Turnkey Water Sport Business Opportunity



The beautiful beaches of Mahahual are the perfect places to learn to SUP!


Imagine…white sandy beaches kissed by turquoise Caribbean waters and the mystical Maya jungle is your office. It’s time. Your adventure begins now.

Mahahual is a small fishing village where once nothing more than blue ocean and swaying coconut palms existed. This secluded seaside town has the ageless charm of the Caribbean that is thought to exist only in Jimmy Buffett songs and island tales. Mahahual became a cruise ship port-of-call in 2001 with the building of Puerto Costa Maya. Cruise ship passengers and vacationers enjoy the simplicity of bungalows, beach bars, shrimp ceviche, lazy afternoons in the shade and the serenity of flat-water paddling. Tourists are pleasantly immersed in tranquility when easily gliding over the quiet calm waters above brain coral, sea fans, tropical fish and spotted eagle rays.



The MesoAmerican reef is amazing to view from a SUP.

The MesoAmerican reef is the second largest barrier reef in the world. It begins at the northern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula and extends all the way to Honduras, making Mahahual the perfect place for a flat-water SUP experience. The shallow depth of the waters inside the reef creates a blue lagoon between the white sand beaches and the ancient coral formations.

UnderToe Mexico Stand Up Paddle Adventures was the passion of a Texas expat who moved to Mahahual in 2011 to follow her dream of living in a tropical paradise and enjoying the sport she loves. Carolyn Fairris Thomas has built the only stand up paddle board school and rental business in Costa Maya and has a solid reputation in the local market and on the internet.



The UnderToe Shop is the only SUP school and rental business in Costa Maya.


UnderToe has earned a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence in just three cruise ship seasons and is ranked as the #3 activity in Costa Maya. The many Trip Advisor reviews reflect the quality of Carolyn’s fun approach to teaching tourists the art of SUP.

After teaching hundreds of tourists from kids to octogenarians, Carolyn is ready to retire. UnderToeMexico Stand Up Paddle Adventures is truly a “turn-key”, first class operation. Everything that's needed for a new owner to step in and start doing business is in place.



The waters of Costa Maya are crystal clear and shallow.
