Cuenca and the Southern Sierra


As you head south down the Panamericana from the central highlands, the snowcapped peaks and rumbling volcanoes give way to a softer, gentler landscape of lower elevations and warmer, drier climates. Ecuador’s southern sierra was until recently a very isolated part of the country, with some of the most rewarding and beautiful pockets of Ecuador tucked away here.
