Community Kitchen, clean bath rooms, laundry, daily cleaning service, relaxing hammocks/reading area. This place seems to attract really kind and laid back people. The dorm (where...

We stayed at "Kassidy's Hotel" for 5 days as part of a Softball Sister Cities and Breast Cancer Awareness project. The lodge is lovely, right on the beach so you can have morning coffee watching the fishing boats come in, with a rustic feel but really all the comforts you need: clean rooms, good food, internet as long as the...

Okay, so a group of 18 women come to visit Playa Gigante to bring Breast Cancer Awareness and play softball in the middle of winter in Oregon. So, paradise awaits you.

Away from the crowds and with off-the-charts hosts. Not only were we surfing all day, but also landed enough fish to feed a village (ok a small village). Kassidy and Ben, among others, put on a great trip for us and were extremely accommodating with recommendations and anything else. Plus, they work closely with the locals, with Walter and his...

Our group of 9 friends, from 50 something has beens to teenage chargers, fell into a dreamland of surf, comraderie, laughter and adventure at Dale Dagger's Surf Lodge.
