Hola soy Maura. I’m a New York City native, avid surfer (love to mountain bike and snowboard too) and I’m your hostess here at Las Casitas. I traded in my hectic city life for the quiet of the Mexican Pacific 15 years ago in 2005 when I came here on vacation, fell in love with Mexico (its’ people, culture and of course its’ endless stretch of surfable coastline) and basically haven’t left since. I love to host surfers and travelers from around the globe and help them to enjoy a unique and authentic travel experience here in La Saladita, Mexico.
I appreciate the difference local knowledge can make in a visitors stay and love sharing with my guests this little slice of coastal paradise and its’ “secret spots”. Being half Ecuadorian I’m fluent in Spanish and can help with all kinds of trip logistics that can make your visit here a more enriching experience. Whether it’s pointing out the best place to paddle out to the break or finding that hidden fresh fish taco joint that’s just opened up in town…to arranging airport transfers, board hire, surf lessons, massages, day trips or in-house personal cooking services,..I am here to help!
Along with my furry rescues (I do a lot of volunteer work with our local animal rescue group Surfers For Strays) and my staff (my housekeeper Paty and gardener Raul are amazing) we aim to provide our guests with a a memorable and enjoyable vacation experience here in Playa La Saladita :).
