Surf and Stay
What does a Surfing day look like?
The surf instructor meet campers each day at the appointed time to take them to one of the many surfing beaches the area. Guests staying at the Sayulita Stay options will be summoned at Wildmex headquarters, yet pick up for people staying at our Punta Mita Stay options is complimentary. Short drives are usually required. Surfers level and ocean conditions determine to which surfing beach we are headed. Some breaks require a short walk through the jungle to get to them; others, you can literally step on sand the moment you get off the van, each break providing a different experience.
During surf sessions the opportunity to meet people from different nationalities, backgrounds and personalities, is a huge part of the Wildmex experience.
Once we are done with the coached surf we will head back, and after regaining energy with delicious food, taking delicious margaritas, exploring town, do some shopping, or nap at the beach, you’re welcome to come and grab a Surf or SUP board to have fun on your own.
For all ability levels
Wildmex focuses on 2 main guidelines, Safety and Fun. Different level guests surf on different breaks, but will get paired up when ability level is similar.
Beginners and Adv. Beginners
Newbies will learn how to surf, catch their own waves, ride the green water and pop up the right way. Depending on the progress, a 10-15 minute land lesson on the first days will be given to practice techniques, then will be time to hit the water with the qualified bilingual instructors' help, by following up on your progress and making sure you're at the surf break with the best conditions for your ability.
Intermediates and Advanced
Surfing guides will coach you through the week looking for guests improvement at surfing. Exploring different breaks, receiving local tips from guides and follow up progress is elementary. Guests get to try different boards from our +200 board inventory, meet great people and enjoy a worry free surf holiday. When conditions and guests ability level allow, we will go to the boat only accessed surf breaks.
At Sayulita you can choose within 3 hotel and 2 hostel options; basic, standard, upgraded and backpacker packages to fit all budgets. At Punta de Mita, there are 2 other hotel options; standard and upgraded packages.
The main difference between Sayulita and Punta de Mita is town life,
Punta de Mita is more secluded with great restaurants and coffee shops, perfect for a relaxing vacation. Closer and with easy access to many surfable beaches. There's not much of a night life so it's mostly for people wanting to take a calm vacation surfing or relaxing at the beach and in their hotels, like a romantic getaway or a family trip.
Sayulita is the complete opposite, perfect for solo travelers, families who like to stay active and get in touch with town and people, or a group of friends. Sayulita hosts a lot restaurants, shops, bars, and there's always something going on downtown. Some accommodations let you have a relaxing stay in this busy environment so you get to enjoy both scenarios.
*During Christmas & New years; 15% price increase due to higher accommodation costs.
