What is Stand Up Paddle?
SUP is one of the coolest and fastest growing 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!
Easier Than it Looks
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 2018 or later? When booking “Things To Do In Costa Maya” why not choose something different? Be the smart travelers and reserve an excursion directly with a reputable local tour operator.
We are current 2018 members of the Professional Stand Up Paddle Association and former members of Stand Up Paddle Industry Association.
More Location Information - provided by Undertoe Mexico
Thanks for finding us. The waters in front of the main village where we are located are protected by the reef and offer an area to paddle in that has a length of a little more than a mile. This area is easy enough for first-time paddlers to explore on their own.
For our advanced paddlers, we have the option of going around the reef (out into the open water) as long as the conditions are good. We can go south and paddle over the sunken boat and search for the sea turtles. Or, do some sort of a downwind paddle starting from the village and going south for 5+ KM, Or we can go to Laguna Bacalar (about an hour away) and paddle in the pristine water of the freshwater lagoon, paddling to “Pirate’s Channel” and various Cenotes.
Mid-December is quite busy in regards to Cruise Ships here, and there would be certain days that we would not be able to do any type of out-of-area paddles.
As far as places to stay, here are a couple hotels that we or friends have stayed at in the past and we know they are good and close to where our shop is.

You can rent a bikes if you don’t want to walk everywhere (about $10 a day I think)
Air bnb has a lot of other places as well. Beware some are far from village, out long sandy bumpy beach road via only access to village via taxi (which takes a bit for the taxis to drive out)
If you do decide to Airbnb, we do not have any major grocery stores in the village here, you would want to shop on the way down (PdC or Tulum). There are some mom and pop stores here that stock things, however limited. There is a good assortment of restaurants here too.
