43 Free photos of Puyo in Pastaza Province, Ecuador

Pastaza is a province in the Orient of Ecuador located in the eastern jungle. The capital is Puyo, founded on May 12, 1899 and boasts 25,800 inhabitants. The city is now accessible by paved roads, a recent development, and the road follows the Pastaza river into the province. The Pastaza River surges into the province from the west and as the landscape flattens, meanders on to the Napo, a tributary of the mighty Amazon. Natural resources of Pastaza are bananas, grapefruit, tobacco, cocoa and coffee. Tea has successfully been cultivated by a few British companies, and in the mid eighties one of the companies was honored by a visit from Princess Margaret from the royal family of Britain. The landscape is mostly mountainous in the western part of the province and becomes relatively flat toward the east as it nears the Peruvian border with rivers and plains characterizing most of the province. The highest elevation is 1,820 meters (5,970 ft). The climate is warm and humid due to the almost 7 meters of annual rainfall (22 feet)in the parts closest to the western mountains, but with significant amounts of rainfall throughout the province. The median temperature is 18 to 24 degrees Celsius. It is rumored that there is a lot of gold in the rivers of Pastaza, however, to date no significant discoveries of gold have been reported. Snakes and other poisonous creatures, such as tarantulas and scorpions, are common in the province and travellers are advised to be cautious in any trekking through the jungles, parks and trails, some that are under development and some well established. Some of the snakes blend extremely well even in trees, so walking sticks for hiking and/or machetes are a good precaution. The flora of the region is absolutely spectacular. A few local parks have been developed with myriad natural orchids from the area and admittance to these parks is relatively inexpensive. Rainy day gear is advised since the rains are present almost year round, many times in the late afternoon, but occasional all day rains as well. The rain is quite warm compared to the north American experience. Pastaza is the largest province in Ecuador and the richest in biodiversity. To the north of Pastaza are the provinces Napo and Orellana, to the south is Morona Santiago, to the east is the country of Peru, and to the west are the provinces Tungurahua and Moronga Santiago. The total population is about 62,110 inhabitants. The province is divided into 4 cantons.
