Fat Tuesday - Guayaquil vs Cuenca?

I'm on an extended visit to Cuenca. My girlfriend and a friend are flying into Guayaquil on Monday night, Feb 12. Tuesday is Fat Tuesday. I'm trying to decide whether we should travel to Cuenca Tuesday morning or Wednesday morning. I'd like some advice on what goes on in each city on Fat Tuesday (parades, etc.) and just how crazy each one gets in terms of water-throwing, foam-spraying, etc. For context my GF and I are about 60 and reasonably adventurous; the friend is 70 and less so.
