Almuerzo Lunch with Jose Vargas of Anconcito Ecuador

Remember a few weeks back we shared a video of Anconcito Ecuador with Jose Vargas? Jose spent his day giving Frank and I a grand tour of Anconcito. Afterwards, he and his family invited us over for a traditional Ecuadorian almuerzo in their home. Ecuadorians have huge families. This is a gathering of a four generation family enjoying quality, family time with one another, which is very typical here in Ecuador. When we say that Ecuadorians are gracious and friendly, this is what we're talking about.


Vargas Family
We invited Jose and his family to come and visit us in Cuenca but they would rather that we visit them in Anconcito because it is hard traveling with Grandma.


  1. Beautiful! Brings a smile to my face. It won't be long before I'll be heading that way. This is one of the reasons I want to move to Ecuador. Family unity and the graciousness of the extended family.

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. I am very blessed to live in this fishing village. It is a very special place and you have been able to share a bit of what it is like here through your video. Thank you!
