Shane from Australia
“Have just returned from 5 weeks at Punta Mita.
Last surfed La Lancha in Xmas/New Year 2008 before the road was constructed. Most days there were 3 or 4 surfers.
This year the first day 53 surfers. 3 Surf schools including one from Sayulita. Mictlan SUP surf school learning in the main break takeoff area. Ridiculous.
I still enjoyed my surfs here and had plenty of waves but it has become a victim of easy access & reliable, enjoyable waves.

Surfed El Anclote & Stinkys in Punta Mita when they were working & Stinkys in particular was fun with very few out.
I love this area (the food, relaxed lifestyle etc) which is why I travel from Australia but visited San Jose del Cabos last year (Costa Azul) where you can walk into the water from your accommodation with 3 breaks out front so would probably prefer to return there.”
