Whether you are a seasoned surfer or are looking to try this watersport for the first time, we are here to help you find the best surfing in Mexico.

When is the Best Time to Surf in Mexico?

Oaxaca offers year-round surfing, but the best season to get in the water is during the summer months. This lasts from June through October offering nice weather, warm water temperatures, and impressive waves.

La Bocana

La Bocana offers an excellent surf spot near our luxury beachfront property, Montecito Beach Village. The breaks at La Bocana are consistent with the waves at Puerto Escondido, so you can usually expect big waves. If you want to learn surfing for the first time, you can sign up for lessons with Bocana Surf School here.

Barra de la Cruz

If you’re willing to take a short road trip (40 mins by car), you can access some of Oaxaca’s most famous waves! We highly recommend the idea of hiring a surf guide to help guide you to the best breaks and hidden access points.
