If you’re ever in Olon — wake up early, go to the beach…June 16, 2018
If you’re ever in Olon — wake up early, go to the beach and walk all the way to the cliff on the left. Climb the rocks, go to the outermost part and stare away into the sea. I believe there are few places in the world that can make you feel the peace this place does. It’s a place I always come back to. A multitude of food huts are available for you to taste Ecuador’s amazing seafood, as well as cocktails and beer. Don’t miss out on the patacones: an obligatory appetizer, and don’t forget to taste cold & fresh coconut water straight out of the fruit, which will suit you just right in Olon’s tropical weather. As the sun begins to set, lay down on the sand, watch the surfers ride the waves and a magic palette of colors appear in the sky. More than one source of music from the cocktail huts can be loud and annoying on the beach if you decide to spend your day close to the center of the town’s shoreline; which is why I’d recommend moving a little to the left — there’s less people and much less noise. But if for some reason you’re tired of peacefulness, Montañita (Ecuador’s party town) is just a 3 minute cab drive away.
