When veteran Las Olas Surf instructor and World Longboard
Champion, Kristy Murphy, described her "secret
spot" with her trademark enthusiasm, she easily
lured our crew to test the location first hand.
Her timing was perfect. For years, we've searched
for another beginner surf destination to match
our Central Mexico location. An expedition was
launched and the surfbreak was tested. After days
of careful research, the votes were in- Kristy's
secret spot was excellent for the newest Las Olas
Surf Safari, Baja Sur. Baja Sur is hosted in a
quaint Mexican village where the Sierra de la Laguna
mountains meet the Pacific Ocean. It's about an
hour shuttle north of Cabo San Lucas at the southernmost
tip of the serene Baja Peninsula.
Referred to by the Mexican people as "pueblo
magico", the village is hideout to artists,
surfers, Bohemians, and a thriving local Mexican
population. Just minutes from prime surfing locales,
the pueblo is a literal oasis loaded with vibrant
culture and rich history. The surrounding chaparral
is stark contrast to the mangos, papayas, and dark
green avocados flourishing due to the natural spring
bubbling up in the center of town and the hard work
of the community. Laid back, friendly locals stroll
the town square with the spirit of hospitality from
morning into the evening.
Gift shops, art galleries, and
charming old-world architecture surround each colorful,
locally owned bistro often featuring organic food
and refreshing cocktails, all steps from your room
at our classic, boutique hotel.
The builders of your hotel were definitely not afraid
of color, but what makes the design exceptional is
how they used vibrant hues in contrast with local
themes. The environment throughout is an excellent
example the artists' personal design flair in combination
with classic and abstract inspiration. It all comes
together to create one of Mexico's favorite hideaways.
Each guest room is remarkably
unique starting with the abstract artwork adorning
the walls. Antique details beautifully frame the
modern masterpieces, while bougainvillea framed enclaves
provide the perfect repose for conversation or recharging
for tomorrow's surf. Soft light and cool ocean air
bounce off the brightly colored walls and spark a
sense of spontaneous fun.
Enjoy an evening cocktail with
your newfound friends at any one of the three lively,
colorful bars with selections in fine tequila perfect
for sipping or mixing in frosty margaritas, or just
order a refreshing cerveza with lime wedge and settle
in. Relax at the pool-side cabana or sit down to
a delicious meal in one of hotel's cozy dining areas.
Later, take a stroll through the Gallery Shop next
door featuring original artwork and rare treasures
to remind you of your stay at this magical place.
Our favorite beach is a vast and pristine stretch
of sand that rolls out to meet endless long board
waves up and down the coast. We like the sandy
bottom for first time pop-ups and bottom turns.
The gentle beach-break allows for smooth take offs,
and with plenty of waves for everyone, you'll find
this location to be one of the most friendly surf
spots in Mexico.
Sitting on your board, the gentle
sway of the ocean rolls beneath you. Absorb the surrounding
views and the joyful sounds of whales frolicking
in the distance. The brilliant blue ocean meets the
land, leading your eyes to the lofty mountains above
surrounding this stunning sanctuary.
settle in the shade of a palapa you'll find at
the cozy cabana. There you can grab a bite and
sip a toast to this perfect beachcombers clubhouse
with some of the friendliest service and cleanest
baños around. Get inspired while
watching the surf and relaxing in the gentle breezes.
Where there is art, fine dining is never far behind.
With more than it's fair share of praise from food
and wine magazines, the creative ambience adds
flair to your dining experience that you not only
taste, but truly feel.
Indulge in the some of the freshest
and most succulent seafood or try one of the many
delectable vegetarian selections made from the finest
locally grown organic produce. Whether you prefer
Mexican or European style cooking, you'll find something
to suit your taste at one of the many renowned cafes
surrounding your landmark hotel.
