Probably the best place to enjoy the beach and the atmosphere of canoa. It survived the earthquake and some areas are in reconstruction. We were friendly welcomed and advised here, where the rooms are clean, the location perfect and the price very affordable. Go ahead!

Baloo is one dirt street away from the Ocean. The baloo has nice cabins. It is owned by a Brit. Very well taken care of with nice plants and flowers. You can get a nice breakfast there with a good cup of coffee in the little restaurant. It is a bit removed from the down town noise which is good.

Laid back, sound of waves, nice music at the bar, beach in front of the door, ventilators, inexpensive, mosquito nets. A really great place to chill for some days. You can get a cabin with kitchen if you want. Or one with terrace headed to the sea. You can get massages as well. And when you go straight to the...

Hash browns,bacon and eggs! Fresh brewed coffee! There is surf board rental available too and a nice lounging area with 6 hammocks. Steaks...

We arrived in Canoa at 5:30AM after a 9+ hour bus ride, and needless to say we were tired. We found Baloo after walking for 15 minutes, and although our reservation did not begin until that evening, amazingly they said our room was ready and checked us in. All of the staff were friendly and accommodating. The outdoor breakfast (additional...

I stayed for a few days in March. It is at the far south end of town and away from the noise. Canoa is only several blocks long, so it is easy and pleasant walking distance to restaurants, shops and such activities as exist there. The beer is good and cold at a reasonable price. The food is good and...

Hostal Baloo está ubicado en la playa de Canoa, algunas cuadras al sur de la bulla del pueblo. En lugar de discos, restaurantes, y mucha gente, hay arboles alrededor el Hostal Baloo, y se puede ver el mar que está como 25 metros del hostal. Tiene cabañas y habitaciones por muy buenos precios. También puedes comprar desayuno, almuerzo, y tienen...
