Interaction with guests
I am available as much or as little as you like.
Dominical is a quiet surfer town made popular by having consistently good waves: long whitewater for beginner lessons; sandbars form great intermediate waves; and the rivermouth for advanced waves. This beach town offers restaurants, nightlife, artisans and adventure all around.
There is public transport - but to truly explore the area, I recommend renting a 4x4 vehicle.
Enjoy! Treat the house well and let me know what I can do to enhance your stay.
