What's It Like Living in a Tourist City Like Cuenca Ecuador?

This is what it's like living in a tourist city like Cuenca Ecuador. The comments in this video are by people who live here and can see with their own eyes what is happening in this beautiful city that keeps getting touted as a "cheap paradise". Remember: paradise is not here or there, it is what we make our paradise to be. We loved the comment someone made when they said "Cuenca is beautiful, but it's not cheap". we agree wholeheartedly with the commenter.

  1. What about the people who say that it's the returning Ecuadorians who are causing the price increases?

    1. did you watch the video...they are INCLUDED as being part of the price increases. BTW, retuning Ecuadorians are north americanized and they are considered GRINGOS! seriously! After living in the u.s for 20, 30 years they don't have a clue about local prices here anymore and do not care as much about it like the locals that have never left their home land for the u.s....
