Jacqueline's cozy downstairs apartment set just behind her beachfront villas is the perfect weekend surfer's pad. A short walk across the street and through the villas' garden and you'll find yourself on the shore scoping out the longest left in Mexico!
The studio apartment has a king size bed, small refrigerator and filtered water included. There's also WiFi and A/C.
The large bathroom has a sink, toilet, urinal and standing shower with hot water. There's plenty of storage as well.
Jacqueline's apartment is located on the dirt road that goes to the point, and is the first place you'll pass once you go through the gate. Though it's located on the street, this is a lazy place so you won't hear much traffic—as there isn't much!
While set back from the beach you can enjoy the chaise lounges and hammocks in the communal front beach area when you're not surfing. There are also outdoor showers there to rinse off after surfing.
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.
