Josué and his wife arranged 3 days of surfing and took us to different surf breaks on their boat. They have a great selection of boards and their boat was very comfortable. Their surf guides and shop staff are fun and knowledgeable, and when we spotted humpback whales on the ride back one afternoon, they did a last minute whale watching tour for us! There were water, Gatorade, and snacks on the boat cooler.
I can’t recommend them enough, we will definitely be joining them for surf trips when we return to Mexico!

We went to Tranquilo Surf for surf lessons for me and for just surfboard rental for my partner. The staff and Josue were phenomenal and we had one of the best days on our trip. Josue is an excellent teacher and I had so much fun learning how to surf. We went to a place that wasn’t too crowded and had many opportunities to catch waves 🤙🏽

Would DEFINITELY recommend booking with them! They went above and beyond to ensure we had the best time. We will definitely come back!!!

Best surf instructors! Had the best experience surfing with Josué, couldn't recommend him and his team more. Had lots of fun, felt safe and also learned a lot thanks to his guidance. 100/100!

Brought my kids this time and it was wonderful! My 10 year old son tends to be super anxious but the instructors took him under their wings and he had a great time - "This is changing my life" and "I got seventeen rides!" where his comments. Also my 14 year old daughter loved it so much she snuck into my lesson even though she was still tired from hers. These guys made surfing accessible and fun for my kids and I am immensely grateful! Tranquilo is the best!!!

One of the highlights of our trip to Punta De Mita. An amazing day out for us first time surfers. The crew was fun, attentive, and diligent. All four of us got to stand on our first day surfing. Overall great value. Highly recommended!

Looking for someone to take me out to the Marietas lslands for some bird photography. We were staying at the Dreams Hotel Nuevo Vallarta where Daniel a great guy working there had a friend with a boat that could take me out to the lslands. lt turned out to be one of the best things l did on this hoilday. Josue` and Chano where fantastic guys and nothing was too much trouble taking me around all of the islands and getting as close to the birds as possible making sure l got the best possible bird shots. Anyone wanting to do the same will not go wrong with Josue'. Bonus also had great views of Humpback whale with her calf along the side of boat. lt was just a great day and cannot recommend these guys enough.

I first went out with Josue of Tranquilo Surf about 12 years ago. I took friends to surf with him again 6 years ago. Just went 2 weeks ago for my third time. Josue has provided me with my best surf experiences. I have learned the most while in the water with Tranquilo. My most recent waves were very special for me after going through breast cancer, a mastectomy and reconstruction surgery.

Josue's crew is awesome. They are generous in giving advice about other activities, where to eat and more. We also hired them to go whale watching and snorkeling. Fantastic!

Set up a semi private tour for myself and my sister. Everything was flawless from booking to getting there and surfing. The experience was simply fantastic. Regina took her time to explain to us exactly how to surf and took us out within Chano. They both ensured we were safe and in no time we were up on the board riding the soft waves of Punta de Mita. Libby who is the manager was excellent as well. Highly recommend Tranquillo if you are a first time surfer. It was a morning of smiles and laugh and overall great memories ❤️❤️🤙🏽🤙🏽 🏄‍♀️
