If you've recently moved to Cuenca, or plan to move here soon, you'll appreciate having some help dealing with how things are done here—slowly, and in Spanish.
Having someone to help you with getting things done in Cuenca can make life a lot more enjoyable during your first months here (and even during your last weeks in North America).
Whether it's furniture and appliances for a house or apartment, or even finding an apartment to rent, there's someone here to help you.
Need to open a bank account, or get some paperwork through the government maze here in Ecuador? There's someone here who can help you with those.
Or maybe you're planning to ship items here from North America. It's not nearly as simple as some people will tell you. It's best to hire a professional to handle it. There's a business that does just that, right here in Cuenca.
We'll be listing every person or business we know about, if we know that they do a good job. But don't just take our word for it. Always ask for references before you hire the person or service.
Cathy Vicente is a professional translator. If you need documents translated into English, she's the person you need. Cathy can also help you with opening accounts or buying furniture, appliances, and other household items.
Lulie is here to help you with opening accounts, buying furniture, appliances and household items, and anything else where you need help with the language.
If you like to shop online at Amazon, etc., you'll want to know about Club Correos. It should save you time, money and plenty of headaches.

I just want to thank you both soooo much for creating this web site. I am originally from Cuenca but moved to New York 11 years ago and have not being back since. My husband and I are planning on visiting Cuenca over the Summer and this web site has helped me a lot.
When I came to the US we still had the "sucre," the bus ride cost 1,000 sucres and a pack of trident gum would cost 3,000 sucres. I am very nervous to go back, but thanks to your web site I now know what to expect.
My husband is American and Captivating Cuenca has taught him a lot about what my great city has to offer, things that I had forgotten about myself! :)
Thank You both so much! I cannot wait to visit Cuenca!!
