Recommended Transportation in Cuenca
Getting around isn’t a problem either. Big cities like Quito and Cuenca have an efficient bus service that plies the major routes. Low-cost taxis abound – just make sure to stick with registered taxis, which are often yellow in color. To be safe, have the hotel or restaurant call one for you, or rely on a radio dispatcher from a legitimate cab company.
If you’d rather drive yourself, international car rental companies can be found near the cities’ airports. Your driver’s license will be valid for three moths upon entering the country. Beyond that, you’ll need an International Driver’s License.
You can also travel by train from one city to another, while boats are available for island-hopping.
