Thanks Daniele, I think you might be right. It seems like a Guayaquil squirrel. Thanks again for the suggestion

Thanks for your reply pirucreaciones! The Guayaquil Squirrel is not only found in Guayaquil; it is endemic to southwestern Ecuador and northwestern Peru. If you check the link in my suggestion you'll see it's found in the Provincia de Loja, where yours was also spotted.
