- Bedroom 11 King
- Bedroom 22 Full/Doubles
This simple apartment is perfect for a group of surfers looking to be close to the beach and the break, but don't need any frills. Located above Jacqueline's Restaurant it's only a few steps from the beach, and a short 5 minute walk to the break.
Accessed by stairs you'll enjoy a large open air patio where the kitchen and dining area are located with a bar for chilling. Wash dishes watching the waves! You'll have direct ocean views, though the break is slightly obscured by the roof of the oceanfront restaurant in front.
There are two ample bedrooms. The front ocean view bedroom has two full size beds and the back mountain view bedroom has a king size bed. Both rooms have dressers with plenty of storage.
There are two private bathrooms with a sink, toilet and standing shower with cold water. Though there isn't heated water, you rarely need it and it's luke warm, not freezing cold.
The kitchen has a small refrigerator, 4 burner gas stove top, dishes, utensils and pots and pans. Filtered water is also included. The house is cleaned every 3rd day by Cesar's attentive cleaning staff.
Though quite spartan, this is the perfect place to surf, eat, sleep, repeat—and on a budget.
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 convenient store at Tortas & Mariscos Kevin, on the road just before you arrive to the beach that offers basic pantry items and snacks, as well as fresh baked bread in the mornings. However there is no fresh produce in the village of La Saladita.
Also known as Ubilam, or Malibu spelled backwards. La Saladita, the Wave Machine, is a mellow and crumbly left reef/point break. Saladita surf sessions offer long rides, good vibes, and beautiful surroundings. Waves here are a goofy foot longboarder's dream. Consistency is year-round with best conditions during summer.
