Many expats ask about travel from Guayaquil to Cuenca. If you are only staying for a short time and plan to spend most of it in Cuenca I definitely suggest taking a van trip from Guayaquil to Cuenca. Travel through some absolutely awesome scenery. This is a 3-4 hour trip from the coast through ever changing flora and fauna. Travel up to the peak of the Cajas National Park at 11,000 feet and through the beautiful cloud forests before traveling down to Cuenca at 8,000.
Ecuador has some of the most breathtaking views and sometimes you will be forgiven to think that you are driving through a small town in Switzerland. Cows, horses adorn the hillsides and not to mention the beautiful natural waterfalls that you will spot here and there.
TerraDiversa has now launched a new shuttle van service for expats who wish to make this trip.
Expats enjoy the low cost and convenience of traveling from city to city in hired vans but for many, limited Spanish and the chore of having to try to communicate over the phone or go to the location in advance to make reservations is less than ideal.
TerraDiversa is happy to announce a new van reservation service from Cuenca to Guayaquil and Loja. Visit our convenient downtown office at Calle Larga 8-41 y Luis Cordero, where our English-speaking travel specialists will handle all the arrangements for you. Pre-pay your ride while you're there and you're ready to go! On the day of your journey we can also arrange taxi pickup at your home if needed to take you straight to the van company.
Total cost for this service is $15 one way and $30 round trip. For more information contact Flavia at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07 282 3782.
