About this property

Accommodations
Casa Verde - This is the main rental for Lourdes, owner of the famous Lourdes Place Bar and Grill and surfboard rentals. Casa Verde is a large two story home that can be rented as a whole or each floor individually. Top and bottom floors have the same layout just different views. Both units have 2 queen size beds and 2 bathrooms. The entire floorplan is open though so if you plan to split with another couple please note there isn't much privacy between beds or bathrooms. If privacy is key, rent both the top and bottom together.

Both units also have a kitchen and share a large outdoor pool.

Rates (*Five night minimum*)
$100/night for 1 floor

$200/night for entire house

Lourdes’ Place cantina and surf shop, steps away, is the hub of the Saladita scene.
Everyone shows up at Lourdes’s, from former world champ Corky Carroll and his surf chum from the old days, Tim Dorsey, both of whom live down the beach, to various other surf legends, like frequent visitor Linda Benson, to various viajeros passing through.

Surfing at Saladita
Saladita Point has often been called a ‘mirror Malibu’ and that’s accurate. A long peeling left point break, especially good for longboards. There are other waves in the area, most notably The Ranch -  a totally undeveloped area with a great break just a few miles down the coast to the south. Classic A-frame, lefts and rights, usually a bit bigger and rounder than Saladita.

If you’re a beginner or have never surfed at all and want to learn, Saladita is ideal. As I say, there are always waves; when it’s too big you just move down the cove until the size fits your ability level. Lourdes has board rentals to fit any need and can set you up with an instructor. Even if you don't stay at Lourdes you can rent boards from her. Save yourself an expensive surfboard ariline charge and just rent a surfboard in Saladita!

Surf

This property is located near La Saladita. La Saladita, aka the Wave Machine, is an exposed reef/point break that has consistent surf and is usually rideable year round. SW swells are ideal for this loooong left. A goofy foot longboarders dream, Saladita surf sessions offer long rides, good vibes and beautiful surroundings.

This property is also located near Troncones Point. A truly great left hand point that can break for long rides up to 200 meters offering big fast walls for the intermediate surfer. The bottom is rocky with occasional urchins on the inside so watch your step. Check the conditions from your hammock at one of the surf front homes. All in all this is a goofy foot paradise!

Breaks Surfed: Troncones Point, Troncones Beach Break, La Saladita
Favorite Break: Saladita
Wave/Swell Conditions: Waist to chest high, clean

Thoughts I want to pass on:

I stayed in the Green House (La Casa Verde) at Lourdes place for one night.  The location is tough to beat. Literally walk out the door, across the sand and you're paddling out to the point break. The upstairs of the house was very spacious with 2 bedrooms, living area, kitchen and two baths. The entire place was open, even the bathrooms only had a partial wall so it's not exactly the most private place. For a family or close friends though it would be fine. Also I was there during the hot and rainy season and it was hot and rainy. There was a huge storm the night I stayed and we had no power so it was a night of sleeping on top of the sheets trying to keep cool. With the fans going (once the power returned) it was fine. There is also a kitchenette and pool but I didn't get a chance to try them out. If you need a budget accommodation for a group of 4 as close to the waves as possible, this is one of the better options in Saladita. It's not upscale, but that's probably not whey you're here anyway. There are some really nice homes at Saladita but they are a further walk from the surf, about 5-10 minutes vs. 30 seconds for Lourdes Place.

La Casa Verde is awesome! The house is airy and cool, with an open plan and enclosed in a private garden. It is the only house on the point. Great pool, and green grass yard. Various places to relax. We loved it. Staying with Lourdes, and her family has many advantages. Great food at her restaurant, and all the surfing essentials.

This is a very comfortable, no-nonsense location and a great place to relax and get some serious wave time. Lourdes and her family are the friendliest people you will meet in Mexico and your stay will feel like you are at home.

Breaks Surfed: La Saladita
Favorite Break: La Saladita
Wave/Swell Conditions: Fine for us - we are beginners but there were a lot of more expert surfers in the water and they seemed to be enjoying themselves.

Thoughts I want to pass on:

Water shoes or booties are a must. We found some old ones by Lourdes Bar and Grill but if we hadn't it would have been a bummer because of the rocky shore.

US dollars are not at all necessary. Everyone takes pesos.

It's a good idea to make a grocery stop in Zihuatenejo as the grocery selection in Los Llanos is limited.

There are no ATMs anywhere close. We spent $320 per person in two weeks, plus $150 to rent boards, so about $35 a day, but we made our own breakfast and sometimes lunch.

Lourdes does rent 2 paddle boards, but has only one paddle, and that is for a very tall man. We met a couple who have a house near the beach who lent us a paddle for the duration, which was awesome. Doug would have been very sad otherwise. Stand-up Paddlers are not welcome anywhere near the line-up before noon.

Might be a good idea to being your own leash as they seemed in short supply when Lourdes got busy. We are beginner surfers and much enjoyed hanging out at the "leftovers", the final stage in the left break. It was easy to avoid the good surfers coming in after their very long ride and everyone was very friendly.

There are 2 great take-out places in Los Llanos, 5 km away - the Chicken Lady barbecues whole chickens and also provides rice, salsa and tortillas for 120 pesos, and there is a restaurant (only open mornings on weekends?) that serves up a great chicken stew and rice. If you don't have a car, locals will pick you up and take you up to Los Llanos.

There is no shopping at all, which is nice. We did encounter a few beach sellers, but they were very sporadic. There are few restaurants, and you'd better like shrimp and rice. Our favourite was Kevin's, just off the beach, but Lourdes is also very good, as are Paco's and Ilianets (this one is more expensive than the others).

All in all, a wonderful trip and we hope to return soon and often. We absolutely loved the house we rented at Lourdes: great location, pool, verandah, and the open concept worked for us too. It was not luxury accommodation, but exactly what we like - potable water was provided and we didn't mind the lack of hot water because the weather was hot and perfect. We also really enjoyed meeting Lourdes and other charming local folks. Two non-surfers joined us for part of our stay and they seemed to enjoy the tranquility, beauty of the area and great weather. There's not much to do in La Saladita except surf, walk along the long and gorgeous beach, read, play guitar and do yoga every day. I hope you appreciate the sarcasm. :) It was such a treat to be able to slow down and do many things we don't have time for in our regular lives...

Breaks Surfed: Saladita, The Ranch, Troncones
Favorite Break: Saladita
Wave/Swell Conditions: 4-7ft

Thoughts I want to pass on:

Come prepared to surf! Saladita works all the time, with plenty of waves to surf all day long. We surfed this break most of our trip. When the wind is calm and there's swell in the water, be prepared to catch the most waves you've ever had. The crowd is non existent and we surfed short boards exclusively. For anyone that says this is a long board wave only, they don't know how to surf a short board. The ranch is a drive away that offers a faster wave with more size. Lourdes was a great host, very kind and welcoming. She makes delicious food and has plenty of long boards for rent if you don't feel like paddling a short board.

Lourdes advertises Internet....there is NO Internet still and the last time I visited was August 2014. The food at Lourdes has gone downhill. My son ordered spaghetti and they gave him Chef Boy-R-D in a can. I usually get a nice bowl of fruit for breakfast there. We went for breakfast for 4 days in a row...they did not have yogurt, granola and the fruit bowl was cut up sour apples. We won't be going there anymore.
