Hola Saludos

Thanks so much for the information....I guess that we'd need to visit Cuenca and see the effects of altitude before deciding where to live.

Cheers....Susie

Altitude in Cuenca
by: RIE

Hola Susie,

For some people the altitude is a problem as Cuenca is situated some 8,000 feet above sea level. For many expats they need to aclimatize to the altitude and then like everyone else are ok. I know some people move to the coast as they do not like living in the higher altitudes.

Saludos
