We have reconstructed a traditional rural adobe home in downtown Cuenca that we call Pumamaqui Accommodations. Four large studio apartments surround a garden and cobblestone courtyard, with the city just outside your door.

Additional Location Information

From Pumamaqui Accommodations' location on Honorato Vazquez street, visitors can walk for miles along Cuenca's linear parks, which follow the course of its four rivers. Close-by large city parks, including Parque de la Madre and Parque el Paraiso, are actively used by local residents and visitors for exercise, relaxation and picnics. The main city plaza, Parque Calderón, is 5 blocks away. Leaving from the Parque Calderón are double-decker buses that tour the downtown and stop at Turi Hill, giving a bird's-eye view of the city.

Other attractions of our neighborhood include a great many quality restuarants, among them Moliendo Café (Colombian), HR-Hermanos de la Ruta (Spanish tapas), Bella Cuba, El Mediterráneo and La Viña (Italian), and Los Tiestos and El Monasterio (Ecuadorian and international). Museums include the Banco Central's cultural museum with Inca ruins, a botanical garden and zoo; the Museum of Aboriginal Culture, founded by the historian Juan Cordero Iñiguez; the Sagrario Religious Museum (once Cuenca's original cathedral) on Parque Calderón, dating from 1567; the Museum of Modern Art on San Sebastian park; and a great many private art galleries. Coffee shops, bread stores, bars, bookstores, hat stores and shopping are all available close-by.
