    Right on the Ocean, But noisy in high season


    We stayed there for carnival thinking it would have been nice to stay in a upscale hotel right on the beach. Big mistake, this is where all the cars blast loud music till 4am on the Boardwalk although the staff did not speak any English and were not very friendly , they did return the rest of our deposit for the weekend as we checked out the next day. and found a better much quieter place to spend the Holidays in Bahia de Caraquez. Live and learn...

    Unique Quality: Right on the beach! this is the only place between Bahia and Canoa that is actually on the beach, although Bahia is surrounded by beaches,

    Directions: Near the top of the peninsula on the Boardwalk.

I was wondering if ayone had heard of Gensis Volunteer Program. I have found their web page and it sounds interesting but would like to hear from people who have been there to see if it is as they represent it.

Volunteers from all over the world come to the pleasant coastal town of Bahia de Caraquez, Ecuador to teach English to children.

The web page is:

Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Travel Tips for Bahía de Caráquez

A week in Baiha

by retired_poppi

"Clean, safe, freindly, charming"

Baiha is beautiful town with a great promanade on the ocean. In contrast to the big city of Guayaquil, there are no armed security guards visible untill you go to the bank. The police presence on the streets is minimal.

"Dull, predictable"

There appears to be only one disco. There is no movie theater. Things get very quiet on weeknights. At sunset, the teenagers cruise the Malacon on motor scooters, ATVs, or in cars. No one drives fast. There are no loud exxhaust noises or boom boxes, just people enjoying seeing eachother.

An artistic city... Une ville artistique

by Maillekeul

Except enjoying the sun in this small beach resort, there is not much to do : so, go to the Museum !

A part profiter du soleil dans cette petite station balneaire, il n'y a pas grand chose a faire : alors, allez au musee !
