The Property

Blanca's Beachfront Bungalows are a great choice for the surfer looking to be right on the water and in the thick of the surf scene. Bungalow #5 is located just next door to Lourdes' Bar & Grill on the north side. The ideal spot to paddle out to the wave, or catch up with the locals and visitors about how the waves are pumping.

This rustic bungalow is beachfront with ocean views and has a great lawn area for kids or toddlers to romp on! There is a large front porch area with chairs and hammocks for relaxing.

You can cook your own meals while you sit back and watch the surfers glide by on Saladita's long left-hand wave. On the porch is the camp style kitchen which has a small countertop with a camp stove with 2 gas burners. A coffee maker, small refrigerator, dishes, utensils and pots and pans are also provided as well as filtered water.

There are two ample bedrooms that have two full size beds in each room, ceiling fans, mosquito netting over the beds, shelves for storage and windows all around that can close for privacy, or open to let the ocean breeze roll in. All doors lock with a key to take with you.

At the end of the porch is the private bathroom that has a sink, toilet and a standing shower with temperate water. There is also an outside shower on the front lawn for rinsing off after surfing!

The bungalows are just a few steps away from the sand as well as Lourdes' Bar & Grill. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is served there as well as drinks, smoothies and snacks. Though the restaurant usually closes at 9:30pm and it's a chill crowd, because it is the hub of the community you might hear some noise from next door.

About the Neighborhood

La Saladita is a sleepy little surf village where you can walk most anywhere barefoot, and besides surfing there's not much to do but relax and swing in a hammock. There's a very small community of locals and expats who call Saladita home, and there's a continual flow of visitors that return year after year to Saladita for its consistent year round surf. There are 5 beachfront restaurants, most shutter by dark with the exception of Lourdes' Bar & Grill which is open until 9:30pm. The latter accepts credit cards, while most of the village only accepts cash.

There's no need for a vehicle here, unless of course you want to explore the nearby town of Troncones which is 25 minutes to the south, or other surf breaks like the Ranch and Palo Alto, which are about 30 to 45 minutes driving to the north.

There are local taxis that can take you anywhere you need to go. You can find a driver at Lourdes' Surf Shop where they tend to hang out.

The closest town is Los Llanos where there are a few small grocery stores and an ATM. There are also multiple tacos stands and rotisserie chicken restaurants, should you tire of the fare on the beach. Los Llanos is about 10 minutes inland from the beach.

There's a small grocery store at Tortas & Mariscos Kevin, on the road just before you arrive to the beach that offers simple grocery items as well as fresh baked bread in the mornings.
