My husband and I have Ecuador on our top retirement countries, though we have never been. we are planning a trip and would love to see a lot in 10 days, but don't want to travel more than 2 of them. That being said, we would like to experience a town, countryside, beach or beaches. I read that there were a lot of expats in Cuenca, so maybe we could start or finish there. Does anyone have an idea what you would do if you were just wanting to experience a smidgeon of Ecuador in a short time?
