Whether you're a Mexico Virgin or not, the Cabo Surf Hotel in San Jose del Cabo sounds kind of awesome. And that's largely due to the Mike Doyle Surf School that's on site.

The school (and hotel) is right on Playa Acapulquito and manned by veteran surfer Mike Doyle. The surf lessons begin at $70 per person for group instruction and range from 1.5 to 2 hours. Private instruction is $95 per person. Those prices include board rentals, beach and water safety instructions, and rashguard use for the lessons.

Students are also asked to arrive 20-minutes early for the lesson to watch a 10-minute instructional video on surfing so you have some idea of what to expect when you hang 10.

Accommodations at the hotel are very chill and laid-back--remember this is a low-key beach hotel, not some five-star resort. Room categories range from a standard ocean room (two double beds) to a junior king villa. The rooms include free WiFi and in some of the larger ones, a kitchenette and jacuzzi. The hotel also has a spa, restaurant and pool on-site. Room rates start at around $265 a night.

While the Shorebreak Hotel in Surf City aka Huntington Beach, Calif., won't be open until sometime later this spring, there are still several hotels out there where you can learn to tackle some waves--whether it be your first time surfing or if you're just looking to ride the ultimate high.

The Waikiki Beach Marriott in Oahu, Hawaii has just launched a new surf package where guests can enroll in surf school on Waikiki Beach.

Here, where legendary Hawaiian surfers have honed their skills and shared them with the world for more than 100 years, you'll be up and riding under the supervision of seasoned, professional instructors.

The package includes accommodations for two, use of surfboard, leash and jersey, and the all-important surf instruction--two and a half hours at the Faith Surf School with surfing instructor Tony Moniz. The surf school was recently voted Best of Honolulu in 2008 for Best Surf Lessons.

Rates start at around $309 per night. The surf school instructions are valued at about $75 per person.
