Well, stayed at Salty Jackal for 4 weeks, it was incredibly nice. I absolutely loved my time there. Everyone is always friendly and clear with all tasks you need to do and everything is well organized and clean. Also, I could join all the activities they were organizing, specially surfing.
I owe a big thanks to Ollie, for taking me to the best surf spots and sharing his knowledge with me and Iris for letting me have the best experience there. Hopefully I can come back in the future.
