          Don't know either. Contact the hotel. im sure they will respond quickly.
          My wife and I are looking into making our 1st travel arrangements to Ecuador this coming December. I have been reading several good reviews about Hotel Los Balcones and are looking forward to visiting. We will need travel recommendations from the US to your hotel- which airport to fly into and then travel from the Ecuador airport to Cuenca. Read a nice review about Henry, driving a couple in a minivan, through the national park, on their way to the hotel- Nice! Also, understand you have long term rentals available- would be interested in hearing from you about these options, as well. Looking forward to meeting youyou on our 1st adventure to Ecuador.
