Diesel an Gasoline is readily available. Diesel $1.05 and Gasoline $1.85. Fresh Fruits, Meats, and Vegetables are available inexpensive and only a 5 minute walk to the Shopping Mall.
We have Moorings available and we have no lightening storms here in Ecuador Coastal area. Plenty of water, Hot showers, Gas refills, and very good maintenance workers.
Our moorings are $350 per month and the Anchorage is $180 per month. This includes 24 hour security patrols and dinghy dock plus use of the facilities here.
Zarpes are difficult to get from most countries so if you arrive without a Zarpe the local Port Captain has no issues and understands the problems. It is OK to arrive without Zarpefrom the country you have departed.
