      100% recommended for all ages and genders!!!
      Absolutely one of the best lessons I have ever taken! My boyfriend and I came to Tulum to take Wing Foil lessons with MC Kitesurf & Paddlesurf. We are complete beginners. From the start, Mauricio was very responsive and communicated with us regarding weather, conditions, and logistics. Mauricio is a FANTASTIC and PATIENT instructor. He took his time to teach us the wing on the beach first, then got us on the paddle board within the first 3 hour lesson. We came back the following day to practice more with the wing on the beach then back on the boards. Within 5 hours we were both up on the boards and making great progress. Mauricio really explains the basics very well. His correction techniques for feedback were always done positively and directly. You never had to guess what you were supposed to do. He was our biggest cheerleader throughout the lessons. Mauricio used safety equipment and had an area for us to store our beach bag safely while on the water. I cannot rave enough about what a great instructor he is. For reference, I am 53 year old female who is not super athletic or graceful. However, I was standing up on my board by day two! My boyfriend is 48 (and is an athlete) and was on the board on his own by day two. He was ready to move to a foil board the next day, since he obviously picked it up faster than me, but our vacation ended. We will now practice this sport at home to master the basics Mauricio taught us. We are already planning our next trip back for the next step of getting up on a foil board!

      Beautiful site, excellent service and fun paddleboarding. Great local tacos to finish it off. Tip: go on a day without too much wind.

      Fun in the lagoon
      Mauricio took me and my wife on a SUP tour of the lagoon. It was so awesome! I did not stand up (not great with balance) and my wife stood up about half the time. Mauricio was kind and encouraging and gave us helpful tips. We saw some pretty birds and the lagoon was really pretty. On the way back he gave us the choice - go around the lagoon side again or over the cenote in the middle. We chose the cenote and it was so pretty! Anyway, all this to say, even if you are middle aged and outta shape, you can probably still do this tour well and have fun. Also Mauricio moves the SUPs back and forth to the van so you can just chill in the lagoon before and after. After SUP, Mauricio took us to an amazing and vegan friendly taco place - super yum! Highly recommended!

      Fantastic kitesurf trip to Isla Blanca with Mauricio and his team
      Mauricio and his team are awesome! We had a fantastic day, chasing the wind to Isla Blanca. We spend the day in a beautiful lagoon with lots of space for all kiters, a cute little restaurant and lots of like minded people. I took a 1-hour refresher with Mathis, who gave me great advice to progress my skills and then the freedom to practice the entire day. Mauricio was very responsive and just a super nice guy to hang out and chat with. Would recommend to everyone in Tulum to stop by and kitesurf with MC Kitesurf.

      Mauricio and his team (Mathis!) are simply wonderful, very professional and fun! My wife took kite lessons and progressed a lot! I also kited in front of their kite school (Ahau Tulum), and we both had a great time! We also travelled one day with Mauricio's group to Isla Blanca for a perfect kiting day. Cheers to Mauricio and his team!

      Most recommendable kitesurfing experience!
      I had the most incredible experience improving my kitesurfing skills in Tulum with Mauricio and Roma in December! They are incredibly positive and friendly people who give amazing professional feedback on safety, kite control and riding even for advanced levels. I learnt transitions and did my first jumps with them. Highly recommend!

      Exceptional instruction. great fun
      I highly recommend MC Kitesurfing, located on the beach side of the Ahau Hotel in Tulum. Mauricio is the owner/operator. He and his international team (Tomas from Hungary and Roma from Belarus) are terrific instructors. Mauricio was an exceptional teacher: patient, encouraging with very clear explanations of the whys and hows of kite and board handling. I’m 70 and actually got up (briefly) on the board. Great fun!

      Kitesurfing Lessons With Roma
      Roma is an amazing kiteboarding instructor! He has a methodical teaching method where he starts with safety and then builds a foundation for learning carefully leading you through all of the steps to become a self sufficient kiteboarder. He is fun and a pleasure to work with. I can't imagine a better instructor. And Mauricio is fantastic. They will do everything they can to help you have a great experience. It was great to get to know them and I look forward to returning!

      Great vibes and a lot of fun
      From total beginner to riding the board in a few days, Roman and Mauricio were absolutely amazing every step along the way. They are meticulous and systematic in their teaching approach. We had loads of fun and sustainable progress every single lesson. Highly recommended if you want to learn to kitesurf, rent some equipment or just say hi and ask some questions - they guys have a great vibe and are very knowledgeable.

      We were able to get on the board surfing much faster than expected thanks to the really professional and encouraging instructions. Communication about the right weather / timing was always very honest. We really appreciated that and highly recommend starting kite surfing with Mauricio!

      Casa Cenoté SUP tour
      Mauricio took us out paddle boarding and free diving through casa cenoté. He was fantastic and so accommodating. We couldn’t have been happier spending the day with him. His knowledge of the area and the tacos at the end were just the bonus on top. We would love to get out with him again some time.

    We booked 2 of us to go for the 8am paddle boarding with Mauricio. It was just the two of us in the group which was great as we got a lot of personal attention. We were both first time paddle boarders but Mauricio got us up to speed and comfortable really quickly - progressing from kneeling to standing. He also taught us lots about improving our technique and how you would catch waves on the sea. Despite being a physical activity, we found the paddle boarding through the mangroves to be really calming and peaceful.

    After some paddle boarding Mauricio gave us a lesson on free diving (which he is very enthusiastic about!) and we snorkelled around the Cenote where we saw some fish, crabs and Pancho the famous crocodile that lives in the Cenote. Mauricio took us through a mangrove tunnel and also to a secret cave which I we would not have found without him.

    Mauricio also took some great photos of us paddle boarding and snorkelling and we had free time to paddle and snorkel until we were finished.

    At the end of the experience, we went to a delicious taco shop stocked with a variety of traditional flavours. Mauricio gave us some recommendations of what to try too!

    If you’re going to book this, we would definitely recommend going as early as possible. By 10am there were quite a few scuba and snorkel groups at the Cenote and it’s nice to have the whole place to yourself.

    Thank you so much for this great review!! It was a pleasure to show you this beautifull cenote and Panchita the crocodile. I am glad you get to see her because now she left the cenote, we are not sure if she will come back, maybe she find a boyfriend on a different cenote ;-) Have a great day. Mauricio.

    Mauricio and his SUP tour were a highlight of my month long trip to Tulum. We headed out to a stunning and quiet bay just outside of Tulum that was home to a beautiful reef filled with fish. We even saw a manta ray and Mauricio was nice enough to grab a video of it swimming for us to have as a keepsake from the trip.

    Mauricio was a great host, guide, and just in general a great person to spend the morning with. He answered any questions we had and was super fun to be around.

    I also want to mention that the tour felt so personalized. You definitely won't get that with the big company tours that are also offered in the area, so I always recommend people to go with locals like Mauricio if you do any sort of tours.

    Go with Mauricio and his team, you won't regret it!

    We had the most incredible time on a stand-up paddleboarding tour with Mauricio. He took me and my 3 friends to Casa Cenote to SUP, which was such a unique experience and environment. We even got to see a crocodile!! Mauricio is super fun and outgoing, and very knowledgeable about cenotes and Mayan culture. He taught us some new paddleboarding techniques and we did a fun circuit afterwards to test our skills. He also taught us a bit about freediving and 2 of us loved it so much that we signed up for a freediving certification course for next weekend! Would HIGHLY recommend doing a SUP tour with Mauricio when you're in Tulum, it was one of the highlights of our trip :)

    We went with 4 (over 50 yr old) sisters/family and had a great time paddleboarding around a large cenote/bay. Mauricio was a great guide, very informative, friendly, professional guy who is a great paddleboard instructor for beginners. Took us to a fantastic place for tacos at the end of the trip. Well worth the time and money!

    If you’re considering this activity, I highly recommend booking! Mauricio is very knowledgeable about the area, cenotes, and the best tacos in town!

    Our tour started off by meeting in-town at 8AM. We were one of the first people to arrive at the cenote, and pretty much had it all to ourselves which made paddle boarding that much easier since we didn’t have to lookout for other snorkelers. After exploring the cenote on paddleboard, we got into the water, snorkeled, swam under mangroves, and Mauricio gave us a crash course on free diving breathing techniques.

    I would recommend this to people who are comfortable in the water and can easily tread water.

    The whole time Mauricio was taking pictures and captured a bunch of great shots of us and what we saw that day.

    After we built up an appetite, Mauricio took us to an EXCELLENT taco shop in town, making recommendations on what we should get and on what else we should do while in Tulum.

    The whole excursion took maybe 4 hours, so we still had the whole afternoon to relax on the beach!

    Thanks again Mauricio!!

    A really cool experience in Tulum. I loved learning to paddleboard and experiencing the cenote. Diving in the mangroves was also a really unique and cool experience. We got there early in the morning and had the entire place to ourselves. Rocio is a fantastic guide and was super encouraging as we made our way around the cenote. We finished up at a taco place that he said was the best taco place in Tulum - and I totally agree - they were the best tacos we had in Tulum or Mexico City. I'd highly recommend this unique and fun experience.

    I can't say enough good things about this tour! Mauricio was a fantastic guide and instructor, and the cenote itself was so unique and beautiful. The tacos after were also excellent. We enjoyed the experience so much that we actually ended up booking a surfing lesson with him a few days later as well. Highly, highly recommend to anyone visiting the Tulum area!

    My boyfriend and I went on the stand up paddle boarding cenotes tour. I've never done stand up paddle boarding before so I was a little nervous, as I didn't want to hold up the group. We ended up being the only people on the tour, which was really nice. Mauricio (our guide / instructor) was awesome. We got to the cenotes early before anyone was there. So it was just Mauricio, my boyfriend and I. Very tranquil setting. Beautiful clear water that's the perfect temperature. We paddle boarded through the cenotes (even passed a crocodile which was terrifying but also super cool) and then went snorkeling. Mauricio took some photos of us (as we obviously couldn't bring our phones). Then we went to an amazing restaurant in Tulum Town for some authentic Mexican food. This tour was my favorite part of our Tulum trip!

    Thank you to Mauricio for an awesome tour of Casa Cenote by SUP and snorkel. It was the perfect introduction to paddle-boarding for our family on the calm waters and mangroves of Casa Cenote. Mauricio is an awesome guide and great teacher, allowing us to try different things depending on our comfort level with the snorkels and paddle-boards. We topped it off with a delicious and authentic lunch of pazole and quesadillas. Overall a perfect day. I would absolutely recommend the tour and Mauricio to anyone.

    We had the most amazing time with MCK. We actually took the Cenote tour as well as the lagoon tour and WOW we are so happy that we decided to do both. Helio was so kind and really knew how to capture some memorable moments for us to look back on. Everything went so smooth and was an experience that was unlike any I’ve had before. It was so fun going into town after for tacos too! We are quite the foodies and these tacos were delicious. It was great seeing such culture all around us and having time to soak that all up. We will definitely be back next year!!
