La Lancha beach access path gets bridges for the Rainy Season
Rainy season is here in Sayulita and Punta Mita! But does that stop the wave-hungry surfers and surfistas and our adventure-devoted team at Wildmex from surfing La Lancha? Hell noppp!
Whatever the weather, our Wildmex team will always find a way to overcome these little hiccups in life, (especially when the waves are waiting for us on the other side!)
For those of you that don’t know, in general, there are two main seasons in the Riviera Nayarit – the rainy season, which runs from June through to mid-October and the dry season which runs from mid-October through to June.
However, even in the rainy season, the rain normally falls in short bursts, most often at night or in the late afternoon, with most days being hot and dry, leaving most of the day free for outdoor activities such as stand up paddleboarding in Punta Mita and surfing in La Lancha!
However, for those of you that do know the area, you’ll be fully aware that Sayulita and Punta Mita’s locations on the Central Pacific coast of Mexico are hemmed in by luscious jungle wilderness, giving it that subtropical climate. So, when the rainstorms do come in heavy downpours, our wild tropical trails to our surf beaches become, well, even wilder!

After winning back public access to La Lancha beach, a long-favourite surf break in the area for locals and tourists in 2016, Wildmex are, as always, 100% committed to serving its community of adventure-seekers and nature-lovers, and want to continue to see the coastal communities and tourists alike, enjoy the beaches, surf, nature and wildlife this paradise has to offer with ease.
So, as authorized by Profepa and in conjunction with Punta MITA, Wildmex took quick action last week by building temporary bridges and trail crossings, allowing the community to continue their daily adventure activities as per usual! Meaning surf lessons in La Lancha, surfboard rental in Punta Mita and stand up paddle boarding in Punta Mita have continued as normal.
These trail crossings built by our on-the-ball team, cover the 10-minute jungle stretch and sole beach access to La Lancha’s famous surfing beach boasting multiple left-hand and right-hand breaks.
This is what Javier Chavez Wildmex’s CEO and founder had to say about the bridge building venture “_This is the beginning of a project that will better the access to La Lancha Beach for Surfers and all visitors, making getting to the beach safer, more enjoyable and reduce the impact on the surrounding environment. We ask all visitors to be really respectful of nature, wildlife, and all other beach users_”.
We are on a mission and that mission is catching waves, exercising the mind, being one with nature and hanging tight with our coastal crew, so with that in mind, nothing can stop us…
It’s all in a day’s work for our Wildmex team!
