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. Swim with dolphins, practice Spanish with the locals and walk the 7.6 kilometers 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 unite and share their energy. 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 kilmeters stretch of sandy beaches and stunning mountains, enjoy exploring our endless beach by foot or our jungle-like cloud forest on horseback. Fall asleep to the sound of the waves.

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.

Food

As Hippocrates said, “let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” During the retreat, we view our bodies as gifts and show our gratitude by fueling them with only the highest vibration foods. Fresh fruit and veggies highlight every meal, balanced with lean proteins, healthy fats, and nutritious grains.

While we don’t subscribe to a particular dietary regimen, we do take care to eliminate processed and highly inflammatory foods, such as sugar, most dairy, red meat and pork, some oils, and alcohol. Instead, we nourish our bodies with healthy, mainly plant-based, culinary art. Vikara Lifestyle is happy to accommodate you if you have a special dietary requirement(s) as well.

The following meals are included:

  • Breakfast
  • Lunch

The following drinks are included:

  • Water
