Looking for a Homestay in Cuenca

I am interested in Cuenca and also in finding a family or individual interested in receiving paying guests. My husband is 70 and I am 64. I am conversant in Spanish but want very much to live with a family who do not speak English, where I can improve my fluency. We would like to stay for a few weeks at first, with an option to return for a month or two.

We are both professionals. My husband is a retired teacher and I am a professor.

It is so difficult to find connections in searching for an appropriate family willing to have us. I have contacted a few language schools who arrange home stays, but they cannot do so unless you enroll in a language class. I prefer an immersion experience and not a school situation.

I wonder if you have any ideas and would be willing to help us. Thanks so much!

Thank you so much for your suggestion. I actually have not found a place yet, but I had contacted Yanapuma some time ago. They are trying to help me and I am hoping they will soon find a place for me. I am getting anxious since we want to spent at least a month in Cuenca in October/November.

I don't know if you have found anything or when you posted this but you can check out Yanapuma Home Stay
they are a Spanish School but if you send in the contact form they can also arrange home stay. Good luck. http://www.retire-in-ecuador.com/YanapumaSpanishSchool.html
