Buying Clothes in Cuenca
You will not have any problems finding clothes in Cuenca. There are more clothing and Jewelry shops in El Centro than we've ever seen for the size of what Cuenca is. Cuenca is just a bit shy of half a million people. Here's some snapshots of a few retail clothing shops that we took today as we were walking around downtown. There are sales all over the place because of the Christmas season.
Cuenca is in the Andes mountains so much of the clothing is sweaters, pants, jeans, jackets, hoodies, and long sleeve shirts. Although we have seen swimming suits and shorts for sell, probably for the warmer coastal regions.
Most of these Clothing shops were on Gran Columbia
