"DON'T EXPECT MUCH - YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR"
The location of the property is good, it is only a 5 minute walk to the beach and to punta surf spot. Not an ocean view- you cant see the ocean from the villa. There are numerous restaurants, cafes and surf shops around.
The property itself is beautiful and has lots of greenery. Also there are mango trees everywhere that drop fruit right in your hands and it's delicious. There are hammocks to chill in and a swimming pool to cool off. When there were no people staying in next apartment we used their palapa for yoga classes which was a great spot and it was cooled by some breeze.
Yoga classes were very good and both teachers were excellent. Worth mentioning that classes are not 2h long as originally advertised and there were no meditation classes. We had 2 yoga sessions (out of the 4) on consecutive days.

I traveled to Mexico for the first time in November 2015, and I am glad I chose to go to Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca. Puerto is an incredible place, and B Surfer definitely made my stay there especially memorable! Not only does this town offer world-class waves, but you will get to explore its unique culture, untouched beaches, welcoming locals, delicious Mexican food, and killer sunsets. Even if you don’t surf, Puerto offers lots of other things to do and places to see. But if you do surf (or would like to learn), this spot is absolutely amazing! You can tell the quality of the waves the moment you get there - from gorgeous Carrizalillo, to beloved La Punta, to the infamous Zicatela. And you simply fall in love.
I had been surfing for about four months when I booked my trip to do a surf camp with B Surfer. I didn’t really know much at the time, but B Surfer broke it down for me and helped with each stage of learning. Their comprehensive program includes theoretical surf lessons that cover anything you could possibly want to know about surfing, surf fitness that will whip you in shape and give you six-pack :), and yoga classes to help with your flexibility and focus. You will have daily surf lessons in the water with experienced instructors, who will guide you through every step and make sure you are safe, and a detailed analysis of your surf sessions through photos and videos. Everyone is always very helpful, and I never felt like there was a question that couldn’t be answered. After I spent two weeks with B Surfer, my surfing had improved significantly and gave me confidence. I started to have so much fun in the water! In addition to the educational part of the program, B Surfer offers lots of fun, social events, great trips, and tours to see the town. I made lots of friends in my surf camp and still keep in touch with everyone. I even went back this year to visit the instructors and surf my favorite wave again. If you are wondering about accommodations, the villa is gorgeous, safe, and super close to the beach and places to eat. I watched the sunrise and sunset every night from my balcony and could see and hear the waves at all times. I highly recommend B Surfer! They always have great deals, especially around the holidays. You will have the time of your life there.
I decided to go as it is a Russian-speaking surf camp. I put a very good mark here as I am a bit spoiled. But you’ll get the most of the money spent here - that’s for sure. It was a week of individual lessons with Jose - an awesome local guy! Really strong English and essential surfing-related terms in Russian make you feel that you have been taken care of properly. However, communication was always deeper than just words. If you feel the connection, expect yourself to have someone always got your back and have one of the best times of your life. If you are ready to learn, this is a safe bet! My first time at the Pacific was remarkable, thanks to these guys. Anya and Jose - I will show up again as soon as I have a chance to be in Mexico. Pragmatic stuff from my perspective: Accommodation: 4, the location of the accommodation: 5+, surf gear: 4+, instructors: 5+, ability to train yourself in a free time: 2, after work on individual lessons: 3. In order to summarize, I really enjoyed being here as a beginner with some background. Would recommend, definitely! See ya soon.
