 hospitals, and with 4 major universities attracting students from all over the world, it is often referred to as the Athens of the Andes.

Cuenca´s temperatures range from 50-75 degrees Fahrenheit, and is often hailed as the city of eternal spring. For those who love the outdoors, Cajas National Park offers incredible year round hiking. Most expats live extremely well on $2000 a month.

If you are seeking a rich cultural life with international symphonies and ballets and a mix of the historic and the modern, come see what makes Cuenca such a special place to retire.
