what is a parcel of land (similar to an acre) called in Spaish?


Me and a friend were talking about property in Mexico. He told me an acre is not an acre there. He said a parcel of land was larger than an acre, but could not remeber the word for a single parcel (acre) of land was called. hope that helps. thanks

Hola Iza, it'sthat I have trouble with hectares (we use them in Can.) and I am always wondering what the heck is that in acres.... - margaretbl, JUL 16, 2010

I prefer acres to hectares but I must use hectares since our country changed over to metric. I have heard the term parcel of land but took it to mean any amount of land, not a certain measurement. I have 880 acres of land which I consider my parcel of land.

Maybe en hectáreas (in hectares). One hectare is a little bit less than two and a half acres.
