Issue #015, December 26th 2012

Our year in Ecuador is ending with a SPLASH! My parents were just here for three weeks, so we spent a week traveling around a bit.

First up was Mindo. Perfect weather and beautiful scenery. But I will write more about that very soon...

Next, we headed to the coast. After so many years in Ecuador it's really quite sad the amount of time I've spent on the beach, which is zero to none. Guayaquil doesn't count!

We went to Canoa, which is a quiet, little town popular with surfers. The best waves haven't quite hit yet, but it was perfect for us.

Canoa Beach Hotel

We stayed in the brand new Canoa Beach Hotel. It was clean, beautiful, quiet, and right on the beach. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.

Each morning we walked out to see the ocean, and spent most of our time in Canoa either in the pool or ocean. The hotel was just a quick walk to the center of town, where we enjoyed awesome seafood pulled fresh from the water.

Read more about the hotel and see my photos here.

I will be writing more about our trip to Canoa. And next about Mindo. It was a great way to end the year.

On our way back to Tena the Tungurahua Volcano started spewing ash...again. We had a perfect view as we drove through. Check out my photo on Facebook.

Until next time...
