Retreat location

The retreat center is located in Olon, a quiet coastal town of Ecuador, approximately 2.5 hours from Guayaquil’s (GYE) airport. Here you will find the perfect balance of restaurants, nature, and culture. You can be lucky enough to swim with dolphins, practice Spanish with the locals and walk the 7.6 km beach. Surf is year-round and the beach break is both friendly enough for beginners and challenging to more advanced surfers.

Distances

  • Guayaquil - 2 hours 30 minutes
  • Montanita, 5 kilometers
  • Puerto Lopez - 40 minutes

Olon

Upon arriving in Olon it is hard to not immediately become enchanted with its magic. Within its 10 streets, Olon has cafes, restaurants and farm stands where its villagers reunite and share their time. It is a perfect village to distance yourself from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

The true beauty of Olon is its nature. With its 7.6 km stretch of sandy beaches and stunning mountains, enjoy exploring our endless beach by foot or our jungle-like cloud forest on horseback.

Olon’s beach break boasts some of the best consistent beginner waves in the country, and its relaxed atmosphere will create the perfect escape needed on your retreat
