“Surfing and more!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Looking for a spring break trip we found Wildmex. Our daughter had expressed an interest in surfing, but my husband and I wanted to do something different. I contacted Wildmex and promptly heard back from Erin. She was great, helping us organize our travel to Sayulita, accommodations, surfing lessons for my daughter and sea kayaking, snorkeling, and stand up paddle boarding for us. Our daughter’s surf instructor, Emma, was the best, patient, friendly, and knowledgeable. They would go to different beaches each day to try different surfs. Even after lessons if she (as well as other surf instructors from Wildmex) saw our daughter out practicing after lessons they would give her tips and encouragement. Our guide/instructor, Steve, was very knowledgeable and patient with us “older generation” while we learned stand up paddle boarding, what fun, and sea kayaking. Definitely would go back to Sayulita and Wildmex.

“Javier and his team are AWSOME!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

This is the third year I have used Wildmex for surf lessons for a group of 30 studnets that are all levels at a yoga/surf retreat I lead at Haramara. Javier is so accommodating and his team is awsome. They are great surf instructors and really friendly and professional. They always find the best places to surf to ensure the experience is great. Every student had a wonderful experience thanks to Wilmex.

“Best surf trips in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

A group of 14 of us contracted with Wildmex this year to go surfing at a beach near Sayulita. Very professional, clean, insured (!) vehicles with ample seating and enough boards for everyone. With 2 instructors they didn't stop until they got everyone up on a wave. Very highly recommended. Best quality experience to date.

“Charlie Brown Rocks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

See if you can get Charlie Brown to give you a deal on surf lessons. He's quite the personality and delivered some rocking lessons for my hubby who's only surfed one other time in Costa Rica.

“Making Lemonade”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

When my friend and I arrived in Sayulita, there was a problem with our accommodations at Playa Los Arcos. We were very disappointed, as we'd paid for the upgraded accommodations and were looking forward to staying right on the oceanfront. The error was on Playa Los Arcos's side and Wild Mex spent the entire week making it up to us. It was AWESOME! We had the best surfing instructor, Andrea, who not only was a great teacher but also had a fabulous personality! We were treated like queens by everyone we came in contact with. Erin was a doll. Xavier was a conscientious and considerate business owner. Pepe was an adorable driver. The rental horses were the very best. The trail ride was magnificent, even though we both have ridden horses all over the world and thought we'd seen everything. Andrea taught me things about surfing that I never knew, even though I had been a surfer girl in the '70s. Hector took great care of us at Villa Amore and we had a blast driving around in the golf cart. Accommodations at Playa Escondida were sweet perfection! I have never felt so safe in Mexico. Asuri, Jose, Juan, Jorge and the restaurant staff were awesome. We could not have had a better time and I can't say enough good things about Sayulita, Wild Mex, Villa Amore and Playa Escondida. It was the vacation of a lifetime and I am forever grateful to those who made it so! Karen
