Ancient Trees, Fantastic Views, and Mostly Flat Land
In a desired location near the base of Mandango mountain in Vilcabamba, sits this lovely 6,254 square meter (1.5 acre) piece of land. Over half of the lot is flat, which is ideal for building, and the rest is sloped so you will be able to plant orchard trees or create terraced gardens.
The views are incredible and in the distance you can spot the neighboring small town of San Pedro. Looking above, you can see the ridges of Mandango mountain. Imagine building your dream home that maximizes these spectacular views!
Because this property is a little outside of town, you are not bothered by traffic noise and can simply enjoy the sounds of leaves brushing in the wind and birds chirping in the many trees on this property.
Speaking of trees, there are ancient flowering ceibo trees on this land. These trees are unique with pointed tips around the trunk and they are not commonly seen around the area. At the lower part of the property there is a natural forest area, providing a great habitat for birds and Ecuadorian squirrels.
An interesting fact to know since this property is located at the base of Mandango mountain is that Mandango is said to be the sleeping Incan giant who is watching over the inhabitants of the valley. From across the valley spectators can see the profile of a “sleeping face” at the peak of the mountain.
Water and electricity just need to be hooked up which will be easy since there are nearby houses.
