During this retreat, you will be staying at Canoa Suites. Their accommodations are first class. Every room is a suite that includes a full kitchen, air conditioning, hot water, and stunning views. Wi-Fi is available anywhere on the property. They also have a great outdoor kitchen with a lot of seating, board games, micro brews on tap, as well as yard games.

The accommodations lend to the ease of a family vacation combined with the surf camp. If only one or two people want to actually participate in the camp, the rest of the family will have plenty to do on the grounds and in the surrounding area.

There are two options of accommodation available:

North and South suites (two people per unit)

Located on the west side of the property with an unimpeded view of the ocean. The North and South suites are situated as a side-by-side duplex (perfect for two couples traveling together). The studio suites each include a queen bed, large bathroom with walk-in shower, and a fully equipped kitchen.

The loft (six people maximum)

The loft is a second-story suite with an amazing wraparound balcony to enjoy the Pacific sunset. The Loft has a master bedroom and third story for additional guests or children. It is the biggest of the suites and is an amazing place for entertaining larger groups.

Program

There are seven surfing classes plus more informal surfing sessions. You will have one lesson daily with an optional second surf session with instructors. All of the instructors are English speakers and have years of experience surfing and teaching surf lessons right here in Canoa. Equipment is included for beginners and intermediate surfers, as well as long boards and fun boards are available.

The waves in Canoa are about as friendly as it gets.

Things to do (optional)

Ecuadorian cooking classes

One of the most amazing things about Ecuador is the delicious food. Most of the produce in Canoa is local, purchased at local markets. Unique dishes like shrimp ceviche, fish encocado, encebollado, and other treats you will learn to make and be able to enjoy in your home for years to come. The classes are held in the outdoor kitchen and are a favorite activity among the guests.

La Florida pre-Columbian tour

Just around the point of Canoa is a very magical spot. The pre-Columbian natives known as the Jama Coaque, inhabited this area and they left their mark. They carved fish corrals out of the stone in the ocean along the beach. When the tide comes in the stones are submerged and the fish come in with the tide. As the tide recedes, the water goes out and exposes the rocks and traps the fish in the tide pools. It is an impressive archeological site.

The corrals also make a great swimming spot as the waves are blocked by the rocks. There are miles of beach to comb and explore in seclusion. A freshwater spring falls off the cliffs, so you can wash off after a dip in the ocean. Traveling through the primary forest to get to the ocean, howler monkeys can be seen at leisure in the trees. In the right season, the humpback whales are seen jumping in the water right from shore. It is a great way to spend an afternoon.

Painting classes

Moya Foley is the resident artist and she offers a wide variety of painting classes and courses. She has been in Ecuador since the 1980s and has painted many of the breathtaking landscapes over the years. Her classes are held at her home studio and she offers a number of mediums to students.

Paragliding

Canoa features one of the best flying sites in the country. Yearly hang gliding and paragliding competitions are held here and Canoa is a favorite spot for international pilots. The flying season is from June to December on the coast. Canoa Suites offers tandem paragliding as well. Taking off from the cliffs with your pilot and float over the Pacific and land right on the beach in front of the hotel, it's an unforgettable experience.

Rio Canoa Farm tour or hike

Located just behind Canoa is Rio Canoa, a small farming community. Canoa Suites offers tours to a 50-acre hobby farm located just minutes from the hotel. With toucans and parrots flying around it is an excellent spot for bird watching and photography.

There are hiking trails cut into the dry tropical rain forest that is extremely endangered in the area. The farm features some of the only intact primary forest in the area. Hike through the farm and collect avocados, limes, oranges, grapefruit, banana, cacao, plantains, and even coffee to bring back to the hotel.

Spanish lessons

Canoa Suites' bilingual instructors are here to help you jump into the language. They offer custom classes based on your ability and goals. Whether it's a brush up on "travel Spanish", advanced lessons, or a Spanish class field trip to the market, there is something for everyone.
