Venue Highlights

About the retreat house:

Casa Creando Olas sits right on the beautiful deserted beach of La Saladita, in Los Llanos, Mexico, a hidden gem and surfing town about 45 minutes northwest of Zihuatanejo. The house takes the phrase 'open concept' to a new level — it is completely open to the natural surroundings so you are immersed in nature and can enjoy beach living to the fullest.

The house sleeps 12 comfortably. The rooms represent beautiful simplicity so your mind can rest as well as your body will on this retreat. The home was constructed using local materials — the oversized palapa that covers the entire house is truly a work of art and craftsmanship. The front doors are reclaimed from a demolished 1600’s church in a local town in the mountains. Every latch, handle and hinge throughout the house was made by a third-generation blacksmith using his grandfather’s molds.

About the waves:

The region is known as the left-handed Mexican Malibu for its pristine coastline and perfect waves.


Shared rooms consist of two separate beds in a room that have a large, shared bathroom. This isn't a hostel-style room, it is the most luxurious of shared suites we've ever seen.

Master suite (great for two friends): A King-sized bed in a huge room that shares a massive bathroom. There are two master suites, one overlooking the ocean with a private deck, and one poolside that opens up to the pool and ocean.
