The Central Flower market in Cuenca always draws visitors to buy armloads of these beauties…nothing quite like flowers.

There are better reasons such as great shopping as explain in this article “Shop Till You Drop In Cuenca” by  Ernest Neumann

Shop Till You Drop … Only in Europe You Say?  I beg to differ!  The ardent shopper can easily find in Ecuador and Cuenca in particular  divine shopping (window or otherwise)!  It’s easy to find class, elegance, great selections, uniqueness, and best of all–superb bargains even with inflation beginning to be felt in this part of the world.

The most discriminating of tastes will be satiated in Cuenca’s upscale shops, its markets, its fair trade and family operated handcrafted business enterprises.  Let’s don’t forget as well, its numerous artisan and artist operated boutiques. In this beautiful historic city, you will find everything from the Panama Hat which first made this city famous to unique and special ceramics and pure chocolates, as well as silver and gold!

Join me as we embark on a little series of articles that tour some of the awesome selection of shopping delights that this beautiful city offers to locals, expats and visitors alike.

Don’t forget when visiting Cuenca, perhaps joining one of Ecuador Living’s Cuenca Real Estate Tours, plan to stay a little longer so you can enjoy all the city has to offer and be prepared to have any extra room in your luggage quickly filled!

Here I am awash in a sea of gorgeous Panamas!

Over the next little while, I would like to bring you on some excursions that will include a visit to such places as a genuine Panama Hat factory, a family chocolate shop and factory that rivals anything in Belgium, some artist studios, the largest producer of orchids in South America, gold and silversmiths, and a very famous jewelry operation to name just a few.

Get your shopping bags ready and come exploring in Cuenca and its environs.
