Living in Ecuador is great, especially in Cuenca. Santa Ana de los Ríos de Cuenca is located on an interandean valley on Southern Ecuador (441 km south of Quito), at an elevation of 2.535 meters, It enjoys a typically warm weather, with an average temperature of 17°C. Its population is of approximately 400.000 inhabitants and its surface area is of 15.730 hectares.
I moved to Cuenca about a year ago. I like it much better than Quito. My gold mining projects are only a three-hour drive down to the jungle. My favorite surfing beach is a five-hour drive to the Pacific coast.
