How to get to the farm

This post is also available in: Français (French)

There are several ways to get here including taxi from Canoa or from the main airports and bus. We are 15km away from Canoa, the nearest beachtown.

Also, we use this link to get in and out of Canoa within Latin America : or but if needed, we can help you with updated details on the bus schedules.

Taxi: 6-10$ ride from Canoa, depending if you wish to go up the hill or not. Tell the driver that you’re going to Tabuchila Arriba, la Finca Pinguino, finca del Gringo Simon.

Taxi from the main airports : We can arrange safe transportion (space for 4 people and big luggage) from the three main airports:

Manta- 60$

Guayaquil- 155$

Quito- 200$

Bus: 0,75$ and ask to stop at the entrance of Tabuchila “al kilometro 29”. The ride is more or less 10 min. Then, there is a 45min to a 1h30 walk (4 km inland) depending on your walking pace. You can easily ask a ride to whichever car goes in your direction, they will drop you as far as they go. During your walk ask where is “La Finca del Gringo Simon, Tabuchila Arriba, vecino de la casa de Patricio Figueroa”.

The Pinguino mobile: We go in town 2-3 times a week. We can bring you guys for 7$ all the way up to the farm (during dry season and down the hill during wet season).
