Surfing in the Yucatan peninsula« on: August 17 2007 23:08:00 »
Is there anyplace to surf on the Yucatan peninsula? around Merida/Progreso? I will be there in the end of October and I wonder regarding spots and conditions.

Im going myself to the same area this month.We'll be driving from FL. I've been doing some research and it seems that your best bet is the Carribean side, Cozumel, Cancun, Isla Mujeras and maybe around Tulum. I know for sure there isnt much on the other side of the Yucatan around Progresso and Merida

You can pick up some small surf, but nothing to brag about.

I'm in Merida now an have been trying to search online for information. I'm new to surfing, just learned last summer. Does anyone know a place that would be good for me?

Yucatan is located in the GULF OF MEXICO! Swells travel from either cold fronts from U.S. or east from CARIBBEAN, 2000 MILES away. Save your money and take a quick jaunt to Venezuela where the reefs are more consistent wih ever present trades.

Seen very surfable waves in Cancun, the other side of Cozumel and down below Tulum, below the biosphere. Boards are hard to find. Everyone says there is no surf. I surfed in a kayak last year in solid four foot (post hurricane) reef waves and had a blast...Long rides across the face... Rent a boat & capitan and take a tour along the coast wherever you are. If someone says a place is dangerous that's a good sign, check it out!

UPDATE 2020 YES you can Surf the Yucatan Peninsula and excellent for Paddle, Windsurfing, Kite Surfing with places like el Cuyo, Puerto Aventuras, and google the rest.
I enjoyed surfing and bodyboarding , tubing myself onto left and rights 1 to 3 meters ( 3 to 10ft ) , 7 seconds to 10 seconds waves. Did get held down 3 to 5 seconds
Go to Cancun Zona Hotelera Playa Marlin, Playa Delfines and Playa Chacmool ; Puerto Morelos you can snorkle the 2nd largest reef in the world and then hit playa Punta Brava (by car) for intermediates, a long unoccupied beach.
Isla Mujeres for intermediates best with a bodyboard or long board, on the east side, rent a golfcart for the day 600pesos find a spot on the east side.
Cozumel go to playa Morena for big surf and playa Bonita for beginners.
