The Property

Lourdes' Rustic Jungle Bungalow is a small two story building set back just a few steps from the beach in a lush jungle setting. It is very simple lodging, but ideal for the surfer on a budget who needs a place to rest and wants to be close to the break. It's about 30 yards to the beach from the bungalow and at one of the closest points to the point, so ideally located for a paddle out. It is also just next door to Casa Verde, Lourdes' larger rental home.

The bungalow has a bathroom on the first level that has a toilet, sink and standing unheated shower. Proceeding up the steps at the top is a wash basin for dishes or laundry. Inside the second level screened in room are two double beds with simple mattresses on wooden frames, and a camp style kitchen. There are two oscillating fans and the screened in windows throughout the space provide a nice ocean breeze.

The kitchen consists of a small 2 burner gas stove, a small refrigerator and a coffee maker. Filtered water is provided as well as basic utensils, dishes and pots and pans.

While the bungalow offers no frills, it is very relaxing and as it's set back from the beach, quite peaceful.


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.
