Beautiful small towns are literally everywhere in the Andes here in Ecuador. Here is an amazing little town called Santa Isabel. We lived here for 3 years.

It’s in the southern part of Azuay province, on the road towards Machala.

The town is popular with Cuencanos – there are dozens of hosterias – all with swimming pools, volleyball courts, and soccer fields. And it’s really warm there. Its located in a valley called the Yunguilla Valley.

Yunguilla Valley Clouds, Andes Mountains Ecuador

The way the clouds settle in the Andes mountains often makes me feel like we are living in a dream.

We got this shot early one morning while driving through the beautiful Yunguilla Valley. In this picture, you can’t really see into the valley because it’s full of white fluffy clouds.
