There is plenty of room to plant whatever your heart desires or just enjoy this property as it is and stay busy harvesting the bounty. 


*Owners Note: This is a great area for growing balsa, a very high profit possibility here that would produce an average of more than $12,000 per year on a half hectare, easily available here on open space. Harvest can be in about 4 years, netting over $48,000 per half hectare. You could choose to grow for much longer before harvest. It is so under-supplied now thatChinese company representatives have been guaranteeing up to $100 per tree at four years. 500 trees per half hectare can be planted. 75% of the worlds balsa comes from Ecuador. That possible 12k per year income from balsa is in addition to any other
farm income, most of which has come from the mangoes in February. With proper management and crop choices, this can be a very productive small farm.


This property is located just a 20 min drive north of the spectacular sand and surfing beaches of Canoa and is a three-minute walk to the nearest shop for basic supplies. A renowned organic farm and ecolodge is within a few minutes drive. Medical facilities and a major shopping center is 40 minutes from the property.
