*Attack the Wave*

Although it may seem scary at first, it is in your best interest to attack the wave and paddle towards the pocket. Instead of waiting for the wave to come to you, you can generate more speed and have much more control when you attack the wave. It is much scarier to turn your back to the wave and wait for it to catch up to you instead of facing it head on and becoming one.

5-Star Reviews

I don’t know if my family will ever stay anywhere else in San Jose ever again! The team at Let’s Do Mexico are beyond hospitable and accommodating. The apartment is in excellent shape, super clean, and you can’t get a better view. Location is perfect. Not to mention the on call help with recommendations for everything you could ever need a recommendation for! Zach, Kylie, and Ricky are the three musketeers of San Jose - here to make your vacation dreams come true! 😂 Seriously though, can’t say enough how well taken care of we were. Ricky came at the drop of a hat multiple times to help us with a few things and was just the most helpful and joyful human. Kylie recommended a charter service that we ended up booking and spent the day on a yacht sailing around La Paz and it was the best part of our trip! 10\10 slam dunk, team. Thank you so much you guys! We will back. (probably really soon) -Chloe Seppala
