Special Update: Medical Care Tour and Luncheon

Dear Cuenca Condos Readers,

While investigating Cuenca’s medical offerings for our series on life in Cuenca, we discovered a special lunch event being held at 12:30 PM on Thursday and Friday of this week that may help you feel more comfortable with using the local hospitals. Both the Thursday and Friday sessions are the same so pick the one that works best for your schedule.

Hospital Del Rio, a newly constructed $45 million dollar facility, is offering a luncheon and tour event for the local expat population. The event offers attendees the chance to tour the facilities and interact with the staff, as well as receive a gift from the hospital.

There is no charge for the event, but reservations are needed. Please call Alexandra Borja, the Hospital del Rio Marketing Manager at 08 489 2254 to make reservations. She speaks English and will be more than happy to help you be a part of the event. Best Regards, Cuenca Condos Staff P.S. Stay tuned to the Cuenca Condos Blog later in the week for coverage of this event and Medical Care in Cuenca.

Best Regards,

Cuenca Condos Staff

Volcanoes In Ecuador

This week we are taking a break from our series on life in Cuenca to address an area of concern that has been steaming up the airwaves about Ecuador – volcanoes.

First and foremost, Cuenca doesn’t have an active volcano right next door.  That’s Quito and Banos de Ambato, who deal with volcanic eruptions much more actively.  Here, we benefit from the same kinds of geologic heat power, but Cuenca enjoys being surrounded by hot thermal springs instead of ash-spewing mountains.
