Enjoyed a nice day of surfing with Jose. He and his staff enjoy surfing and the culture that goes with it. Felt safe and taken care of, board and rash guard provided. Transportation easy, bilingual, complete knowledge of area and breaks. Highly recommend.

Thanks to Jose and Javier's kindness, patience and experience, we had the perfect day! Expect a 45 minutes van ride without much comfort and A/C, a 5/10 minutes walk from the road to the beach through the jungle carrying your surf boards but once you get to that beach, it's wonderful! We were a group of 8 (4 teenagers and... More

There is no other way to surf in PV! It doesn't matter if you are a beginner or experienced. The instructor picks you up, drives you thru beautiful scenery and takes you to the "spot" that is perfect with waves and barely disturbed beach and provides all the equipment. You truly live the experience of a local surfer. (Yes, that... More

My boyfriend and I spent our first full day in Puerto Vallarta surfing with Vallarta adventures- although we enjoyed he experience, we really wanted something more personal and hands on- Vallarta Surf Guide was beyond our expectations of perfection. Jose picked us up, drove to a few surf spots to find the most appropriate waves for our level of experience,... More

Went with my boyfriend who is an experienced surfer who absolutely loved this trip. I even had a great time as an observer as we got to experience a beautiful beach that we wouldn't have seen had we stayed at our resort. Jose can adapt to any experience level which makes it even better for anyone looking to go out... More

Absolutely exceeded expectations! Our guide Alex was incredible. He played tour guide, food guide, surf guide you name it. Picked us up at our hotel in a green VW Thing which was so cool! Alex never rushed us and was willing to keep us in the water until we couldn't float any more! I would recommend this company and Alex... More

Jose is amazing we had a big group with lots of kids and adults all beginners and everyone got up and were surfing within minutes of arrival. If your looking for a great time and great instructors look no further.
