Canoa, Ecuador

It was cloudy almost all the time, but on the last night we got one glorious sunset over the Pacific.
At spring low tide, it’s possible to access all three caves just north of Canoa town. We only managed to get to the first one after scrambling over the bluff.
There’s nothing quite like watching a child handle a kitten as if it were a stuffed animal. The cats have it good generally - lots of fresh fish, and barring the occasional dog snapping at them, plenty of safe space to roam. But when a small child gets them…
The weather wasn’t great - strong onshore wind and overcast all the time, for the entire 6 days. But, the excellent company and chilled hippy vibes more than made up for the poor weather conditions. I still managed to sneak in a few waves between the chop. The surfing would be amazing in the right season, miles of beachbreak in both directions. We stayed at the Coco Loco hostel, drank homemade fruity rum cocktails and ate all the ice creams and fresh seafood in town.
