This has been one of my favourite ever holidays... we were picked up at the airport by some really friendly folk, and taken straight to Latas Surf House. We were given a bed in a lovely hotel that was a two minute walk up the road that had an incredible shower and was very clean.
Carlos and his gang really looked after us- the breakfasts and lunches were always really good and filled our hungry bellies post-surf, and the vibe at the surf house was so chilled- a table tennis table arrived whilst we were there, there's an Indoboard, or you could just have a siesta in the sun on one of the recycled surfboard deckchairs. Everyone we met here was really lovely, too, and I have come away with some new friends who I can surf in the UK with.
It was only a short walk down to the beach, and it was great to be able to use the surf boards and wetsuits all day, every day. We mostly had surf lessons from the guys at Errant Surf School (Newquay, UK) who were staying at the same time as us. You can also borrow paddle boards or go skim boarding if there is no surf. There's some lovely coastal walks around the area, too.
Somo is only a 15 minute walk away where there are quite a few bars and restaurants, and from there you can catch the ferry to Santander - we did this one night, and had some fantastic tapas. There's also a really good hotel restaurant on the left hand side of the road as you walk towards Somo, about five minutes from the surf house.
I would really recommend Latas Surf House, you can make it as action packed as you want to and it's full of great people.
