Mita Surf House made my vacation in Punta de Mita awesome.

We set up two days of private surf lessons with Andrés who I highly recommend. He was great with my teenage son who already had experience surfing and most surprisingly, he was awesome with me, a middle-aged woman. I have never stood up on a surf board before, and had low expectations, but thought it’d be fun to give it a go— the water is so comfortable to be in, I figured, why not. Andrés gave me just the guidance and push I needed (literally, he pushed my board into the waves) to catch waves and stand up. By the end of my first lesson with Andrés, I was able to catch waves on my own. So fun.

Kate also organized a day trip to the Marietas Islands for us— we got a small private boat for a reasonable fee— which I LOVED. I will definitely go back. The islands are so beautiful and the wildlife really special— don’t miss heading out there!

I found Mita Surf House online and was so lucky to find the perfect fit for my daughter and I. She’s 10 and learning to surf. As a mom traveling alone with my child, there were so many unknowns of how I was going to make all the logistics happen- boards, lessons, rides to different breaks, extra eyes and help in the water. After our first day with Luis as her instructor, I knew I wasn’t going to look anywhere else. He took such care and consideration with her. I felt she was completely safe, yet still being challenged and progressing everyday. By the end of the trip, she was dropping in going right and left. Her wave count was way above mine. I can’t thank Luis enough for being THE BEST surf instructor and guide. It made our trip an over the top success that far exceeded my expectations of how it was going to go. We made memories that will last forever, and shared our mutual love for surfing. It was priceless. I’ve traveled a bit as a surfer but this area is the very best place I’ve seen for kids to learn, but still have waves for adults. I would recommend both Luis and the area for families with kids or anyone just wanting to have an experienced surf guide who’s going to help them advance their skills. He also hooked us up with the best private boat to go to Murietas and whale watching. It was magical.

We were a group of 10 (2 families with 6 teenage kids) and for most our surfing experience was very beginner. Luis and his other instructors were amazing. We all got up and had a fabulous time. A few of the teens went back for more on other days where they got more tips and further instruction. Very professional and friendly operation! Thank you Kate and Luis!

The Mita Surf House is PERFECT in every possible way; a clean, comfortable beautifully designed spot where you can relax all day and also be in easy walking distance to the beach and spots to eat if you want to go out. With all the kitchen you need you can visit for a week or easily stay a month (I worked remotely here for the better part of a month). Part of what makes it so great is that Kate & Luis are fantastic hosts - kind, communicative and available for advice, directions or support. Go there to work, play, swim, surf, retreat and renew!!!

After having kids I stopped surfing. I was a long boarder who was never very good but I love the water. My lesson with Luis at La Lancha was eye opening and fun. I realized I had a lot to learn and he was a really good teacher— more than just someone in the eaves with you, Luis actually pays close attention to what you are doing and gives you excellent advice on how to correct it. I feel like if I spent three days with his lessons I’d improve by leaps and bounds. It’s exciting to be educated — even in surfing!! I had a great time and my husband who doesn’t surf also learned so much. Thank you 🙏 Luis and thank you Kate who dealt with all my questions and was flexible with my need to change plans.

This was my third stay at Mita Surf House, and this time I stayed in the new spot across the street - the studio, swimming pool, palapa! Simple elegance. It had everything I needed. Kate and Luis are incomparable hosts with millions of suggestions and helpful tips for making the most of a mellow little village paradise. Luis provided surf coaching and helped coordinate boat trips for optimal conditions (and whale watching). Amazing.

My wife, my daughter and I stayed in Mita Surf house.
Kate and Luis do a great job. Kate is super nice, takes care of all the details and makes sure you get a very delicious full filling breakfast to get you ready for the day activities. Luis is the best surfing coach, very patient and committed to get you to achieve your goal. We read testimonies of people who had learned to surf before with Luis but were worry about my wife as she is not really a water person. Honestly, we knew that if my wife didn’t learn it was because of her being uncomfortable in the ocean. My daughter and I managed to learn fairly quickly. My wife took longer, but Luis dedication and patience got her to surf few waves. We were so happy once she did it. Thank you very much Luis, we found another sport to do together as a family thanks to you. Thank you Kate for taking care of all the details for us. You guys together made our vacation, thank you very much!

Our trip to Punta de Mita, staying at Mita Surf House, was one of the best travel experiences I've ever had. The lodging is so comfortable and had everything we needed, including a swimming pool for a dip in the heat of the day. My friend and I were working remotely part of our stay, and had excellent WiFi access.

Kate and Luis are fantastic hosts. I had two surfing lessons with Luis and he was an excellent instructor, plus nice to hang out with while we waited for waves! He really knows the area, what's under the water, what to watch out for, etc. which was key as it is a rocky shoreline in spots.

Punta de Mita is a lovely, quiet town, about an hour drive from Puerto Vallarta. There are other surf spots nearby. Check out the Sunday market in La Cruz for some beautiful crafts and delicious food.

Luis and Kate were both wonderful and incredibly helpful in coordinating our trip. This was our second time surfing with Luis, and we’ll definitely be coming back! Luis is a gifted surfer and an excellent teacher. He helped my girlfriend become more comfortable in the water, learning to better read waves and working on positioning. Luis has an incredible selection of boards making it super easy to travel light and surf with him.
We cannot wait to visit Mita Surf house again!

Thanks for another great surf adventure! We first met Luis last March for our family's first surf experience. Luis and crew were fantastic. We returned this December with another family and had another great experience. Very friendly and professional. Highly recommend.
