This is a great place to stay. They have a really laid back hostel with nice rooms and a fun bar with good food. What makes this hostel is the owners, they are really friendly and helpful and can arrange all sorts of activities including Surfing, biking, and Paragliding. They know the area really well and are a wealth of information.
Just a few blocks from the beach behind Coco Loco is Cafe Flor. For me this was my favorite place to eat in Canoa. It is a little family run cafe that serves really good home cooked style food their breakfasts are great with heaps of fresh fruit.
While in Canoa try the Paragliding. It is run by an certified American guy who takes you up for a tamdam flight about $30. This has to be one of the best ways to get a sunset view of Canoa. You can find him at Hostel Coco Loco. For those who wish to stay longer you can gain you pilots license in about 3 weeks....
The surf is not world class in Canoa but it has great waves for learners and the water is always warm. Many places rent boards and you can find an instructor in town for lessons. We used Mark at Coco Loco and English guy, $10 per hour.
- Pros:Beach, Cheap, Laid back, Surfing, Coco Loco, Paragliding
- Cons:None really!
- In a nutshell:Chilled out little beach town that has not been spoilt by tourism.
