I was having lunch at Las Cruces and I struck up a conversation with the expat American couple next to me. We were talking about Cuenca, restaurants and expat life there. I told them I was going on a tour of the chocolate factory on Gran Columbia which is just doors from my hotel. They told me it closed about two months ago. The hotel staff confirmed and I walked by and it was shuttered. I think it odd that TripAdvisor is still selling tickets.
