Went on a solo trip and had an amazing time at Solid Surf. Stayed for a week and met some amazing people from all over the world (france, germany, canada, etc.) Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Best waves Ive ever surfed with offshore winds and consistent with any tide throughout the day. El Transito is definitely a gem. Will be back soon!

Just got back from staying at Solid Surf Hostel and it was amazing! From the wonderful hospitality of the owner, Allison, to the amazing fresh food cooked by Martha and the staff I didn't want to leave. The property is beautiful, clean and relaxing. The hardest decision of the day was which hammock to relax in! Last but not least, the surf was great. From beginners to pros the surf instruction and knowledge we received was phenomenal! I'm definitely planning a trip back!
