I took a hydrofoil lesson with Adam - it was great - I would highly recommend signing up with them. It’s well located and easy to work with your schedule.

After the hustle and bustle of Los Cabos a visit to Playa Central is highly recommended. Great people, food, drink, kite boarding and Fiesta! Mesquite wood fired oven and grill produces some delectable edibles from both La Tierra y El Mar! Great fish sandwiches !...More
