    A short walk from the point at Montanita up a gravel backroad to a lovely church and spectacular mirador overlooking Olon Beach.

    I took a taxi from Montinitas to this waterfall which is really more like a sort of park. A regular car got me their regular taxi that cost $13. This was in the summer not rainy season in rainy season. I’m told you would have to walk some ways as small little rivers, the Criss cross the road would be large rivers.

    Upon arriving there I paid $10 to a guy that walked me around, showed me all kinds of different trees and plants and was very knowledgeable. He then led me to the bottom of a small mountain or large hill and pointed me up a trail and said there was a good View of the valley from above. It was a very steep hike to say the least but doable. There’s some ropes to hold on to and if not grab anything you can to keep your balance going up and definitely you want to do the same coming down are used a stick. I found to slow my ascent at the top. There’s a pretty decent view. It’s just a dirt clearing area with a view of the valley, but it was worth it

    Coming back down I made my way over to the waterfall and natural pool, which was the best part of the little trip. All this area is very well preserved, and in a natural state it hadn’t rained much so the waterfall itself was pretty small. It led to a nice pool. The pool was about 20 or 30 feet across maybe 20 feet wide nice cool water about 15 feet deep at the deepest point , you could swim across it get under the waterfall and surprisingly the water coming down was pretty warm. Very pretty very nice. Well worth the 10 bucks.

    I was there alone, and in the park alone, which was great I’d recommend trying to get there in the morning or something to avoid the crowds as being alone was a great experience but again, the hike up and down to the viewpoint is a bit tough and definitely not for Someone with bad knees, or is older, or would have any problem on a very rustic steep trail

    There was no cellular service there, so I had the taxi come back in two hours, which really wasn’t quite enough time considering the hike up and down took me about 45 minutes. Going up at at least 30 coming down I would suggest three hours there at least.

    We (3 couples) came to Olon in Feb 2024. Outdoor Ecuador is fantastic. We had an incredible time in Ecuador with amazing surf, friendly locals, and amazing food. Olon is a lovely town that felt very safe and comfortable. Outdoor Ecuador is located in a nice area of town and the facilities are great. We found the people of Ecuador so lovely and welcoming. There was a wide array of surf breaks to choose from. The beach break in town is fun and then there are point breaks, other beach breaks and reef breaks north and south of town. I cannot recommend this place enough. Hope to be back soon

    Good time with Surf Report's team. The lesson was perfect and the waves in Olon are ideal for begginers.

    Vikara is a wonderful, relaxing and special place. Roey has created a lovely community - you arrive as a stranger & leave as family. The retreats are well run, professional and extremely well tailored to the person. Colas & Alika ensure a high level of professionalism and provide a safe and respectful environment. If you have an inclination at all or found this place by chance - i would def recommend booking it. The location is stunning, right on the beach and rooms are extremely clean and comfortable with a fab & AC. The food is super fresh and delicious I’ll def be babk & just go book this :)

    If you looking to rent a surfboard or want to do a surf lesson I would definitely recommend this place!!
    The staff is super friendly and can help you out with all your demands.
    They have all different kind of surfboards in good conditions and the prices are also good.
    They also have a surf shop so if you looking for wax, leashes or fins you can get them there.

    Amazing surf school! The teachers are great, it’s right at the beach and I’ve never felt so well taken care of before. I was a little scared to learn surfing, but with the great explanations of Orlando (who owns the school) I improved really quickly. It’s the perfect combination of theory and practice. Also he is funny, speaks English and makes you feel very welcome to the surf community. Worth every penny.
