    They were accommodating to a delay in schedule. The shop is close to the beach which makes it easy. Like many places in Puerto Vallarta we found it difficult to locate the place except for the other instructions that said it was six blocks north of the boardwalk which we and most people know is the Malecon the best way to help locate this place is the Shell station as they had put in the description.

    Excellent instruction and hospitality. It was my first time to surf but with only half day lesson I could feel how fun Surfing is!!

    We had the pleasure of going stand up paddle boarding with JC. It was our first time trying it and JC was a great guide. It was a calm morning and we paddled down the scenic Malecon. We saw a sea turtle swimming around! JC was prompt, professional but fun and energetic. I would recommend this excursion!

    Booked two paddle boards online for a week in PV to be delivered to our hotel. Fernando was better than his word -delivered them as arranged on time with professionalism and great service. he’s a congenial guy who loves sports and goes the extra mile to make sure you do. Highly recommend!!! Go to the marina to board if you like flat water. Highly recommend them for any activity!

    Stopped in PV on a cruise. Did the paddle boarding with Humberto. Had a blast! Would definitely recommend! Because it is open water, I would recommend for those more willing to have fun, laugh at themselves when you fall in, and who wanta slightly more challenging experience. It is the most fun paddleboarding I have ever had because of the waves, but it was also the least easy. Humberto was a perfect guide, encouraging us to do it however we were most comfortable. He shared some fun things about the city, but I missed most of what he said bc we were the 2 in the back who kept falling in. It was a BLAST. If you are traveling on a cruise ship, know that the taxi from the boat to the shop was $5 each. On our way back we took an Uber (!!) And it was $6 total. Next time we would open the Uber app and just hail an uber outside the terminal and save a lot of the money.

    Fernando was a great teacher and guide. Very friendly and knowledgable. We plan to do more tours with them next time we visit Puerto Vallarta!

    We booked our lesson through a 3rd party on the phone wanting to go out on the water immediately because we were already down on the malecon. They called JC's shop and got us out on the water within the hour. JC was an amazing instructor, explaining the ins and outs of the board and strategies for actually standing up. We had been SUPing before on our own and neither of us had ever actually stood up without immediately falling back into the water. JC was SOOOO patient and encouraging with my wife and I and quickly both of us were standing up and paddling, having a blast! We will definitely be booking with Xiulta Riders when we return to Puerto Vallarta again.

    JC was the best instructor anyone could ask for (even tho we didn’t ask lol).. he’s an absolute blessing.. very understanding of how scared I was to actually stand up and he spoke very encouraging, kind words.. the instructions were very simple.. the excitement he has for his job shows.. my husband and I had a wonderful time! We’ll be back.. I’ll be able to swim next time :)
