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!
