Annual average low/high temps are around 20C/70F to 28C/84F. Mix of sun, partial sun, cloud, rain, changing up frequently. Wet season Feb – July, dry season August – January. Some wind, not extreme. Very few serious storms, except for a major (still relatively mild) windstorm once every few years. No major earthquake risk in this area, no flooding, no forest fires, no tornadoes. Annual rainfall ~1800mm / 71 inches. Humidity is medium but constant; less humid than, for example, most of the US in the height of summer.


The property is in a rural area 50 minutes south of Gualaquiza, on the new gravel road from Proveeduría to Las Peñas. The gravel road is somewhat bumpy.

There is public transportation 2 times a day via bus, from the nearby village Shiram Entsa. A private taxi ride out to the property costs around $20, from either Gualaquiza or El Pangui to the south.


The owner is selling 2 farms, he will only sell them both at the same time. He has given us varying prices depending on his mood, but should settle for $3k per hectare.
One person could purchase both farms, divide off several parts and sell them. Or 2 people could each purchase one of them, and do the same thing.
