SUP is one of the coolest new water activities on the planet and Puerto Costa Maya is the perfect place to do it!
Imagine the feel of gliding serenely across aquamarine Caribbean waters over a school of brilliantly colored tropical fish and ancient coral reefs. It is almost like “walking on water”. SUP boards (Stand Up Paddle) make this possible.
UnderToe Mexico has the only PSUPA certified instructor in Costa Maya who can TEACH you in English, all the basic techniques needed to stand up and paddle!
A good sense of balance and enthusiasm is really all that is needed to paddle board in Costa Maya, Mexico. SUP is easy to learn for ALL ages and levels of ability – it is fun and a perfect excursion for the entire family.
Coming to Costa Maya in January 2017 or later in the year? When booking “Things To Do In Costa Maya” why not choose something different? Be the smart travelers and reserve an excursion directly with a local tour operator.
