For students looking to have the best experience while studying abroad, staying in a homestay is the best option. Homestays allow students to practice their Spanish outside of the classroom, learn more about Ecuadorian culture, and build lasting relationships with locals. All homestays are located within walking distance to the city center.
This once in a lifetime experience gives you the chance to live like a native Cuencan. You will get to experience all aspects of daily life as well as making lifelong friends and have your “family” away from home! These responsible families have previous experience in the accommodation and will do everything possible to make you feel comfortable during your stay. Students will probably stay with other students if they choose to live with a host family.
Before arriving to Cuenca, we can help you make arrangements for your time here. All host families are carefully selected and have many years of experience hosting students in their homes. Depending on the homestay, students can usually choose between single and double rooms, and students will most likely be staying with other students. Some homestays may include pets.
