If you are looking for a very unique and personalized surfing holiday on mainland Mexico, then Nexpa Surf Camp is the place for you. Nexpa Surf Camp really do not like to use the term “Surf Camp” as they consider themselves to be more of a boutique style surfing experience, catering to intermediate and above level surfers that want to stay in luxury accommodation at an affordable price. We offer the complete waterman package including surfing, fishing, tow-in surfing, and spear fishing
Your host Juan (aka John) married a local girl named Alfa and their family now includes their two sons, Pablo and Marcos. He has spent over 20 years on this Coast of Michoacan, Mexico perfecting his skills guiding clients in the surf, and taking them on fishing and diving expeditions. If Juan’s not surfing, then he’s either out fishing, free diving with his spear gun, or towing in surfers with his jet ski on the biggest days. He has expert knowledge to make the right choices on any given day. Nexpa Surf Camp is a family run business and they welcome you to come and join their family.
Airport transfer available:
Ixtapa Zihuatanejo International Airport (US$38 per person)
You will be provided with three nights accommodation at Villa Tropical. The well-decorated three-story Mexican mansion is perched on the cliff's edge with ocean view bedrooms located in the picturesque beachside town of Caleta De Campos. They are just a short eight minutes drive from the world-class pointbreak of Rio Nexpa.
Villa Tropical offers a big upgrade compared to the self-catered budget accommodation offered at Nexpa Beach. After a long days surf, nothing beats lounging around the Villa Tropical poolside enjoying a few drinks while they prepare your traditional Mexican meals.
For this surf camp package, you will be able to enjoy a four-day surfing vacation on the coast of Michoacan. Rio Nexpa is a very consistent left-hand point break which can often offer rides of up to 300 yards long with multiple take-off spots, which is the main wave that you will be surfing. It is one of Mainland Mexico’s premier waves that can accommodate surfers of all levels.
If you like to surf rights, just a short walking distance away on the other side of Rio Nexpa is a cobble-stone reef which often can be surfed with just you and your friends. It is also one of the favorite tow-in surfing waves when the swells are pumping.
In every surf destination, local knowledge can make the difference on the quality of wave you surf on any given day. Not too far away from Rio Nexpa, the Coast of Michoacan has many other waves to offer such as Hua Hua, La Ticla, Pascuales, La Saladita, The Ranch, and more. The Nexpa Surf Camp guide and services will help you to make this surf trip of a lifetime.
This surf camp will take place at Caleta de Campos in Michoacan, Mexico. It has a small town charm with friendly locals and many world class waves in the area. It is perfectly located in the center of Mainland Mexico’s top surf breaks.
Caleta translates to “Bay” in English. The bay of Caleta De Campos is perfect for bay swimming, fishing, diving, or just to relax. There are many local seafood restaurants on the sand where you can have a meal or put back a few beers. And it often gets a fun right-hander breaking off the jetty that’s protected from the onshore winds.
Just walking distance from Playa Caleta De Campos is the main plaza in town. In this small pueblo, there are many local restaurants, Grocery Stores, Internet Café, and much more. A great place to experience an authentic Mexican culture.
If you want to venture out for the day, there are other destinations worth seeing nearby. Besides the world class surfing beach of Rio Nexpa, which is just eight minutes away, there are waterfalls, hot springs, and many pristine beaches to discover and explore.
