Canoa Beach on Ecuador’s Pacific Coast is the most underrated beach in Ecuador to Aracely and I. The wide flat sand beach stretches for miles with cliffs in the distance. Huts on the sand provide alcohol and music, while hostels on the street give backpackers a place to sleep and hang. Don’t miss this one!

The Gulf of Chiriquí is a part of Panama that encompasses Coiba National Park and Golfo de Chiriquí National Park.  There are dozens of islands in this Gulf.  We visited Gamez Island for a day in our own personal paradise of snorkeling, climbing and swimming.

During our sailing trip from Panama to Colombia, we spent 2 days exploring the San Blas islands in Panama’s Caribbean. The indigenous Kuna tribe inhabits the islands. Amazingly, they build huts such as these on the tiniest of islands. They navigate between each island in dugout canoes.
