Mall del Rio in Cuenca Ecuador
The largest mall in the city, Mall del Rio, will have you wondering if you even left your hometown. This probably isn’t what you thought would be in Ecuador’s Andes Mountains.

A large multi-screen theater, bowling alley, huge food court, and over 220 other stores and kiosks that will satisfy whatever apparel, electronics, entertainment or food craving you may get. Other malls in the city include Millennium Plaza and Coral Centro.

Half a dozen bus lines travel this route, and of course the taxis know the route. just a $2.50 taxi from Parque Calderon will get you there. It’s open 10am-9pm seven days a week, just like any mall back home.

My favorite spot is La Victoria – the technology (and music) shop near the food court on the second floor. They are Ecuador’s version of Best Buy. The prices are reasonable, and they carry dSLR cameras and professional tripods, high end keyboards, designer sunglasses and everything audio/video. There is also a location in the center and near the stadium.
