San Pancho Surf Adventure
The short and punchy beach break in San Pancho can work for experienced surfers on shortboards when the conditions are right. However, for beginners, the waves are not suitable, and can be dangerous, so this is not the ideal location for surf lessons. However, in the winter even the best surfers will need to be lucky with the conditions to have a good session there, and the strong waves can still be challenging – many will look further afield for an enjoyable session.
Fortunately, Wildmex offers a shuttle service straight from Plaza La Hermandad (the one with the skatepark) all the way to the beautiful La Lancha beach, which has fun, mellow waves ideal for beginners. For those with a bit more experience, the long green waves and uncrowded lineups are ideal to work on your technique. And if you are confident and want to try something different or more challenging, we also offer coached trips out to other breaks in the area.
If you want to take a surf lesson in La Lancha (or just take our shuttle), all you need to do is book the day before, meet us in San Pancho with your swimming gear, and we will take you all the way to the Wildmex HQ, where we have 200+ quality boards to choose from, two changing rooms, individual boxes to safely store your belongings, clean bathrooms, an outdoor shower to rinse off when you come out of the water, fresh towels, rashguards and wetsuit tops for those sensitive to cold water. We look forward to seeing you!

Punta Mita Coached Trips
For those with surfing experience, wanting to improve their skills during their holidays. Our experienced instructors use their local knowledge to find the right break for our guests' ability level on the given ocean conditions.
These trips are always coached/guided, meaning Wildmex instructors are always helping our guests, guiding and giving them pointers throughout the session. One of the great perks in the area are the boat-accessible breaks, which host waves for different ability levels. Depending on the conditions and our guests' ability level, we will help you choose between land-accessed or boat-accessed breaks to get you out on the best waves!
Getting to our Punta Mita Headquarters
The WildMex office in Punta Mita is right in front of the path that leads to the beautiful La Lancha beach. The perfect location if you're staying in the Punta Mita, Bucerias, Puerto Vallarta and La Cruz area!
It's really easy to find the new headquarters; we are right next to the only PEMEX Gas Station and OXXO store on the Estate Highway Punta Mita - La Cruz de Huanacaxtle (right on Km. 15). We offer the same activities and also have board rentals (including SUP and Boogie boards), so feel free to drop by and head to the beach!
Where to meet Wildmex in San Pancho
All our shuttles from San Pancho to La Lancha meet in Plaza La Hermandad in San Pancho, Nayarit, right in the centre of town and easy to reach from most places in San Pancho (if in doubt, its the plaza with the skatepark).
All our shuttles are white taxi-style minibuses with the Wildmex logo on the side - we should be easy to spot!
