Special shout-out to our Cuenca hotel owners (a small family of 3) at Casa Reyes. We booked with them on Booking.com as they didn't require a credit card and had airport pick up too. They didn't speak English and we didn't speak Spanish, but somehow it all worked out! :)
Ingapirca ("Inca stone wall") lies in the Canar Province of Ecuador and takes its name after the Inca palace and temple site. Contrary to popular belief, the Incas were not the first inhabitants of Ingapirca, but the indigenous group of the Canari originally settled here before the Incas arrived in the 15th century.
Though it was a long-drawn out battle between the Incas and the Canai, the two communities actually built the community together afterwards! World peace!
