With a mix of reef , point and beach breaks offering both right and left breaking waves this area is sure to provide a surf break for everyone's taste.
Not only is the area great for the intermediate and advanced surfer but it is also an ideal place to learn how to surf. Beaches like Sayulita and Punta de Mita offer onsite surf schools to teach beginners the basics of surfing.
San Pancho and Sayulita are very popular with the local surfers. Although, San Panch is more of a challenge with larger waves and a stronger current. Sayulita is more protected with a gentle surf on most days making it a perfect spot to taking lessons.
