    Casa San Rafael is centrally located in beautiful Cuena, perfect for walking and exploring. The staff was exceptional and the room and common areas beautiful. The thick colonial walls and windows blocked out any unwelcome street noise and we slept wonderfully. Mucho gusto!

    We took a cab from the airport. It's the easiest way. Just show the driver the address, it works whether he speaks English or not.

    Additionally, about Casa San Rafael in Cuenca, Ecuador: There is no transport to a cruise-port, since there is none. Cuenca is high in the Andes, so no cruises. The airport is close by, a dollar or so by taxi. Enjoy.

    If they do not have one, I am sure they can refer you to a company that would take you to the port. They are very helpful.
