Thru the Lens: Sunset in Canoa

Canoa is a chilled out surfing town about 7 hours west of Quito. It’s a great place to relax, surf, learn Spanish, do some yoga, and lay in a hammock. There is a bit of nightlife on weekends, but nothing compared to its more famous neighbor to the south, Montanita. There isn’t a lot to do in Canoa, but that’s probably what makes it so great!

Practical Info¬†There are no ATM’s in Canoa, the closest ones are 20 minutes away by bus. Dorm beds right on the beach start at $6 (Hostel Cocoloco). One of the cheapest places to eat in town is Jharlene’s (breakfast $2, lunch $2.5). The best surf boards for hire are at the internet cafe, $8/day.
