recommended CanoaThe great thing about Ecuador's mainland beaches is that you can still find special spots like Canoa that cater to adventurous beach travelers, but yet are completely undeveloped in a tourism sense. ... read moreCanoa is truly a backwater fishing village with a spectacular beach and few tiki hut bungalows where you can truly escape the modern world.

No place in Bahia is too expensive. The town was well developed in the early 90's, but after a major earthquake and global economic crises, it just never met the potential it was striving for. If you have some flexibility, I prefer staying just a 20 min drive upcoast in Canoa. There you can get a bungalow on a wide sandy beach, and have the whole of the Pacific and her sunshine at your disposal. Bahia is nice too, but it's a town built like a city, so it has an urban feel to it, whereas Canoa is sand and country roads...
