"Canoa" Canoa by MalenaN
Canoa Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 56 photos
There are around 6100 inhabitants in Canoa, of whom many work with fishing and tourism. There is a long sandy beach in front of the village where you can take relaxed walks, swim and surf. At the rocks in the north end of the beach there are caves where you can see bats. Along the beach there are many hostels/hotels, bars and restaurants, restaurants serving fresh seafood. Canoa is still a quiet and relaxed place, but it gets more crowded during weekends and high season.
During high season there are International surf competitions in Canoa. It is also a good place for new beginners to take lessons. Besides taking surf lessons there are many things you can do in and around Canoa, you can go horseback riding, paragliding, visit an organic farm or Isla Corazon. You can also take Spanish classes or dance lessons.
As the rest of the Ecuadorian coast there is a wet season and a dry season in Canoa. During the wet season, December – May, there can be daily downpours, but between the rains it is often sunny with blue sky. June – November is the dry season with very little rain. It becomes colder during the dry season, both on land and in sea, and it is mostly overcast.
