Cuenca Ecuador Mattresses: Shopping at Muebles Vera Vázquez for a New Mattress

Even though our rental house came with mattresses, they hurt our backs so we decided to look at some new Cuenca Ecuador mattresses.

Amelia still works for a company based in Denver, CO and she goes back for a week four times per year. Time goes very slowly while she’s gone and I’m always very happy when she returns!

After sleeping on comfortable beds at her parents’ house and in hotels for 11 nights, Amelia told me it was time to finally buy un colchón nuevo (a new mattress).

We were planning to go shopping the afternoon that she returned to Cuenca. However, after a long day of travel and an early morning flight Quito to Cuenca, she was too tired to go shopping so we went the next day.

My physical therapist, Karina, told us to buy a new mattress several months ago, but we kept putting it off. The mattress that came with our rental house is very old and not supportive, which we believe has been contributing to my back pain and Amelia’s hip pain. For some reason, though, we were intimidated to go shopping for new mattress here in Cuenca Ecuador.

Karina recommended we go to Muebles Vera Vázquez in the San Sebas part of town and look at mattresses from Chaide. She said that was a good Ecuadorian brand of mattress. We tried several and found one we liked.

The store is currently under massive construction, which is why it was so crowded and noisy. The store occupies six floors in an old building, and they’re in the process of doubling the size with an expansion. They said it would be completed in two months, but I find that very hard to believe. There was literally NO building next door. They had completely torn it down to the ground. If they finish rebuilding that in two months, I’ll be very impressed.

UPDATE: Our first night in our new bed was heavenly! It’s 100 times better than the old mattress. My back and Amelia’s hip already feel better!

Hola todos! Welcome to my author bio page! Let's see. Where to begin... I grew up in the country on a lake outside a small Kansas farm town. As soon as I could, I got the hell outta there! Since then, I've lived and/or worked in Kansas City, Washington D.C., Denver, San Francisco, and Ecuador. I started and sold a dotcom, wrote a book about it, started a YouTube channel, and now I write a lot. Amelia and I have embraced the Unconventional Life and we want to help you do it, too!
