Our top three frequently asked questions...

Where do we meet for our tour?

Paddle Zone is found at the southern end of Mismaloya Beach. Mismaloya is seven miles south of Puerto Vallarta, about 20-30 minutes travel by private vehicle, car rental, über ride, taxi, or public bus.

Access Mismaloya Beach by turning right immediately after the Hotel Barceló and following the dirt road all the way down to the beach. If you're driving, you can park along this road. At the end of the road, walk left across the footbridge or river mouth and follow the beach to the south. You will pass by several restaurants until you reach the end of the beach.

Walk up from the beach and we will be there waiting for you, beneath the palm thatched palapa roof of our shop with the kayaks and paddle boards out front.

I have never maneuvered a stand up paddle board on the ocean before… can I paddle to Los Arcos?

Sure thing—we’ve got you covered! If you’re new to stand up paddle (SUP), please arrive one hour earlier than your scheduled departure for your complimentary paddle boarding lesson.
