Enjoy a Birds-Eye-View of Parque Calderon

parque calderon cuencaCuenca is recognized as one of the top retirement cities in the world. It’s also a top tourism destination. Take a glimpse at main square in Cuenca: Parque Calderon.

There are, at the least, half a dozen great coffee shops lining the Parque. This video was shot from a second story cafe (above Frutilados). On a side note, Frutilados is one of the nicest cafes in the center. Certainly worth a visit. Also – be sure to try the $0.90 espresso. It’s good stuff.

    I had a fantastic dinner in this cafe. It was a fish filet. Very cheap and the fixings were superb. Highly recommended…
