Surfing saladita in rainy season

Many people have asked me what surfing is like during the rainy season here in playa la saladita. Our rainy season is from around the end of May to the end of September and can be some of the best time of the year to surf. The way the beach here in Saladita is situated it picks up lots of south swells which tend to start to fill in around the beginning of may and are very consistent in the summer months.

A typical rain during the summer could start in the afternoon , rain all night and then nice clear sunny and hot the next day. During rainy season Tropical storms are more frequent and with them comes the bigger swells. Sometimes the swell can be messed up from secondary storm swells but often the rain helps to settle the swell and it can be clean and fun!

Whatever season you’re coming to enjoy La Saladita you’ll find fun waves. Even the rainy season is a good time to come surf. Definitely bring plenty of bug spray tho as the rains tend to bring them to life.

Also it’s a good idea to wait until we’ve had a few good rains come through before paddling out as the rivers break and bring lots of debris from upstream into the ocean creating potential hazards in the surf.

Cook Your Chile Relleno and Eat it Too!

There’s lots of things to love about Mexico and the food is likely high on that list. Learning to prepare favorite classic Mexican dishes like mole, chile relleno, enchiladas and more can be a fun and delicious way to spend an afternoon.

I took some friends to the local cooking school where we learned the “whole enchilada” from prep to fire; stuffing poblano peppers with potatoes and cheese and rolling and pressing own tortillas and pan roasting and blending the delicate red sauce.

Our chef and teacher made the whole class a fun ang tasty experience. Would highly recommend to anyone that enjoys eating and learning to cook!

Relaxing spot in the jungle

A visit to the Troncones – Playa La Saladita Riviera wouldn’t be complete without stopping for an evening soak at the local hot springs. Located pretty much in the middle of nowhere your best bet getting there is to hire a local taxi. Make sure to bring plenty of water as the upper pool is literally bubbling out of the ground. There’s a rich mineral clay you can scrape around the edges of the pool that serves as a natural exfoliant. You’ll feel both energized and relaxed after a visit and your body will thank you.

Time for Yoga
