Esmeraldas the green province

The Esmeraldas province is called the "green province" for the incredible plant-life of the forests.

These precious stones probably originated from trade or wars with other groups from different sectors.

The population is predominantly of black race. Originating from slaves that were brought in a ship from Panama in 1553.
