electrolytic caps can achieve higher capacities
electrolytic caps have polarity (+,-)

Ceramic are more accurate
Ceramic are smaller
Ceramic can work in higher frequencies

Also, electrolytic capacitors cannot have small capacitance, ceramic can in a very accurate way.

Ceramic capacitors are more stable in temperature changes.

Ceramic caps are smaller
