Surfing in mexico

« on: September 12 2005 19:09:00 »

I'm heading down to Mexico for a few months.  The last time I was in Mexico I was only able to surf in Puerto vallarta, it was pretty nice, but was wondering where some other great places to learn to surf would be.  I will be traveling all over the map from Cancun to Acapulco.  So don't hold back on Locations.  Thanks....

From Puerto Vallarta you can travel to Sayulita, San Pancho or San Blas to the North.  San Blas in May features incredible 1.5 mile plus rides.

To the South look for Punta Chalacatepetl, Ticla and Pascuales

However the area of Punta Mita in Banderas Bay is blessed with the most consistent surf almost year round. Northern Hemispheres in Winter, Southern Hemispheres in Summer and we also get west and North West swells...Surfable waves 250 days of the year...The deal is the surf is mainly accessible by boat and you have to know the area well to find the limited access there is by road!!!

Try Hotel Hawaii.. very close to the surf beach (olas atlas) and a good resterant is La Sunrisa. Check it out. Best tacos EVER.
