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.

Yunguilla Valley is well known for its beauty, the warmer climate, and the stunning homes found tucked up and down its hillsides. What it’s not known for is finding one of those beautiful homes, with a pool and stunning views for under $95,000. And certainly not for the $92,000 list price of this BRAND NEW home! We can’t believe this beautiful 3-bedroom, 2.bathroom, 1,200 square foot, modern open-space home is for sale for this price! It sits on more than a third of an acre, plenty of land for you to plant your fruit trees, or a vegetable garden or just to feel the grass under your feet! The views from this home are, well, indescribable. Really, nothing we say will make you feel the way you will when you look out over this beautiful valley. You’ll feel closer to nature, to the earth, to something we just can’t put into words. You’ll have to see it for yourself. And when it’s a nice, comfortable, dry, 80 degrees outside, and you’re relaxing in that pool, you’ll quickly forget every little bitty worry you have! Because this is how you were meant to live, and you can have it for less than you would pay for a small condo in Cuenca! As for living this “far out” from Cuenca, well that’s not a big deal for any of the expats who live out here now! Believe it or not, a lot of expats have moved here for the peace and quiet, the easier life, the warm temperatures, and the chance to be closer to nature. They don’t need the “big city,” because they are close to Santa Isabel and get most of what they need there And don’t worry about missing your friends in Cuenca, that’s what that extra bedroom is going to be for when they find out you have a pool! Property features: Nice flat lot, gorgeous views, brand new construction, some fruit trees, nice and new working heated pool. Excellent price. Only 5 minutes from the main road.
