Cuenca is charming; Quito, beautiful setting, fun place to visit; Guayaquil, none of the above.

Has this changed in the last 40 years?!

The Inca empire is often described as ancient, but in fact it was founded in 1438 AD and only lasted a little over 100 years. The beginning of the Inca civilisation only goes back a couple of centuries before that.

@marjobro Guayaquil is a great place, with interesting historical places and museums, parks full of iguanas and turtles, an island nature reserve with crocodiles that you can cycle around on a raised boardwalk... More interesting than Cuenca in my book!
