|Tranvia in Cuenca Ecuador|
Unfortunately, we pay more for water usage in Cuenca Ecuador than we did in the states…granted, that was 5 years ago, but still, the point is the water bill costs just keep going higher and higher. We are five people so that does account for some of the higher water bill. Still though, even with the second upped cost it should be about $40 bucks, not $80-$100.
Just giving you a heads up for when you get here and want to rent a house or apartment in Cuenca. When the landlord or the real estate agent tells you the water bill will be $12 for two people, that’s not true anymore. More like $25 to $30 for water and the same for electricity…and that’s for two people. I know still sounds cheeeep, but not if you were here two years ago before they tripled the utility services. Is the trend your friend? Not here.
Until we write again…
