Entranced by the Rio Muchacho

The kids running barefoot just like the other ranch kids.

Our Visit to a Sustainable Organic Ranch on Ecuador’s Central Coast.

When our family looks for day trips and travel excursions, we do so with two young children in mind. Our children are small, just 2 and 4 years old.  Family-friendly activities are important for the pleasure of each of us, yet we strive to find unique and adventurous attractions. Life in Ecuador is a bit different in terms of tourism resources. Unless you want to hit the big tourist traps, there are not a lot of resources for off the beaten path type destinations. The locations are certainly here, but it takes a lot of digging and prodding, and reliance on locals to find out about lesser-known locales.

**The rest of this post has not been moved to our new blog site, please continue reading it there. So sorry for this minor inconvenience as we move blog locations to better support our growth. Thank you for being one of loyal readers!

  1. Wow, it looks like you and your family had a really unique local experience. Your words and your images make me want to follow in your footsteps and make a reservation. And of course I’m so curious about the “freshest cup of coffee”.

  2. I loooooove the black and white pictures here. I also love that your children seemed to get wrapped up in the culture., which is what more people should be teaching their children!

    1. Oh thank you so much, I really appreciate the compliments on the photography. And you are right, we try very hard to give our kids a genuine cultural experience by avoiding overly touristy places. So far it is paying off!


  3. I am glad you are exposing your children to sustainable farming. I recently came across this concept of regenerative farming. As there seems to be the notion when people sustainable they want to sustain the norm. I wonder if such ideas have reached this place that you have been too.

    1. Thank you. This place, ,the Rio Muchacho is full of workshops and seminars that teach people how to make this way of life possible. I am fully aware of what it means to do regenerative farming, but I wouldn’t be surprised at all if this concept is part of what they aim to teach.
