Right on the side of the Punta Mita-La Cruz road and only 8-minute jungle walk distance from La Lancha beach is the WildMex Punta de Mita/La Lancha Headquarters.
WildMex has several, roundtrip or one-way, shuttles running to the Punta de Mita/ La Lancha office from Sayulita every day.
What makes "La Lancha" surf break so attractive?
The secluded beach of La Lancha is accessible by a beautiful jungle walk through the reserve. Year-round consistent waves make it the perfect surf beach.
The water in this south-facing bay is clear and clean – especially compared to Sayulita where the water, unfortunately, suffers from pollution.
The waves are suitable for both; beginners who want to stand their first waves, as well as intermediates who are looking to brush up their skills on the board. Advanced surfers can also enjoy La Lancha, as long as they are aware that they will be surfing mid size and mellow waves.
As beautiful as the beach and water is the wildlife here. During the surf, you will often see big friendly water turtles poking their heads out of the water close to your board, while Pelikans and butterflies are floating through the air.
Which facilities does La Lancha have on offer?
The WildMex Punta de Mita / La Lancha office comes up with everything you need for a great day in the waves.
The headquarters are situated right by the Punta Mita - La Cruz road, 8-minute walk to the beach and have a lovely laid-out atmosphere.
La Lancha facilities have a changing room, safe and individual boxes to store your belongings, security cameras for your tranquility, bathrooms, Eco-showers to rinse when you come out of the water and take out a little bit of the ocean saltiness, towels , rash guards and wetsuit tops for those sensitive to cold water (Dec-Mar around 20-21°C min).
There are several brands of clothing at the store for men and woman available to purchase if by some reason you even forgot your swimming suit or maybe you are just looking to buy a pair of flip flops, a hat, or else.
WildMex offers high-quality equipment and beginner and intermediate lessons with our skilled and bilingual female and male instructors - surfers in all ages and with any experience levels are welcome to join.
After arriving at the office, guests are given individually fitted boards suiting their surfing skills and physique. From here the instructor takes them through a beautiful jungle path to the secluded beach where the fun part begins! The lessons usually take about 2-3 hours and in this gorgeous setting, anyone will be able to catch a few waves.
Also, of course, all the high-quality rentals are available for those who rather venture into the waves themselves.
The surfers enjoying this break are locals and guests equally, and there is Spanish and English chatter in the air while you are waiting to catch the next wave. You might even get the occasional surfing tip from one of the locals 😉
Right next door, the La Lancha surf cafe offers a wide variety of healthy and delicious food and drinks – just what you need to renew your strength after a good surf session out there in the water.
La Lancha – a beautiful alternative to Sayulita. A fun surf break that brings visitors in touch with nature and will make you want to come back for more. More delicious food, fun people and over all: awesome surf!
