Welcome to Surf School by Highlife Mexico, founded by two determined women who, later joined by another capable partner, created this humble surf haven. Originating in Cancun, our community flourished for three successful years before finding a new home on Cozumel Island.

With a passion for sports and nature, we’ve crafted a surf experience that goes beyond lessons. Our skilled team of instructors is dedicated to turning each session into an unforgettable adventure. Join us on the shores of Cozumel for a unique surfing journey that celebrates the spirit of the ocean and the joy of riding the waves. Welcome to our wave-riding family!
