Thank you Carolyn for such a wonderful experience. Mahahual is the perfect place to learn this sport and Carolyn is the perfect instructor. I can't wait to do this again.

It was a delight to meet you and Judy! When you get tired of all the culture in San Miguel, please come back to Mahahual for more sun, beach, and paddle time. You were a great student.

“Perfect place to learn or enjoy stand up paddle boarding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

During our family cruise which included a stop in Costa Maya on 1/2/14, we visited Carolyn at UnderToe Mexico so our daughters (age 13 & 10) could learn how to paddle board. Carolyn took the time to teach our girls the "right" way to paddle and it was easy to see the difference her instruction made. There were others that were trying to learn with a different company tied to the cruise ships but all they got were some cheap boards and a safety briefing. Not the personal instruction Carolyn provided or the better equipment she had either. And the cherry on top? Her fee is so much less!! $40/hr vs $100 if booked through the other guys through your cruise ship! My girls loved her and they loved paddle boarding! The beach was quiet and secluded and the water was so perfect for paddle boarding. Calm and peaceful for as long as you wanted to paddle! A great environment all the way around! Thanks Carolyn!!

Quick $2/person cab from the port to YaYa Beach is definitely the way to go. Speaking of YaYa Beach, check out the restaurant there. They have full day packages available that are a great fit for those looking to spend a day in Costa Maya while visiting on a cruise ship that include a great authentic Mexican lunch, open bar (where my wife swears she got the best margaritas she's ever had), reserved chairs on the beach and very attentive service.

Hola, Shannon. So glad we could help you get "the perfect vacation day" with your great YaYa Beach margaritas under a palapa while the girls had fun on the boards. They were so cute - helps to have such a low center of gravity! Come again, soon.

“A Must Try!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

After my first experience at UnderToe, I was hooked! I have gone paddle boarding several times during my trips to Mahahual. Carolyn is an excellent instructor and gives very understandable directions. The boards she uses are high quality and because of this, you feel very stable on the board - it seems almost effortless to stay standing up! If you are going to go paddle boarding in Mahahual, you must do it through UnderToe!

You were a natural and were great "advertisement" for UnderToe in your bright pink bikini on my red board. Come back soon!

“Great fun.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

Carolyn and her team made this great for our family. It was an easy $2pp taxi ride to her beach where she had SUPs ready for us. It was the best ocean paddle boarding ever with a one mile long area totally flat and protected by a reef. No problem getting there and back from our ship. Millions of taxis.

“Undertone is the only way to go in Mahahual”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

My daughter has tried this several times. She loves it! Carolyn is the only one that gives lessons. You see the other paddle boarders having trouble because they do not give good instructions. You will have a better time because of this. If you are going to try stand up paddle boarding, try it in Mahahual where the weather and scenery are just wonderful! The people are very friendly and it is very safe here.

Thank you, Lisa. I laugh sometimes watching the cruise ship groups in bulky life vest struggling to stand up and use paddles that are too short. Please bring Jennifer again soon.
