Balsasurf Lodge is a self contained ocean home at a world class surf break in the sandy bay of Mompiche village. The Lodge sits in its own private tropical garden. Two minutes walk from the bus stop, beach and shops. Located at the 'Point' end of the village which is quiet, not overdeveloped, some small traditional cabanas, mango trees, lagoon and forests to the shore. It is family owned so the Lodge has everything you need for a Pacific ocean life whether for a few weeks or months at a time.
Truly self contained with the basics for living; cooker, sink, double bed, own water tank, cold water shower, tables, chairs, hammocks, wifi and a view of the surf point from the upstairs window! Please let us know if you require extra beds or other furniture as it is easily arranged beforehand.
Surfboards are available for hire to our guests only. We have a single fin balsa wood longboard and a thruster set up 7'6" lightweight foam board. Great spot to learn inside the bay, or improve and practice your surfing on long lefts out at the famous point.
Our friend and Lodge guardian is Don Ramon Cotera. He owns and protects hectares of forest spaning the hillside behind the village. He is professional, knowlegeable and friendly and will meet you on time. He only speaks Spanish (please use gooogle translate on phone if a non speaker) and will happily show you the Lodge and hand you the keys. He resides in the village if you need any assistance anytime. Both myself and my partner can be contacted day or night by phone call, text or faceb should you need us.
The private water tank will need to be filled every 3 days or so. Wifi is not always constant or a strong signal. Best place in the Lodge is upstairs on the front balcony.
- Please smoke/vape outside the Lodge away from any flamables. Please do not light candles, bbqs or fires on the property, its too risky, much better on the beach. Please replace any item that you break with same or similiar quality and let us know. Please leave the property as clean as beautiful as you found it. Do bring in any furniture or items outside and lock the Lodge including shutters when you leave for any length of time, thank you.
- Please note the minimum length of stay is 14 nights. There is a $25 service fee for 2 week stay paid in cash to Don Ramon Cotera who is your contact in Mompiche. This goes towards water, WIFI and electricity bills, thank you!

Founder of balsasurfers since 2001. Enjoying filming opportunities with partner in England and other mysterious places on this wonderful planet. Converses in Spanish and would like to know more about the lore of old.
