Two months at Playa Dorada doesn’t seem quite long enough. With the compound having direct access to the beach we enjoyed two hour walks daily while collecting many seashells. We were fortunate to see dolphins swim by, thousands of butterflies, frigate birds, saffron finches, brown pelicans and many other birds. The ocean is relatively calm allowing for swimming or an attempt at surfing.
The second floor condo is well supplied with everything we needed to make meals. The only thing we bought on day 2 was bedroom pillows as the condo’s pillows are in immediate need of replacement. We also made a makeshift curtain for the bedroom after learning the specially treated windows keep the sun and heat out during the day but allow anyone in the pool or on the beach at night to see straight into the bedroom at night if the light is on.
Although Playa Dorada is 12 km from San Vincente and 4 km to Canoa there is no need for a rental car as the buses run regularly throughout the day and taxis are inexpensive. Catching a bus is as easy as raising your arm outside the condo and paying 0.50 if you are <65(.25 if you are >65). If you want to shop at a large grocery store in Bahia take the bus for $1.00 and then taxi back for $8.00. A bus trip to Manta is $3.00 or a $45.00 taxi ride.
If you are traveling to Ecuador expect to communicate in Spanish as very few people speak English. There is a small expat community of Canadians and Americans living around Canoa. Drop into The Surf Shack on Tuesday nights to play trivia and meet some people.
We look forward to returning to Ecuador.
Thank you Evelyn & David for being terrific guests! And thanks for the heads up on the pillows, nobody mentioned them before so of course, they will be replaced promptly!
We are glad to hear about all the things you enjoyed in the area and that your stay was comfortable.
Hope to have you back one day to our "piece of paradise"!
Immaculate two Br condo right on beach just south of Canoa . Safe and secure Would stay again
Peggy was always responsive. Every thing you need for wonderful getaway at your fingertips. Spectacularly beautiful setting. Canoa is a fun town.
Thanks Jim & Sandra,
We are so glad you enjoyed out "piece of paradise"! We agree the setting is amazing and we are pleased that you found our condo to be immaculate as it is one of our primary goals.
Security is always a question from potential renters so I'm happy to hear that you felt very safe and secure as all of our guests do..
While this can be a very relaxing vacation spot, having Canoa so near does provide lots of diversions and is a fun little spot without actually having to live in the town.
You are welcome to come back anytime!
Our condo was amazing, clean and very well equipped
Loved it, such beautiful surroundings. You can take a local bus and venture out to see the local sights, meet the people. If you like you can horseback ride on the beach, there are tours available to go on. I would definitely come back to this piece of paradise
We are so glad you enjoyed your visit to Ecuador and our "piece of paradise". Glad you ventured out of your comfort zone, used the detailed instructions and discovered how easy, convenient and cost effective the buses are! I know you enjoyed walking the beach, having meals on the balcony and watching our amazing sunsets, among other things. You and Rose are welcome anytime for a future vacation.
Beach front condo Canoa
Very nice condo. Six units there. Everyone was friendly. Beautiful beach. Great swimming pool. Owners promptly to any questions, and very helpful. Busses were easy to take. Fifty cents to Canoa or San Vicentes. Had great lunches at La Esquina del Capitan at the round about in San Vincentes. Fish, rice, beans, avacado and juice $2.50. Samia the manager was great. Took care of anything that was needed. Only drawback was no place for snorkeling close.
It was great to have you stay in our "piece of paradise". Our property manager is great isn't she and people appreciate the little extras like providing coffee, bread and eggs for the first morning breakfast and lots of spices and necessities for cooking.
We also appreciate the ease of using the buses and the very tasty, inexpensive meals.
The snorkeling might not be the best but I hear the surfing and boogie boarding are great! Hope to see you again! Peggy
Amazing beach and property
This property and beach are amazing. We were here for a three month stay and had a wonderful vacation. The condo was very well appointed, had everything we needed for our stay. We enjoyed the gardens and the pool and the beach was incredible; sandy and you can walk forever. The owner and property manager were very accommodating. We would not hesitate to recommend this property to a friend or relative.
Hi Janice & Kevin,
It was a delight to have you spend your vacation in our beachfront condo. When I am not at the condo, I particularly miss the beautiful sunsets and swimming in the infinity pool every day. I totally agree that the beach is amazing, very quiet and the walk into Canoa for breakfast, lunch or dinner is beautiful!
We look forward to having you back when you return to Ecuador!
What an incredible view ! The condo had everything we needed to make ourselves at home. Perfect for lounging by the pool, and walking for miles down the beach! Safe and secure location, and the three nearby towns were an affordable taxi ride away! Highly recommend!
We are so glad you enjoyed your time at our "piece of paradise". I know you had a very full and busy month in Ecuador and this was a relaxing break. Hope to see you again in Ecuador!
Busserne kører ca hvert 20. minut går nord og syd for Playa Dorada. Taxier er meget billige - bare bekræfte prisen før du få i.
Den populære surfing by Canoa er ca 5 km nord for Playa Dorada hvor du vil finde mange hoteller og restauranter og masser af amerikansk stil fødevarer herunder hamburgere, pommes frites, løgringe og pizza. Den største bang for din sorteper er de ecuadorianske frokoster for omkring $ 2. 50, som omfatter kød, fisk eller skaldyr, ris, linser, frisk juice og suppe.
Går videre nordpå omkring 45 minutter, vil du finde Jama og den lille autentiske fiskerby El Matal.
Syd for vores Playa Dorada Condo, ca 12 km er San Vicente. Det lokale marked vil give dig alle de friske grøntsager, du kunne forestille for exceptionelt lav pris. Vi elsker at fange bussen i San Vicente til morgenmad af Encobollada (tun & løg suppe), en utroligt fantastisk måde at starte dagen.
Den længste bro i Ecuador nu forbinder San Vicente til Bahia de Caraquez og bringer bedre infrastruktur til San Vicente. Vi forventer den lokale lufthavn vil snart servicering fly fra den internationale lufthavn i Quito. Bahia er Eco City of Ecuador, har brolagte gader, fantastiske restauranter og har et stort expat samfund.
Manta er længere sydpå, og på dette tidspunkt er den nærmeste indenrigslufthavn. Manta er en stor industriby med en udskibningshavn og fiskerflåden. Det kan prale indkøbscentre og en meget god amerikansk ejede slagterforretning.
