It was a great experience, we had the 5 days Spanish and surfer package. I feel like we learned a lot of the key words to function as a traveller. The surfing was fun and we are definitely going to try surfing again.

I rented surfboards for a week while I was in Olon. Their boards were in great shape and their service was outstanding.

So I don't usually write reviews, but I will make an exception for this great Spanish school in Olon. I spend 4 weeks there learning Spanish and surfing at the same time and couldn't be happier about my time there. All the people working at outdoor Ecuador are absolutely lovely and helpful in all regards and made this time truly special. You can personalize the lessons according to your needs, the school itself looks really cool and has a nice and relaxed chill area to hang out before or in between the lessons, they usually have fruits there and always a great atmosphere. Furthermore they'll help you with all your surfing needs, which I can just recommend trying while in olon.
I very much enjoyed the quiet and relaxed vibe of olon but for the people who want more action, Montañita is just a short bus or taxi ride (~1,50$) from olon and offers partys pretty much all week long.
So all in all can just recommend this place, if you want to learn Spanish and or surfing!

My girlfriend and I spend two weeks at this amazing place surfing and learning Spanish with the most kind & professional teachers that made school more fun than it has ever been!

The whole staff made an effort that was way beyond the expected. They helped us with accomodation, advise and planning for weekend trips, renting of surf gear, motorcycles, etc.

So if you’re looking for a chilled and social environment to pick up or practice your Spanish and surf, we would highly recommend you Outdoor Ecuador!

Also, Olón is a really nice little sleepy town with a relaxed local atmosphere just perfect for a longtime stay.

I recently spent 5 weeks studying spanish (1 on 1 classes) with Outdoor Ecuador. Every part of their operation gets 5 stars. The organization, friendliness and hospitality from reception and management, the teachers and their passion in what they do in wanting to see you succeed, the program and teaching styles, the open air ambiance of the school itself....I couldn't have asked for a better experience. If you're planning to spend time in this region of coastal Ecuador and would like to study some spanish along the way, this is 100% the place to do it.

Outdoor Ecuador is a fantastic group. I stayed twice in the last two years, most recently in Jan of 2022. Ocean Blue Lodge is immaculate and the owner
Elizabeth is wonderful and so friendly, always smiling and cleaning! It is steps from the beach and close to many places to eat. I took surfing lessons with David and he was excellent, spoke excellent English and I was exhausted but so proud of myself by the end of the lesson!.I would not consider staying anywhere else and I enjoyed feeling like I was in someone's home instead of a touristy chain hotel. My son lived in the area for several months and took spanish lessons and was very happy with his teachers.

Outdoor Ecuador is the best! We had such a wonderful experience with both Spanish lessons and surf lessons. Teacher Luis was very knowledgeable and his teaching style is full immersion and super friendly.
I would definitely recommend this place to everyone. Everything was impeccable!

My husband had Spanish classes the last couple weeks here. He has some ambulatory issues and they were great accommodating his needs. He enjoyed the lessons very much! Both the instructors he had were excellent. Also, we needed to go to the medical clinic and someone from the school came along to interpret for us. Helped us with any questions we had regarding our stay in Olon. I would have been lost without them! They helped me set up our covid tests to return home. Wonderful school with wonderful people. Prices are great too.

First thing that comes to mind is "WOW"!!

Outdoor Ecuador is hands down the best Spanish school you could ask for. I'm apprehensive even calling it a spanish school because it is that and so much more. In addition to being an unparalleled place to learn spanish they also teach surfing, have social functions and though not my activity...Yoga too!

Karen & Luis greeted me with the brightest most welcoming smiles each time I walked through the door. Though don't let those smiles fool you because when it comes to spanish lessons they are as professional as it comes. They both teach in a way that makes you feel comfortable with whatever level you're at. I not only would recommend this school but I'd suggest you actively search this place out. Get yourself to Outdoor Ecuador in Olon, immerse yourself in the wonderful welcoming town and leave with so much more than a new language, leave with new friends.
