Best starry skies in Ecuador?

We're moving to Ecuador in August, and I'm wondering where we would find the starriest skies? We will have an apartment in Cuenca so I am looking for a nearby weekend dacha; mildly tumbledown is fine, I don't need much, just starry, starry skies. The project is to photograph the zodiacal light, solar system dust shining in sunlight. It happens only for 2-3 hours after sunset, 2-3 hours before dawn, seen best in the tropics and best of all right down at the horizon. I do know Cuenca is cloudy but there must be clear skies somewhere?
