Staying on the island with Shane and Rebecca was one of my best travel experiences yet. They're super accommodating and as soon as i arrived felt at home.
As a surfer it was a dream; every day I a huge long white sand beach with A-frame breaks running as far as the eye could see with no one on it. There's also lots to do as well as surfing such as fishing, exploring the island and getting to know the locals.
Highly recommend Santos Marina and Surf Island to any traveller looking to get off the tourist route and experience something different.
My time there was just wonderful, it actually couldn't be any better. The hosts are just the best! They were not just hosts but became good friends. The island life and its slow pace is amazing, peaceful atmosphere. The locals are such a friendly and welcoming people that you'll just love, kids are great and have a lot of energy. It's all about community! Totally recommended. But to get the best of it, go, and be willing to take part of the beautiful dream the hosts are turning into reality. Use your gifts to contribute for improvements in the village. It's rewarding. You won't regret it!! (:
I can't even describe what a special experience this was. The place is beautiful, Shane and Rebecca were kind, fun and very chill and they both care a lot about the community. It was a pleasure to spend time here, to help out and to get to know everyone. Thanks so much for having me!
We had the best experience with Shane, Rebecca and Santos ! Very laid back and easy going, always ready to help/teach you things. Wonderful location if you want to be around nature, they made sure we never lacked of anything. Gave us directions as to what we can help with but also let us decide whatever we wanted to work on, glad that we could give these gems a hand. Getting to know the kids that live there built great memories for us, and the people of the community were very open and kind to us.
Santos Marina was one of a kind adventure! Everything about that place is great, but what made the experience worth it were the people! Both Santos and Shane were incredible hosts! The people of the community were also amazing, especially the kids! I had only planned to be at island for one week but after a great week there I added on two more and I'm hoping to go back in the fall!
