Those lands that, centuries back have demonstrated their fondness for sustainable agriculture and whose lack of water relegated to waste, form part of the tropical dry forest where the sheets alternate with soft hills that don't go over the height of 350 meters. They have ruled the ancient ceiba trees, the precious woods such as the guayacan, laurel, guachapeli and guasango, along with the algarrobo, palosanto, guabos and ciruelos that during the dry station, lose foliage and barely make it to the winter rains. They get covered with intense green that attracts flocks of birds that are eager to start a new life cycle.
Thanks to the opening of the complementary irrigation canals of the Daul-Peripa dam, for approximately a decade, about 30 minutes away from Guayaquil, a kind of extrication of nature is producing itself, which can be appreciated in the ranches located on the coast of the route towards the beach, precisely in the rural area of parroquia Chongón, El Consuelo, Cerecita and elsewhere, where the cultivation of hortalizes, fruits and short-cycle products increase incessantly. With which small producers and proprietary's have been able to improve the present and think of a promising future rebuilding the lost tropical forest.
