beautiful jungle finca
Located 20 minutes outside of the small city of Zamora (about an hour and 45 minutes from Loja), this 18.5-acre finca features a fully operational fish farm with a 30,000 fish capacity, an endless protected and private water source, and plenty of space to grow food and graze cattle.
Situated off a well-maintained dirt road a few minutes outside of the town of Timbara (less than 2,500 inhabitants), with large flat sections, and water, this property offers tremendous agricultural opportunities.
Looking for self-sufficiency? A great space for permaculture?
This land is perfect.
The lower portions of the property surround the access road. The lower most boundary is the river. This section includes the pig raising facilities, bamboo, some banana and other fruit trees and a small house-like structure that could be converted into a storage shed or torn down to use the space for something else.
The road separates that portion from the largest flat area immediately above, which includes a livable house, the fishponds, some landscaping, and another small house-like structure.
As you ascend, there is another flat portion above, a great home site, with views.
Continuing upward you reach the old growth forest. The family who owns the property has never touched the forest because it functions as a watershed and is the source of their drinking water. These higher regions offer amazing views and a variety of nature only found in the jungle.
Scattered throughout the property are mature banana, orange, waba, mandarin, zapote, and yaraso fruit trees. Situated off a well-maintained dirt road a few minutes outside of the town of Timbara (less than 2,500 inhabitants), with large flat sections, and water, this property offers tremendous agricultural opportunities.
The area is known for its bio-diversity, bird watching, waterfalls, and other nature related activities. Many indigenous reside throughout this sparsely populated region.
