Punta Conejo Resort was created with the vision to provide a unique and tranquil ocean front resort experience in the land of right hand sand points. In short, this is a surfer’s dream come true. Located on the beautiful beaches of Playa Brasillito, the resort sits directly behind a classic 300 meter right hand ‘Malibu type’ sand point called Punta Conejo. This location was chosen because it is close enough to town that you can experience the bustling city and nightlife of Salina Cruz yet far enough out of town to relax and unwind with the sound of waves crashing on the shore after a long day of surfing.
Positioned on the hillside just south of the point at Las Flores, Miraflores Surf Lodge has a spectacular view of the surf, beach, ocean and coastline to the south towards the town of El Cuco. The simple accommodations here provide a place to unwind from the demands of life back home. The vibe of the property is relaxed and comfortable with several world-class waves in the immediate area. Each of the 5 rooms has comfortable beds and is designed to accommodate 2-3 guests per room. Every unit is equipped with air-conditioning and private bathrooms.
The high level of personalized service, comfortable accommodations, uncrowded surf potential combined with over 8 years of experience running surf tours makes this a smart choice for surfers looking to maximize their water time. The guides are local surfers making them experts at knowing which waves are working best based on the swell, tide, weather conditions. Endless options for action and water sports. The most popular surf spot, Playa Encuentro is located in between the two cities and approximately 10 miles west of the Puerto Plata International Airport.
