Why All the Posts about Panama? That's Not What I Signed Up For

We Are Based in Cuenca Ecuador & We Travel and Blog about It.

A reader asks: Why All the Posts about Panama on Your Discover Cuenca Blog; that’s not what I signed up for?

Why do we post about Panama on our Discover Cuenca Ecuador Blog? Well, because we visited Panama.  Our home base is in Cuenca but we do travel occasionally and of course we’re going to write about our adventures on our blog.

We often travel to the Ecuador coast a couple times a year and we write and make videos about the coast also. We travel to Quito every once in a while and we post about Quito. Now, we traveled to Panama and so we thought our readers would like to know about Panama; not only that but in some instances it’s good to make comparisons so our readers can get an idea of some of the fact differences between the two countries.

We also encounter quite a few people that, although they’re traveling to Cuenca Ecuador, have expressed an interest in discovering other areas, and Panama has come up a few times in conversations.

The nifty thing about getting our posts in your email is you can read the title and elect NOT to click on the post if you are not interested. We have written an article or made a video about Cuenca at least every other day for four years, so we have a lot of information and videos about Cuenca on the blog that you probably have not seen. 

We also have a MOVING TO CUENCA section and a WHAT'S CUENCA LIKE section on the Discover Blog.

To get the most out of the blog information and if you are looking for something specifically, we suggest doing a quick search using the search bar located on the right hand side of the blog to bring up any information you are looking for about Cuenca.

If you are looking for specific information about Cuenca, the DIY Cuenca Landing Guide covers among many other things, some of the finer point details on saving money when you first arrive in Cuenca, and of course, you can always email us with your questions and we’ll be happy to answer if we can. Until we write again…

  1. Hi, Angie and Frank,

    Just so you know, WE have no problems with watching your videos about other towns/cities in Ecuador OR your trip to Panama. They've served to assure us that our decision to move to Cuenca is - like the little bear's porridge was for Goldilocks - just right for us! (Of course, if you'd like to travel to Belize and Costa Rica - the other two locations on our original list of possibilities -, we'd certainly enjoy seeing your take on them, as well. However, we've convinced that it won't change our decision about Cuenca).

    Thank you for all you do to help those of us who still aren't lucky enough to have started "the next step" in our lives. Looking forward to sharing in the joy you have with living in our soon to be "new" home town.

    1. Thank you Charline for your kind words. Our thinking is the same as yours. Panama may not be a good fit for us or for you, but some people would love Panama City and some of the outlying cities within the country. Thank you for commenting.
