Mexico ➝ Oaxaca ➝ Salina Cruz
Las Palmeras Surf Camp is approximately 80 miles south of Hautulco, Oaxaca Mexico in Salina Cruz, which is a port city near the Gulf of Tehuantepec. The Surf Camp is located in the Playa Brasil (Beach Brasil), very close to both Punta Conejo and Punta Chivo, two incredible surf breaks.
Regarding the accomodation, the resort is very modern and confortable. There are three different cabins, each one with two separate rooms, and space for up to 3 people per room. Each room has queen sized beds, private bathroom with on demand hot water, A/C, WiFi and Google Chrome built into each television. The cabins, or "cabañas" have their own private garden area where guests can relax, stretch, or practice yoga beneath the shade of the native Brasil Trees...doesn't it sound like a dream?
The rest of the resort is just as impressive. The corwn jewel is the swimming pool, which looks into the ocean. This space is also family friendly, as kids have their own separate pool where they can break free and splash all they want. All this surfing and swimming and enjoying will open up some stomachs, so Las Palmeras Surf Camp has an amazing restaurant beneath a large palapa with a shaded terrace and bar where you can enjoy your favorite beverage, watch television, play guitar or just hang out and relax. They also offer things as ice cream, snacks and alcohol, which guests will appreciate when it gets warm outside.
Surfers will be happy to know that they have experienced guides and a staff with extended knowledge of weather and surf conditions on the coast of Southern Oaxaca. If you are looking for a place to maximize your surf time, with quality learning in terms of tides and wind, your best option is the Palmeras Surf Camp. Surfing sessions depend on guests preference, you can request any time of wave, or set the time according to your desires ( either leave at the crack of dawn, or get going at the later hours for those who like to sleep in). Of course, every surfer knows that they are slaves to nature, so so even if the guides will do their best to adapt to their needs, guests will have to be a bit flexible if they want to get the most out of the tides and the wind. You will take WD vehicules to the beach, wich facilitates getting across the large sandy beaches. Groups are kept small, usually having a maximum of 5 people.
Still need more? At Las Palmeras there are also yoga matts, foam rollers, guitars if you want to play some music, and books to read. For some unwinding on the sofa, they have surf videos, Netflix, cable TV and other movies. In your air-conditioned room, you will be provided with fresh towels, clean sheets, soap and lotion daily as well as strong WIFI for those that need to connect. The rooms will be cleaned every day while you are surfing unless specified.
