At this time there are no direct flights from the u.s to Cuenca. International flights land either in Quito or Guayaquil Ecuador. If you land in Guayaquil there are three ways you can come to Cuenca, you can take a van, plane, or bus. This video shows what it is like taking the 3-1/2 hour bus ride ($8 per person) into the Andes and thru Cajas Mountains.
