Only one degree south of the equator and situated at 4,500 ft (1,372 m) above sea level, we delight in a consistent “eternal spring” climate; sunny pleasant days averaging 80 degrees (26.6C), often rain showers mid-late afternoons, and cool in the evenings (bring your hoodie). In other words, PERFECT for humans, flora, and fauna alike! No wonder this place is alive with abundant beauty
