Why come to Salina Cruz?
People come to Salina Cruz to surf sand-bottom pointbreaks and get the best waves of their lives. Chances are you will score, but in the down time we do offer other activities in and around Salina Cruz if the surf is not cooperating. Swim in our new pool, go for day hikes up to the secret water fall and swimming hole to cleanse off the salt water, take a panga out for world-class fishing in the Pacific Ocean, or go explore the uncharted coast for new zones to surf and beaches to comb.
Don’t forget that Oaxaca is home to the proudest people in all of Mexico! The Oaxacans have some of the strongest and oldest culture in the world, still speaking dialects that originated from their ancestors hundreds and hundreds of years prior to the arrival of the Spaniards. Take an afternoon to checkout the local scene in Juchitan or Tehuantepec where you can see amazing Mexican artisania and experience local culture. If you are lucky you may find your self dancing in one of Oaxaca’s famous festivals that happen each year.
Oaxaca City is 4 hours from Salina Cruz, where you will find one of Mexico’s most beautiful cities, as well as the amazing ruins of Monte Albán which is one of Central Mexico’s greatest tourist attractions. The ruin complex is situated on a high, man-made plateau with a breathtaking view. The land is very dry, giving the ruins a sun-baked, haunted look. The complex is large, so if you’re going to visit, be sure to dedicate at least two hours to do so.
