Take a cab or the double decker bus, but don't miss the best view of Cuenca and the mountains on all sides. Sightseeing, shopping, food,it's all there. Has always been crowded so sometimes you have to jockey a bit if you want a group picture or landscape shot. It's worth the wait.As a bonus, a three minute walk down the... More

You can catch the open bus tour to this site from the main plaza. It cost about eight dollars and they stopped for about 30 minutes on top. It is a good view of the city… But the view from on top of the new cathedral is better! There are gift shops and the Vega pottery studio about 100 yards... More

We love to just go to Solano and catch the bus marked for Turi. Get off at the top, enjoy a coconut cake from a local lady in front of the church ($@), climb up the steps and have an ice cream (helado) with a stunning view out the windows, climb up to the statue of the Virgin, step inside... More

I went to El Turi during the day and at night as well and both views were simply amazing. There is WiFi available while you are up there which is a plus.

Ho hum. It is a nice view of the roofs of Cuenca. I walked up, about an hour from parque Calderon, the walk was the best part. Taxi down cost $2. Might do it again. Only for the excersise.

Near the Mirador, ask the locals where "El Columpio" (the swing) is. You need to walk up another flight of stairs to "Aventuri" where they have slides, swings, etc. There is one amazing swing (you have to pay another $2USD to use) where you swing out overlooking the entire city of Cuenca. Pretty scary but seriously unreal experience. Check out... More

Great view of all of Cuenca. Once you have taken photos there is a good gift shop right there and a few places to get snacks.

Walk up whether on roads or steps, don't need to pay a guide. Beautiful view of the city and valley. I am from the states and was safe everywhere I walked, residential or commercial areas.
