Canoa is a city in Ecuador, and also a kind of boat (canoe), this post is about the city, not the boat. Even though most tourists go to Canoa for surfing, for us it was a quiet little beach town where we could relax except for the fact that we couldn’t really relax at all because it wasn’t quiet at all, there was loud music, trucks, and cars honking, people shouting and fighting, dogs…"Things to do in Canoa, Ecuador"
