My wife and I drove with my cousin and his girlfriend to Green Surf in El Transito this March. Within the first hour it was clear that this exclusive, beautiful, and safe setting was exactly what we needed to decompress from the busy noise of our lives in New York City. Dave at GreenSurf is quite simply, a man of the people. He has clearly earned the trust and respect of all of the locals, as well as the people he employs. Our rooms were spotless, and extremely comfortable. The food that was prepared for us was freshly made and delicious.
Walking the beach is a serene experience in El Transito. There were a handful of locals, but otherwise the beach was quiet. A cow even crossed in front of us on one of our sunset walks. When we returned to the relaxing hammocks on the porches of GreenSurf, it was not uncommon for us to sip on fresh coconut water while listening to the waves break.
Green Surf is a quiet and pristine place that Dave has taken great care and pride in preserving. He offered information and stories that conveyed his vision and gave us a true appreciation for where we were. I recommend GreenSurf warmly and without reservation.
