Hello Beautiful Cuenca!

I hope everyone was able to enjoy the many events and festivals held during this year’s Carnival season. This is one of my favorite times of the year, as this amazing city comes to life with colorful masks, elaborate costumes and numerous parades. And, let’s not forget the famous foam and water fights! What a fun way to come together for this spiritual celebration.

After a brief time in Texas, the “tortilla guy” Hector Muñoz is back. He has opened a brand-new store—a south-of-the-border sensation: Guey Tortillas Mexicanas. You’ll want to read all about how Hector uncovered his family’s secret recipe for making the best Tex-Mex products. His personal journey can be found on page 6.

The 3rd Annual Governor’s Expat Humanitarian Award event is scheduled for Thursday, May 28, 2020 at 6 p.m. This is a yearly celebration held for expats who have made a positive contribution to the Azuay province. Nominations are now open. Please go to and nominate one or more fellow expats who have contributed to the betterment of our community. As one of the founding members of this prestigious award, I can’t express enough the importance of a simple “Thank you.” Get your nominations in today!

Save the Date. As a community service, we are continuing our monthly free dinner seminars on important topics to Cuenca expats. Past seminars were full, so you’ll want to put these dates on your calendar. This year’s topics will include information on the documents every expat needs, new medical alternatives for expats, the Ecuador stock market, why Manta offers the best coastal living (and a free way to visit), and much more. Make sure to visit page ___ for calendar dates and locations.

Coming soon: Ecuador Connect. Want more in depth information about living in Ecuador? Ecuador Connection is a member’s only monthly VIP subscription streaming service, the perfect companion to Cuenca Expats Magazine. Whether you live in Ecuador or gathering information to do so, Ecuador Connection is the source. Watch for more information.

Best regards,
