My family just returned from Todos Santos where my wife and two boys had surf lessons with Mario Surf School. Overall, the experience was positive but I wouldn't say 5 star special. The surfing itself was a lot of fun and the beach was great that day for beginners. That said, the boards were very beat-up, Mario's directions were not... More

We took a refresher...and were pushed on the board without further explanations..which was somehow a pitty because the waves would have been perfect....

Sorry for your disappointing experience. We always ask our clients what their surfing level is so we can help them achieve their surfing goals. We always encourage our clients to let us know when they want more instruction before, during or after their lesson. More

Mario Surf school was recommended by All About Cabo Discounts and we couldn't be happier. Our driver arrived early in our private transportation and was very friendly, offering to stop and get us coffee and food. The drive to Cerritos was about 45 minutes from our hotel, but goes quickly as there is little traffic and good conversation with the... More

We joined Mario and his team last week for surfing at Cerritos beach. What a great day! Mario had his driver pick us up (right on time) at our hotel in Cabo. When we arrived, the instructors were waiting for us on the beach. They had an umbrella and chairs on the beach waiting for us too. Boards were brought... More

Mario has over 200 boards to choose them and a staff that somehow always seems to find a good spot to give a lesson even when ocean conditions are abominable. He delivers to your residence and picks his boards up after you leave.. I have sent dozens of guests to him over the years and never heard anything but compliments... More

Mario and his guys are awesome! We called to rent boards since they weren't on the beach the day we arrived (waves too big) and they were there the next day with the boards (Walden min-magic) that we wanted, along with boogie boards. Rented for six days at a very reasonable price (can also be rented daily). Lots of respect... More

Mario is usually set up at cerritos beach every day during peak season (winter). Me and a buddy met up with him during September. He gave us a great price, and was very reasonable when we broke a board. When in todos santos, rent from mario.
