Olon is a peaceful little town 3 km (1.5 miles) North of Montanita, 183 km (113 miles) from Guayaquil. It is a 2 ½-3 hour drive by car/private transport or 3 ½ hours on the comfortable, air-conditioned express bus ride from Guayaquil international airport. The express bus terminal is 1/2 mile from Guayaquil Int’l airport (Taxi from Airport to Bus Terminal costs approximately $4.00). Olón is a quiet fishing village surrounded by a lengthy beautiful beach. A superb Sanctuary built on top of a cliff overlooks the sea and surrounding areas. Along the beach of Olón are a number of outdoor cabanita-style “restaurants” that offer heaping plates of daily fresh seafood prepared to your request (along with generous amounts of rice and fried plantains) and large beer for less than $5.00. Or if you desire, wait for the night fishing boats to return with their haul of 9” prawns to grill on your own barbie.
You can always stay in and enjoy breakfast on the balcony, watch whales when they come through, and watch the sunset over dinner! Concierge service is provided by our care-taker who can arrange tours and various activities such as surfing lessons, kayaking, scuba diving, horseback riding, sport fishing, canopy tour and shopping trips.
There are two small convenient stores in Olon and two fresh produce huts offering a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. Fresh-caught fish is sold on the beach. Taxis are on call day and night, offering low rates. Olon also has an internet café 3 blocks from the house.
