If you want to learn how to surf this is the place. Lalo and his crew are awesome. Lalo has been in business for about 25 years and definalty knows what he is doing. They are very knowledgeable and great at teaching/communicating. After the first day we were hooked and kept coming back for more. If you can have them take you out in boat to a surf spot.

Lalo, the owner, and his right hand man Fox, were great! They were very knowledgeable and attentive, while out in the water, with us both. Both os us got up within the first few minutes and we enjoyed our time out in the water immensely. These guys are laid back, they know what they are doing, and they make you feel comfortable doing something they have been doing for years! We would highly recommend them! have fun!

I've been surfing in Punta Mita for years and always go to Accion Tropical when I need a guide or bring a friend who wants to learn. Lalo is a fantastic guide and all the other people that work there are great. The instructors are the best in the area and you will be surfing within moments. The quality of rental board is much better than you would expect. Allowing may even bring an underwater camera to get some shots of your rides. I couldn't imagine using another outfitter. Definitely recommend.

Totally thrilled with service we received. Three women surfing for four days in a row. Wonderful skill appropriate breaks with coaching when needed. Fox, Lalo and Ivan all very attentive and receptive to our requests. We are back in San Diego now and hard to go into cold small crumbly surf after such amazing days in Punta Mita! Thanks Accion.

I would give Oso 10 stars if they'd let me. I was referred to Oso by Wingnut who is a professional surfer. He said Oso is a kind, humble soul and when he takes you to sea...it's magic! That's exactly what it was...magic! My dad and I were up on a board and surfing 4-7 ft waves on day 1. Oso has been surfing since he was 11 years old and knows the ocean/swells/winds/weather/spirituality of the sea like no one I've ever met. He is a gifted instructor and gave us just the right instruction we needed to improve our technique and calm our energy level. We knew early on that he wasn't just teaching us how to surf...he was teaching us life lessons that were deeper and more meaningful. By day 3 we were riding waves with some style and Oso felt like family. He and his sidekick Neptuno made our trip! He works out of Hotel Cinco, which is a beautiful hotel of mostly 2-3 bedroom suites (with washer and dryers :-) on the ocean. Surfers paradise! If you're in Punta Mita looking for surfing lessons, Oso is your guy! We will be back!
