Las Olas was founded in 1997 by a woman who has dedicated
over 25 years to board sports. As the first of its
kind, others will continue to imitate our program,
but our success grew from vast experience and a
genuine love of surfing, culture, and friendship.
Our ratings are unsurpassed. Guests have consistently
rated us with five star reviews and heartfelt support
from the beginning. Las Olas' exceptional crew offers
uncommon professionalism and attention to detail. Highly
qualified and motivated, their focus is for everyone
to excel and have fun.
We believe since 1997 we're making the world a better

Mexico has been the most wonderful host for Las Olas.
The climate is mild. The jungle is fertile. The
waves are gentle and the people are generous and
friendly. The village is rich in culture and hospitality.
One of our favorite experiences at Las Olas comes
from our immersion into the community.
The village is home to fishermen, surfers, Bohemians,
and a thriving Mexican population. Like many Mexican
villages, the action takes place around the lively
town square. The beach, restaurants, gift shops,
and coffee shops, are all within walking distance.
This special community is a diverse place of incredible
charm and optimism. After visiting for years, we
sense this more and more each trip. Our experiences
have proven that the people of this great land are
warm and wonderful hosts. In return, we try our best
to respect their culture, pace, and dignity while
representing our heritage in a positive way, too.
Your villa features open architecture with cabana-style
enclosed bedrooms. Every villa is a work of art
individually designed and built by local craftsmen
and artisans. None are the same; all are charming.
Expect all the features of a regular hotel– comfortable
beds, hot and cold water, kitchettes, but that's
where the similarities end. Here you'll steal wide
open views of the shoreline, surf break, and the
big blue sea.
A short walk to the village takes you to la Casita,
the Las Olas clubhouse, where you'll meet for class,
pick up your board, and ramble less than a block
to la playa. From there the surfbreak is directly
out. When you're finished, shower off back at La
Casita and stroll into town for a meal or up the
beach to your villa for a little siesta.
The surfbreak is a reef that breaks right to a sandy
shore. The waves are plentiful, yet forgiving.
The location has been chosen for its warm waters,
typically gentle waves and friendly surfing community.
Las Olas guests surf on soft deck starters or hand-shaped,
performance longboards made specifically for women.
Stand Up Paddle
There’s no better place to learn stand-up paddleboarding.
You'll be gliding over the warm waters on your first
voyage. Let us know if you're interested in exploring
the shoreline between surf sessions.
When most of our supermarket
food is shipped in from another hemisphere, it's
refreshing to eat produce from farmers who understand “local” to
mean “from across the street”. Fish from
just beyond the surfbreak, mangos from the neighbor,
and fresh vegetables off the truck daily make up
the ingredients of your menu.
At Las Olas, you won't eat in a hotel cafeteria
either. Experience a variety of dining options as
you explore the locally owned cafe and cantinas available
to you. We have special arrangements with family
restaurants throughout the village.
Special diet requests? Just let us know. Our crew
is here to meet your needs.
