Annual average low/high temps are around 18C/65F 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 remote rural area 30 minutes south of Gualaquiza, and 15 minutes north of El Pangui, on the private road that goes through nearby Fruit Haven Ecovillage community lands. The location is ideal for people who want to be far from the zombie hordes. The private road is controlled by its landowners, and the landowners (of Fruit Haven) keep a strong emphasis on security (as will the landowners of Liberty Homesteads.)

You can reach this property via 5 minutes of ATV or motorcycle after crossing the hanging bridge in Chuchumbleza, which is a 1.5 meters wide metal-decked bridge. There is a parking area on the other side of the bridge where you can get a taxi, or walk out to the main road to catch a bus.

Closing Costs

Closing costs will be $1500 if the property has not been converted to an SAS, and $600 if it has.
