How to Use This Blog -- Discover Cuenca Ecuador

The Discover Cuenca Ecuador blog has several hundred articles related to different aspects of living in Cuenca; based on actual experiences and observations on many different subjects. We have so much information detailed on this blog that for a reader to achieve the most out of the Discover Cuenca Ecuador Blog you will want to be sure to, 1.) use the buttons at the top of the blog that are located right below the big photo, and 2.) Use the Search Button to the right of this blog.

For instance: The button labeled “Cuenca Ecuador Real Estate” will have articles that cover the real estate market in Cuenca. In this category we go a step further and write about what we observe happening with the RE Market in Cuenca Ecuador, and we show expats how not to allow themselves to get gringo-gouged which is becoming more widespread as more foreigners move to Cuenca.

The button labeled “What is Cuenca Like” has articles about different subjects people have questions about and are concerned about such as Internet connectivity and availability. We also have articles that detail our experiences of what it is like to live day to day in Cuenca.

Another great way to see all of the articles we have written on certain subjects is to make good use of the search button to the right of the blog using keywords. For an example: If you want to view all of the articles that talk about crime and safety then use the keywords, “crime in Cuenca” or "personal safety" “How to stay safe in Cuenca”.  Several articles will pop up that are about crime and safety in Cuenca.

Just to give you an idea of how much content we have on this blog: We have posted a new article or video every couple of days on average, on this blog, so in addition to several hundred articles there are also hundreds of video posts so you're sure to find answers to your questions. But if you still don't find what you're looking for be sure to use the contact us button at the top of the page, and ask away...Although we don't answer personal questions we will make our best effort to find a best answer.

Also, if you are a subscriber you will get every new post we make in your email inbox or blog feed, depending on which way you subscribed. But what about all of the articles that were written before you subscribed? Use the two ways we mention above. Let us know your comments and questions--your thoughts are important to us.

If you want to see recent posts for any given month, don't forget to check out the "blog archive" to the right and middle of the blog. And the most popular blog posts for the month are down at the bottom of the blog page, so be sure to check those out as well.
