National & Local Holidays in Ecuador

In Ecuador, there are many National & Local Days of Importance.
We try to give you a list of all of these, especially applicable to the Coastal Region & Olón. Pricing and Availability on these dates might be different than normal days.

Please contact us for details or see our Availability & Pricing on the different websites and booking platforms we use.Apart from these Holidays, there is a very specific Low-Season and a High-Season.

If you can visit us in the Low Season, please do so! Olón is of course extra happy to receive guests in those periods, temperatures are ideally moderate and it rain almost only at night. Olón has a lot to offer, especially for long stays! You will enjoy the added benefit of more privacy, tranquility and relaxation!
