I got 2 RT tix and 7 nights for $1,150. Think hotel was $80 a night.
Damn, was gonna ask the price tag for the hotel but that's totally doable for a full week. Surf/eat/sleep and get a little work done.

you work with same guy every time?

that's solid

flying out of TJ is such a pro move. I love it.
Yup. Same guide for 9 trips. He has the key to the gate. One guy in Salina Cruz does too but if it's good down there he won't drive 2 hours. Early morning strikes and its just us. Amazing set up.

Plenty of cheaper hotels. Holiday inn for $55 a night. Even cheaper if you dont want a pool. Guide fee is $100 a day plus gas. Sunday to Thursday this week will be good down here. Surf all day Monday Tuesday Wednesday and part of day Thursday. Flight is 650 PM Thursday.

I want to do that trip.

I am in terrible paddle shape for the points.
Its best to book last minute. Mostly in season you need to worry about too much swell. Dont book when surfline is calling for 6-8 foot plus. Low wave count. Back wrecked from the paddles. SW swells best.

Further south you want those big swells.

I stopped going to Salina Cruz 20 years ago. I can only imagine how busy it is now

Found that hotel on a map. If that right is where I think it is I didn't know that was private property.
