We spent a few days at this relaxing hotel in the Yunguilla Valley, called El Jardin del Valle. We were the only visitors during the middle of the week! We’re told that on the weekend, it’s a bit more crowded. Since it’s a few thousand feet lower than Cuenca, the weather was much warmer…sunbathing weather! Never even left the place to traipse around, we were quite happy here. Wonderful breakfast with fresh fruit, and the lunch/dinner menu includes ceviche, hamburguesas and lots of options. Ice cream poolside as the sun went down. The setting sun making the mountains red across the valley — priceless.
