Excellent surf lesson experience for families. Nacho is extremely knowledgeable of the different locations, tides, etc. He is also extremely safety conscious. For a family of four, we had Nacho and two assistants. He was careful to stage them all along the ride so that...More

Great experience with Cozumel Surfing. The lessons were perfect, and Nacho stayed with me in the water to help me catch waves as I started out. He even picked me up from town and dropped me back at my hotel. I'd highly recommend.
