Hola! Mid 40's female intermediate surfer here... wanting to do a solo surf trip to the Saladita / Troncones area this summer. Thought I'd post here what I'm looking for in hopes that a few of you might have some awesome suggestions.
-- Nice accommodations for 1 ... ideally under $100/night (I usually try to keep it around $80/night).. for an 8-12 day stay. Kitchen, AC at least in sleeping area, right on a surf break.
-- Easy access to buying groceries and fresh fish (or easy access to someone to do that for me if choose to not rent a car).
-- Don't need anything to do other than surf... a quiet location is just fine.
-- Question... would it significantly enhance my experience to have a car? I'm hesitant to do that my first time to a new location - would prefer to know it a bit first - but I do hear that it's a super easy area to get around and safe.
-- If I rent a car (from Zihuantanejo airport), any suggestions? When I'm in the Punta Mita area, I rent from "Gecko" in Bucarias and love them... they tell you the price inclusive of ALL fees before you get there unlike many of the well known chain names, they provide exceptional service, relatively low damage deductible included in price of $600, etc. I always feel confident about my rental experience with them and would love to find that in this area if I rented.
-- Always happy to receive any advice that I didn't think to ask.
Gracias! Salud! -- KEdited: 22 May 2013, 21:10
