The Tembladora silos
As far back at 1917 and into the 1960s, the company was operating freighter cruise sailing from the US to the islands, first called the Aluminium Line, later to be known as Alcoa Caribbean, with ships retrofitted for the purpose, and tickets going at $395 for an 18-day round trip.

Meanwhile, the company expanded as the technology improved, and the use of aluminium increased. And as the world moved towards the second war of the century, Alcoa's factories, building components for fighter aircraft and naval vessels, became essential to America's war machinery. And the bauxite, which moved by freighter to the smelters in the United States, needed to be defended against German U-Boat (submarine) attacks.

Bands of red howler monkeys as well as white-fronted capuchins make Ecclesville their home grounds because the community does not trouble them. There are forest fruits immediately around the village and these provide a year round supply of food according to the season of each.

Members of the community are also fiercely protective of these primates. They do not allow anyone to come in and poach them and they are hesitant to show visitors the exact location where they are.
