Southern Sierra

This region’s relative isolation makes for a delightful step back in time. The colonial center of Cuenca rivals Quito for its churches, plazas, and museums but has a pace as gentle as its people. Ingapirca is Ecuador’s best set of Inca ruins, and Cajas National Park is one of the country’s most rugged hiking spots.
