Gualaceo Ecuador: A City 20 Miles East of Cuenca

Gualaceo is a nice, clean, and quaint little city. They have garbage sweepers here just like they do in Cuenca. It was very clean with lots of restaurants and little shops. We were amazed at this neat little city outside of Cuenca. In fact, it reminded us a lot of Cuenca. It is surrounded by beautiful mountains just like Cuenca! You can get anything in Gualaceo that you can in Cuenca. This video is of our bus ride to Gualaceo.



  1. is it safe for a single lady. do they accept pets. what is cost of renting a 1 or 2 bedroom. I would love an apartment in a private home.

    1. Hi June,
      When we visited this town a local told us that you can rent a house for $250 dollars a month and just a one or two bedroom apartment in a private home might even be less than that. Pets will be accepted for a pet deposit.
      Gaulaceo is a miniature of Cuenca.
