Lourdes' Casa Verde is located directly on the point at the closest point to the break, so you can paddle out right in front of the house, and is the only lodging on the point that has a pool. You'll also enjoy the privacy of the fenced in garden area, so you'll be able to relax on the large lawn and garden only with guests of Casa Verde.
Casa Verde is a large 2 story home that also has two private rooms that are attached to the main home, but have their own private entryway. This ground floor private room is a small studio apartment for up to 2 people.
The ground floor studio apartment has a double bed, ceiling fans, WiFi, A/C, a fully equipped kitchenette with 2 gas burners, en suite bathroom with standing shower, views to the ocean as well as the parking/jungle area behind with screened windows and doors. There is a small seating area in front of the apartment where you can enjoy your meals, and look out on the ocean or the pool. There's also a jacuzzi attached to the pool.
You will share the large garden and pool area with any other guests renting other parts of Casa Verde—the entire home sleeps up to 12. There is an outdoor shower so you may rinse off after surfing, and there's also board racks outside.
You may organize through Lourdes to have a massage therapist make a personal visit to the house or arrange a taxi to pick you up from the airport. Lourdes also has an ample selection of surfboards and SUPs to rent at her surf shop, so no need to pay board fees!
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.
